Edwin Delaat ticks off yet another successful race with podium finish. The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadrion Youth Training Programme member proved to have for what it takes.

14-year old skipper/owner Edwin Delaat and crew member Steve Alloway (Yachtyakka) won this year's challenging Auckland to Tauranga race 2011 on PHRF in the two-handed division.

They made a brief appearance at the Tauranga Yacht & Power Boat Club and sailed Crac-A-Jac, the Farr 727, back to Auckland, a 250 nm round trip.

A great race and a great result for the little Farr 727 skipperd by young Edwin Delaat.

Crac-A-Jac's support crew attended the prizegiving with Edwin's sister Kathlyn taking pocession of the enormous trophy. All credit to the Tauranga Yacht & Power Boat Club organisers & sponsors to make this annual race once again a success.
