Harken Young 88 Nationals: Team NZ crews back to regain title

'Young 88 - 2014 Jack Tar Regatta, Day 1'    Ivor Wilkins/Offshore Images    Click Here to view large photo

The Young 88’s reputation for hard but fair and fun racing has brought America's Cup sailor Jeremy Lomas back to one hull this weekend. He is skipper of Flash Gordon with some well know teammates including Dean Barker and James Dagg as crew.

Mike Sanderson, Flash Gordon's part owner, usual skipper and 2013 national champ is trading his place for some prior mini maxi commitments and disappointed to be missing out on this marquee event.

Lomas won the event in 2010 and this year will be up against Chris Steele and the gun RNZYS Youth Training Programme crew on Abracadabra. The top ‘owner drivers’ Lincoln Fraser on Dangerzone, Zane Gifford on Raging Hormones and Nathan Williams on Slipstream III will also be tough to beat.

The nineteen boat fleet will be starting racing at 1000hrs Saturday and Sunday and completing up to five windward leeward races each day in the open waters between the East Coast Bays and Rangitoto.

The event web site is being run by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and technology willing includes live updates and race by race results. To follow all the action over the weekend get out to the A buoy outside Rangitoto or for the online event page click here
