'We had a fantastic regatta and I’m pretty happy to be the revived Champion of Champions but definitely couldn’t have done it without my awesome crew,' said Horne.

'It’s so good to be back at RAYC racing and although the Platus are a bit of a handful, the challenge was great.

'Everything about this regatta really made it a brilliant event. The breakfasts and huge crew lunch packs as well as the dinners and entertainment. It was awesome to socialise with all the crews before and after racing.

'We really hope to be back next year representing the Elliott 5.9 class again!' continued Horne.

Hot on their tails finishing second was team Flying Fifteen skippered by the 1991 Champion of Champions Craig Coulam with the crew Cody Banks, Sally Garrett, Roger Hall and Chris Field.

Wrapping up the podium places with third was team Young 88 skippered by Samantha Osbourne with a crew of Ross Masters, Grant Turnbull, Phil Yuill and John Kensington.

The teams were engaged at RAYC for the duration of the event and were the best fed sailors in Auckland! The entry included breakfast, lunch packs and dinner for the three days with entertainment on Saturday night in the club house.
