Britain's Archie Massey and his crew Dan Wilsdon were presented tonight (11 January) with the CST Composites International 14 Class World Championship 2010 trophy and the Australian Championship trophy at the Opera Points Events marquee, at the tip of Bennelong Point under the famous 'sails' of the Sydney Opera House.

Yachting Australia President Andrew Plympton presented the prestigeous trophy to Massey and Wilsdon at the event which was supported by Wild Oates Wines.

Plymton paid tribute to Massey and Wilsdon who dominated the regatta and did not need to sail today's final race.

Australian i14 class president Stewart Vickery said Massey and Wilsdon were worthy winners of the trophy that had a heritage dating back to the 1930s.

'The class is priveliged to have a champion such as Massey and his crew Dan Wilsdon. They were well prepared, had great teamwork and tactics, and sailed a brilliant series.

'Congratulations to both of them in winning the title in a competitive fleet that totaled 109 boats representing England, Canada, Japan, Germany, USA and Australia.

'The Australian class was proud to stage this event in the finest harbour in the world and our gratitude also extends to our race officer and former national champion Peter Moor who put on excellent courses from the base at Manly 16ft Skiff Sailing Club.'

The presentation night was attended by more than 300 people who got to enjoy the sun setting through the Harbour Bridge.

Campbell MacLeod, National Sales Manager, Robert Oatley Vineyards said: 'We’re really pleased to support the Sydney World Championships presentation dinner tonight as Wild Oats Wines have much in common with International 14 sailing.

'Our contemporary range of wines share the Wild Oats name with Bob Oatley’s 100ft super maxi and the essence of innovation runs through our winemaking, the yacht and of course, the exciting 14s. Congratulations to all the Sydney Worlds 2010 competitors.'

The International 14 is one of the oldest racing classes in the world and has remained at the forefront of open boat sailing due to its class rules that encourage restricted experimentation. The next world championship will be held in Weymouth, England.


Massey won the Worlds as a British sailor and member of Itchenor Sailing Club and the Australian title as a resident of Sydney and member at Woollahra Sailing Club.
