Sail-World.com : MYC Helly Hansen Women's Challenge
MYC Helly Hansen Women's Challenge


'Helly Hansen Women’s Challenge 2013'    Crosbie Lorimer

Sunday 24 March 2013, 28 yachts and seven Access dinghies turned out for the Manly Yacht Club Helly Hansen Women's Challenge for some champagne sailing (figuratively and later literally)! Entries ranged from the current National Farr 40 Champion to a Marauder 24 and racing was on The Sound of Sydney Harbour over two divisions in two classes (all female crew and female helm).

In the All Female Crew Div 1, Jenny Danks on Local Hero (Sydney 36) took the handicap win ahead of Nikki Stone on Calibre (Sydney 38) who took line honours. Jan Bartel on Esprit (Archambault 32) completed the podium places. In All Female Crew Div 2, Anni Browning on Cheshire Cat (Catalina 30) won on handicap against fastest on the water Sorell Lambie in Melody (Swanson Dart).

Michelle Belgorno took Transfusion (Farr 40) to both the line honours and handicap win in Div 1 of the Female Helm class (with an almost all female crew) ahead of Louise Tillet on Devil's Lair (Mount Gay 30) and Dominique Wynn on Copernicus (Radford 12). In Div 2, Cathy Kinsella's Torquil (Adam's 10 modified) also took out both honours ahead of Nicole Butcher on Azlan (Azuree 33) and Marike Koppenol on Ratty Tooey (Northshore 340).

In the combined results, the All Female Crews took out second (Local Hero) and fourth (Calibre) in division 1 and third (Cheshire Cat) and fifth (Melody) in division 2.

Special mention should also go to the girls from Calibre who sailed the 20nm from Port Hacking in the morning, raced and then sailed back home Sunday night.
