The 2015 NSW Teams Racing event was held on July 25 & 26 at Woollahra Sailing Club in Rose Bay. This year, eight teams from several NSW sailing clubs competed, with many sailors trying out teams racing for the very first time! Hunters Hill entered three teams (all of the sailors were new to teams racing) and showed lots of stamina and courage, especially on the last day of sailing when the wind picked up to 20+ knots! Other new teams racing sailors were scattered among the WSC fleets and they all did extremely well and showed great teamwork in trying to help their teams get around the course. Overall, everyone learned a lot about teams racing and had fun doing it. Many thanks to Adam South at WSC for hosting the event and to all the race organizers and officials that worked to put the event together!
