Wentworth Sailors Win the InterDoms!

'What a regatta! Wentworth finishes victorious after 15 straight wins. Wind conditions on the last day were much lighter than our previous two race days - much like the morning of the training day which gave us really good competitive racing. Simply the best regatta ever for the College and our incredible team! Thank you for such a great regatta, I am very proud of you all!"  Liam Herbert, Captain

Best of luck to our InterDom Sailors!

Best of luck to the Wentworth Sailors who are currently competing against the top 3 teams in New Zealand and Australia in Melbourne. The weather forecasts have limited the amount of time on the water over the weekend. However, the sailors are back on the water today and have finished Round 1 with 5 wins out of 5 races.  They are now competing in Round 2, with 3 wins out of 3 races at the time of going to press. We are on the edge of our seats awaiting further news from across the Tasman!

Wentworth Sailors WIN Regional Regatta!

Our 420 Team Racing Squad had an outstanding North of the Bridge regatta on the 27th & 28th March at Algies Bay. Team Captain, Liam Herbert, led the team very effectively. The wind was 4-12 knots, predominantly from the east with a flat sea-state. There was particularly stiff competition from Kerikeri School in each Round Robin, and Westlake Boys also presented some tough competition in the stronger breeze. For a number of the crew it was their first 420 Teams racing regatta and a lot of learning took place. Our squad developed as a team through the regatta, showing real class in the later stages of the Round Robins and proving they have the composure to perform well when it really matters. 

The final result was a tie between Kerikeri School and Wentworth College at 21:21. The Race Officer then had to look to the individual races against our two schools which we won 3/5. Congratulations to everyone involved.
