David Clark and his crew on Fifteen have held onto their overnight lead in the 2010 Etchells New South Wales Championship to win after wrapping up the three day series with two races today.

After a delayed start, which held the fleet onshore for two hours, the race committee set the race course just inside Sydney Harbour heads in the Sound.

The top two boats from the first two days of racing were separated by one point and the two races held today meant competitors were able to drop their worst result. The breeze settled from a South East direction at 10 knots as the fleet made up of teams from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia lined up.

After accepting the winners tropy this after Clark said 'We’ve had a great event and being able to get offshore to the track were the 2012 worlds will be raced has been very important to us. I’ve sailed with my crew for the last two years and we are preparing for 2012 here in Sydney. We’ve learnt that at this time of year we need to be prepared for all weather conditions. Our plan was to do well in this event so we have managed that, we like to chip away up the middle of the fleet and I think the fact that we were able to be consistent in the top five places in most races helped'.

Tom King’s Iron Lotus has sailed a consistent regatta with only one race result out of the top ten and this consistency helped King’s team finish second overall.

'We really enjoyed the racing today in the harbour and we had a bit of luck today and managed to finish on a good note winning one of the races today. Fifteen and Dave’s team are definitely the boat of the regatta they sailed a great series and deserved to win. It’s been great to have so many boats racing and interstate teams travelling to compete in a strong class', commented King.

Dual Laser World Champion and Beijing Olympian Tom Slingsby, who is back steering an Etchells after a 12 month hiatus, completed the podium of overall places finishing in third with the team on Steampacket 7 and winning the last race of the series earlier this afternoon.

Slingsby, who sails with another one Design class the Farr 40’s, remarked, 'It’s been great to sail with Bruce and Guddo for this event. It’s been tricky and challenging conditions and I finally figured out how to steer a Etchells again by the end of the regatta. Steering the boat for this event has been very beneficial and I am returning to my usual boat with John Bertrand for the Etchells Worlds in Ireland later this year'.
