It certainly didn’t feel like winter last Sunday morning on Sydney Harbour. The 25 members who competed in the final heats of the Winter Championship were treated to a stunning morning complete with a brilliant blue sky, unseasonably warm water and air temps approaching 20 degrees. The 10-12 knot Westerly made for a competitive day of racing. In the Standards Rod Barnes won heat 19 and Campbell Patton took first in heats 20 and 21. For the Radials Sylvie Stannage kept up her winning ways in heats 19 and 21, whilst in heat 20 Martin White showed us that Master’s can still beat the Youth once in a while.
A huge thank you to PRO Instructor, Gerry Donohoe; learn to run a race participants David Rogers and Richard George; and COTD / Co-COTD, David Newman and David Airey.
Sunday was the final day of racing for the Winter Championship and after a competitive series Geoff Kirk took the title in the Standards, and Sylvie Stannage cruised to victory in the Radials. Congratulations!
