A full fleet of entries and a brisk breeze saw five experienced sailors along with seven novices take up the challenge and a very hard fought and entertaining battle for the title ensued.
It was all even going into the last race with Elizabeth Kenyon and Kohl Horton.
Even on the last short leg to the finish, the two battled it out with a small misjudgement by Horton, giving Kenyon the win.
At the same event were our new race and event management officials, who were working under Richard Brown from New Zealand on their certification.
Aitutaki and Rarotonga sailing clubs are set to benefit from the new addition of eight officials from this certification.
The result was a well-run regatta with plenty of enthusiasm and new skills being tested much to everyone’s delight at the outcome.
