Peter Burling (24) and Jacek Noetzel (POL) - NZ Nationals and Pre-Worlds, A-Class Takapuna 2014 Georgia Schofield
2012 London Olympic silver medalist and 2013 World and European Champion in the Olympic 49er skiff, Peter Burling is the 2014 National A Class Champion. The result was handed to him in Race 2 after Glenn Ashby, rounded the gate for a third lap in a two lap race!
Consequently, Ashby’s result was fifth, otherwise Ashby would have won on count-back.
Ray Davies came second and Murray Philpott third.
