This annual regatta is the perfect excuse for year 7 and 8 sailors to get a day off school!
The regatta is held at Kohi Yacht Club and 18 WBC sailors were in attendance from various schools.
The main prize goes to the school whose best 3 sailors of teams of up to 4 or 5 who score the best results, but the individual results are not ignored of course!
The conditions were moderate Easterlies, and the club trailer was filled up with a bunch of Optis, with Will Calver minding the food and water supplies for the sailors during the day.
The Belmont Intermediate team won last year, but in 2013 it was a battle to the end with Kohi sailors from Remuera Intermediate School who took the day with Belmont in second place with their team of Jono Nicholas in 4th, Jono Weston in 8th and Robbie McCutcheon in 12th and Luke Tomlinson in 23rd.
It was great to see so many newer WBC faces at the event in their Optis, so clearly a day off school still rates :)
