Junior Sail Auckland was sailed from Kohimarama Yacht Club. It was a light day on the Saturday, with flat water and winds of under 8 knots from the South West. On the second day a moderate North Easterly breeze settled in from 9am, which provided perfect conditions for the second day of racing. Kim Admore ran an excellent course, with the Green and Open fleets using the same marks, just a couple of hundred metres off the beach.
Tim Adair won the Open fleet. WBC had 5 sailors in the top 20, in a fleet of 80. Jono Weston and Jono Nicholas were 1st and 2nd 12 year olds and both featured in the top 20. Robbie McCutcheon finished all of his races, which made for a long day on Sunday for an 11 year old, and did well to score a 61st.
Some of the Green fleeters were a bit cautious, but once on the water with plenty of support around them, they did really well, with Grierson Fox finishing 6th Charlotte Probert on 12th, and Finn Buckeridge finishing in 2nd in race 1.
Minori took some great pictures, which he has shared at http://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.3019111648869.132709.1594995142&type=1
