Metropolitan Championship RPAYC 9-10 March 2013
Thanks to the great organisation at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and all who competed we had a terrific Metro Championship last weekend.
The weather was kind with excellent breeze on Saturday and a bit less on Sunday to let us recover.
Our PRO Col Chidgey and the start finish crew appreciated the luxury of the Afreds start boat and set a tough assignment with a couple of O3 and I3 courses and one hour long races on Saturday. With just under 3 hours of race time most sailors had a good workout on the water and slept soundly on Saturday night.
Congratulations to Colin Cheng (Standard pictured left), Christopher Anderson (Radial) and Finnian Alexander (4.7) for their convincing wins. Each had all firsts in the six race series after a drop and Colin and Finnian won every race.
Dianne Sissingh braved an injury after being attacked by the boom vang the previous week. She sailed very well to win the Womens. Of the Masters Sean Feeney (Standard Master) and Martin White (Radial GM) did very well to finish second and third respectively in the open fleet. In the youth divisions Christopher Anderson naturally was best in the Radial and Colin Suvak who was 4th overall was best in the Standards.
