Young Laser sailors meet Masters in Collinson FX Freshwater regatta

by Garth Briden on 22 May 2011
Leg 1 race 3 away - 2011 Collinson FX North Shore Freshwater Championships Colin Preston

Shifty breezes let Masters get in amongst the young guns of Laser sailing. Fifty eight sailors turned out for the 2011 Collinson FX North Shore Freshwater Laser Championships event raced on Lake Pupuke over the weekend 21-22 May.

The seven-race series was concluded in winds of six to twelve knots, continually oscillating from 155' thru 210'.

The results show fortunes were mixed for both our Olympic hopefuls and the older sailors who should perhaps know better!?!
