Congratulations to our newest Australian Champions!
John Cooley & Simon Hoffman have convincingly sailed their way to first place at the 29er Australian Championship on Sydney Harbour. The 16 race series saw a mixture of wind and at times terrible weather! John & Simon won 13 of the 16 races!
Winning race 15 on the final day and posting 10 second places through the series, clubmates Tom Crockett & Tom Grimes finished in 2nd place. They copped an OCS in race 13 and their other drop was an 8th.
Tom Stivano & Henry Stabback finished the series in 11th with their best race placing a 2nd in race 15. These boys posted a good consistent score card throughout the series with many top 10 finishes.
Emma Jones & Lucas Geddes finished a creditable 28th in a fleet of 44 with their best race score a 17th in race 6.
The 49er Australian Championship was held at the same venue and our Harry Morton, sailing with Harry Price finished 3rd overall. A win in race 2 and a very consistent series of 2nds and 3rds saw them place behind crews from WA and QLD.
