Sail-World.com : Torrin Bright wins Sail Auckland in big winds
Torrin Bright wins Sail Auckland in big winds

'Getting Air at Sail Auckland - 30 knots of wind are just enough to make it fun - Sail Auckland'    Suellen Hurling
Oceanbridge Sail Auckland 2013 came to a roaring conclusion, with strong winds again pushing the sailors to their physical limits on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.

On the final day of Kiteboard racing, Tauranga’s Torrin Bright extended his lead on the fleet of 20 riders, extending his chain to six race wins in a row. Best women was Justina Sellers (NZL), finishing 12th in the open fleet.

Local board sailing coach Dave Robertson took the early regatta lead on day one, but Torrin proved to be unstoppable in the high winds of the final two days, Matt Taggert (GBR) completed the podium.

Kiteboards took part in Sail Auckland for the first time, and already provided the third biggest fleet, after the Lasers and the strong local OK fleet. Competitors and sailors alike were more than satisfied with the regatta - the weather provided fun conditions to sail and the Auckland organizers proved to be on top of the game, setting up perfect racing. Surely everybody is looking forward to the next edition of Sail Auckland, and probably future major class championship events.
