Well done to Alan Jones and the team from Sailability Crystal Bay for running the Pittwater Winter Regatta incorporating the NSW 2.4mR Class Championships on June 9 & 10. Eight 2.4mRs and five Hansa class boats competed, with sailors coming from NSW, ACT and VIC.
Race Officer David West and his on-water race management crew managed to complete 3 races each day, with very light and variable winds on Saturday and a moderate to fresh south westerly on Sunday accompanied by some rain.
Congratulations to Canberra sailor Peter Russell (AUS40) for his dominant win in the NSW 2.4mR Championships, dropping a second place to finish with 6 points. Michael Leydon (AUS46) was 2nd on 14 and Luke Ratcliffe (AUS32) 3rd on 16 points.
Charles Weatherly from Ballarat in Victoria (AUS2763) had an almost perfect scorecard and dropped his 2nd place finish in race 2 to win with a 5 point total. Jason Elwes (AUS1067) was 2nd on 9 points and Alison Weatherly (sailing Hansa 303 AUS788 in the otherwise Liberty fleet) was 3rd.
