Well done to all the sailors who came along to the Winter Champs. It was a wonderful weekend for sailing and many of our sailors
were delighted to find that the efforts that they put in over winter has lifted their capability, and enjoyment of sailing a lot.
Wakatere had 36 sailors across all off the classes, with some great results:
Mathew Kempkers 3rd in the starlings, with Jack Simpson in 7th ( first regatta in a starling) in a fleet of 45.
Paul Snow Hansen 1st in the 470's
Hamish Dunning Beck 2nd in the Techno windsurfers.
Marcus Sommerville 2nd in Open fleet in Opti's in a fleet of 87 ( 13 from Wakatere).
Notable performances from:
Tim Adair 6th
Leonard Takahashi-Fry 16th
Sam Wallis 28th
Sam Barnett 35th
Jono Weston, first 10 year old in 48th.
Well done to some of the group for whom it was their first Open fleet regatta out of Wakatere.
