2017 Auckland Champs (KYC)
Day three of the 420 Auckland Champs started in a solid building gusty breeze that saw 20 knots at times deliver four great races. Jono Weston and Robbie McCutcheon made the most of today's conditions taking three wins to finish first overall. Xanthe Copeland & Annabel Cave finished just 2 points behind and Ella Gladwell and Alice Haslett took a nice second in Race 9 to finish their first regatta together in 3rd. Whilst the fleet was small the racing was close and the results kept tight till the end.
Thanks to for the regatta. Next weekend 12 boats are entered in the Oceanbridge NZL Sailing Regatta so we should see some more great racing as the crews from around NZ come together.
