Fantastic racing conditions in medium breezes were experienced in Sydney harbour in amongst hundreds of other racing yachts including the Sydney Hobart Maxi yachts practicing. A number of QLD racers were entered in the Open Division.
An eleven race series was held over 3 days with very close racing in the leading group of boats. Blake Wilson was our top placed QLD sailor achieving fifth place overall with a strong consistent performance recording a number of second places in individual races of the series. The next two QLD placcings were Hamish Thorne in seventh and Ashleigh Swadling twelfth overall and Zach Edwards placed 21st overall.
