Middle Harbour Yacht Club member, Ben Nossiter, is the Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta champion, following the announcement at the official Prizegiving event last night. Nossiter steered his yacht “Sirius” to a win in the ‘Adams 10’ Division over the weekend and then the four man crew came up trumps in the Audi Drive Challenge at Eastern Creek yesterday.

Ben Nossiter will now take delivery of the major prize - Audi’s all new A4 1.8 TFSI multitronic sedan - well ahead of its national launch in May. The vehicle is valued at $66,000.

Two representatives from every division-winning boat at the Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta participated in the Audi Drive Challenge at Eastern Creek Raceway in a test of skill and accuracy. The driver with the most-accurate time from one lap of the slalom course to the next is declared the overall winner.

Following instruction from Audi’s motorsport ambassador Brad Jones, a two time Australian Super Touring Car Champion, drivers were put through their paces and the results flowed from there.

Of the 18 sailing divisions at the Regatta, only 15 boats were able to send drivers to the Final Challenge, making the odds of winning very strong. “Congratulations to Ben Nossiter and his crew for an outstanding effort over the weekend. Audi continues to be proud to support competitive sailing in Australia and I am very pleased to be presenting the all new Audi A4 sedan as the winning prize,” said Mr Joerg Hofmann, Managing Director, Audi Australia.

Ironically, Nossiter’s son Anthony, or ‘Nocka’ as he is known in the sailing fraternity, is a member of the Australian Sailing Team which is proudly sponsored by Audi, so he regularly drives Audi vehicles. Currently ranked ninth in the world in his nominated FINN class, Nocka will represent Australia at his third Olympic Games at Qingdao in Beijing in August.

Audi ambassador and Winter Olympic medallist Zali Steggall hosted the Prizegiving evening with Audi’s managing director, Joerg Hofmann, while Middle Harbour Yacht Club past Commodore Ian Box, presented the divisional trophies.
