Read the Inner West Courier article - FINAL TWIST TO F11 CHAMPIONSHIP about the inaugural Upper Harbour Interclub F11 Regatta
The flying eleven upper harbour club championship concluded today on a high at the presentation of awards. The host club of the day was Drummoyne sailing club where the sailors were lucky to have a 5-10knot easterly with the wind arriving 20minutes before the scheduled start time. Two races were done on a triangle formation course around the islands in the Parramatta river. The first of which was won by Harry Morton and crew Anita McCallum by a comfortable margin over the rest of the fleet. In the second race Nicole Barns and Jameson Coombs showed good first leg tactics and covering skills to defend their lead from Harry and Anita to take the win in the second race.
The presentation after the racing at Drummoyne was a testament to the success of the regatta with a packed out club house. The winner of the Upper harbour interclub from Belmont was 1310 Harry Morton and crew Anita McCallum on 12 points, second 1290 Nicole Barnes and Jameson Coombs on 22 points and third, 1337 Caitlyn McIntosh and Sophie McIntosh on 24 points. Congratulations to these teams in a close and challenging regatta. The sailors over the course of the interclub series all improved greatly with most improved awards going to 1302 Max and Chris, 1326 Eddie and James, and 1319 Emma and Billy. Congratulations to all the 28 crews who enjoyed the racing between the many river clubs!
