Josh Junior Wins GJ Gardner NZ Open Keel Boat Champs

Josh with crew

Josh Junior and fellow Olympic Finn sailor Pieter Postma took time out from their Olympic campagns to compete in the Keel Boat Nationals. With crew Pieter Postma, Jono Clough, Verity Judge, James Sandall and Max Olivero they built an healthy lead on day but Dave Wood and crew hit their straps on Day two to keep Josh honest. Congratulations guys! What a great regatta... only 1 minute separated the fleet for much of the racing. After David came Matt Bouzaid in 3rd, Tugdual Piriou from New Caledonia and Melinda Henshaw.
