Harken Youth Int. Match Racing Championship - NZL

Well we had the last of the Flights today to decide the top eight boats to advance to Quarter Finals. Pressure was on both Juliet Costanzo and Niall Powers teams to get a couple more wins under their belt to advance. Nial Powers did just that but after being penalised 0.5 points on Day 1 for damage sustained to a boat cost them after winning four races.

Juliet Costanzo had trouble getting off the line today but finished in 9th position and Niall close behind one tenth.

The competition was very formidable and our RPAYC teams can hold their heads high putting it to a lot of the top ranked teams. The top teams just were more refined in all their manoeuvres and just a bit better in their boat handling and boat control. It was is a pleasure to be able to support this fine group of sailors. They are well respected by their peers and they all have had an amazing time and experience here in NZ.

I would like to acknowledge the other members of the teams. Jemma Hodgson Emma Rankin Antony Hawke Alistair Read Cam Whiteside Tom Quarry Ruby Scholten and Jasmine Bridge.

We would like to thank the Royal Nicholson Yacht Club in Wellington and RNZYS in Auckland for being fantastic hosts for both regattas.

Rob Brown Coach
