Hella Marine


Auckland A-Class Championship

20 March 2017 in Events

The Hella marine Auckland A-Class Championships were held at the Wakatere Yacht Club over the weekend.
Eight boats were contesting for the trophy (4 foilers, 4 floaters).

Day 1
South West breeze 8-15 knots, flat water. This suited the foiling boats very much with Bruce and Matty dominating the days points tied (4 races) for 1st place on 7 points.
Ed sailing his new AD3 had improved in leaps and bounds to record a 2nd & 3rd placing.
This made the floaters wishing that they were sailing flying boats...!

Day 2
Bought a very different day! We sat on the beach waiting for the breeze to fill in. We had a brief glimmer of hope when a nice South Westerly breeze filled in nicely, five boats sailed out to the race course but sadly the wind dropped to nothing and decided to head back to the beach.
After waiting for 3 hours a nice light north easterly breeze came in and it was game on! -

Bruce continued his dominating form from yesterday to record a 1st and 2nd and to be crowned "Hella Marine Auckland A Class Champ!", 2nd Matty Hart and 3rd Pat Ashby.

Congratulations to you guys!
