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.
