THE crew of Questionable Logic have returned to Airlie Beach with grins from ear to ear.
After finishing first in the Performance Racing class at Airlie Beach Race Week, Questionable Logic headed to the waters of Hamilton Island to compete in the 2010 Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.
With Whitsunday Sailing Club member Terry Archer at the helm, the 40ft yacht, usually found moored in the waters off Airlie Beach, finished second in the Performance Racing division one class.
“It's a dream come true,” Archer said. “We're absolutely wrapped.
“We beat a lot of bigger boats than ours, on water and on handicap.”
It was the first race week for Archer and his crew and after establishing himself as one of the leading skippers in the region after two consecutive wins in the past two Airlie Beach Race Week's, Archer decided to try his luck at Hamilton Island.
“We came over here with no expectations, to have fun,” he said.
“We said lets go and see if we can win a race at best.”
But after finishing with first and second placing's after the opening two races, the crew were determined to make the most of the occasion.
Unfortunately Questionable Logic were pipped at the post on the final day by Iago from Sydney who finished second on the final day of racing to leapfrog Archer's crew who finished in sixth spot.
“We got a bit more focused as the week went on,” Archer said.
“To be honest we were a bit down (after being beaten).
“But overall the guys sailed really well and they backed up two weeks in a row.”
