The latest victory comes a fortnight after Fire Stopping finished runner-up at the Australian 16ft Championships for the second year running.
Twelve months previously, Turner and crew Rob Napper and James Bury endured similar heartbreak when they finished one point behind the eventual winner after the final race was cancelled due to the light conditions.
"The first one was hard to take and the second one was even more painful," Bury admitted.
"But that's sailing and you've just got to get back out there and keep going.
"It's good that we've got the club championship to focus on. It's obviously a big deal at Manly and something we are extremely keen to win.
"It's not quite the same as a national title but we are extra motivated to win it to round off the season."
The defending club champions did not have everything their own way in a closely contested heat three-way shoot-out.
Fluid and Brydens were right in the race, with the former leading up until the second bottom mark.
