Congratulations to Matt Bouzaid, Andrew Baron and crew on winning our MRX Owners Champs and the Pacific Keel Boat Challenge after a close fought battle with the Hall Spars team. The regatta was sailed in perfect moderate North Easterly winds with the final result coming down to who beat who in the last race.

Third overall was Jean Louis crew from Noumea. Cercle Nautique Calédonien have been great supporters of our regattas coming to The Women’s and Open Keel Boat Nationals and this regatta twice in the last 18 months.

And 4th overall was a talented team of sailing graduates from Kohimarama Yacht Club ably assisted by Olympic Coach Phil Douglas, (thank you Phil). This is
a new initiative to attract top young sailors and their talented yachtie parents when they move on from the youth yacht clubs.

Thank you to the Royal NZ Yacht Squadron - great hosts for the regatta.
