NB Sailsports Series Belmont 16′s
The Belmont leg of the NB Sailsports Sprint Series saw a continuation of the light conditions experienced at Georges River and Avalon. Three races were completed in light westerly winds with 35 boats competing.
Thanks to Belmont 16′s for running this event. The winds were not kind but the management on the water and the facilities were first rate. The rain stayed away and despite the lack of wind it was a pleasant day on the water.
Lorenzo Cerretelli won the Standards convincingly with two first and a second place from Ric Longbottom on a countback from Ian Alexander. Lorenzo continues to lead the series overall.
The Alexanders also had a win in the Radials with series leader Finn the winner from Jordan Makin and Chris Meech. Finn’s two wins and a second on the day keep him firmly at the top of the overall series leader board.
Jack Littlechild also had a 1,1,2 result in the 4.7′s winning from Mark Lewis and Jack Moran. Tom Farley leads the series overall.
The next leg of the event will be on Sunday 2nd August at Gosford Sailing Club with the first start at 1.00pm.
