Sail-World.com : Big winds for Farr 727 Nationals, Platu and Elliott 5.9 Aucklands

Big winds for Farr 727 Nationals, Platu and Elliott 5.9 Aucklands

Last weekend, May 9 and 10, the Royal Akarana Yacht Club hosted the Elliott 5.9 and Platu 25 Auckland Championships, and the Farr 727 Nationals with eight races held over two days.

The weather forecast kept changing throughout the week leading up to the event, with 25 – 35 knots expected, the fleets were pleasantly surprised to get out on the water with no more than 25 knot gusts during the whole day.

However the gusty squalls that came through still gave most boats a hard time, with plenty of wipe outs across all three fleets.

After day one the damage tally was at two broken booms, one broken spinnaker pole, one broken forestay, one broken side stay and a few ripped sails and blocks. And this was mostly in the Elliott and Farr 727 fleet, the Platu 25’s hardly suffered at all in the heavier breezes.

Day two proved to be lighter winds, once again well below the forecast.

In the Elliott fleet Cam Horne and his crew on Slam Dunk (the 2009 National Champions) once again proved to be unbeatable, and took home the Auckland Championship trophy. Voodoo was second with new crew Craig Coulam on the helm and Sub 60 in third with Stu Clarke helming, despite having a man over board in the last race of Saturday giving them a DNF.

The Platu fleet 2009 Auckland Champions were Brett Neil and his crew on White Cloud, 2 points clear of National Champions Simon Dickey on Oceanbridge who were second, with Andrew Brown and Team Motley Crew in third.

In the Farr 727 fleet on line Leigh Miller and his crew on Mumbo Jumbo took out the series, and on handicap Damon McLachlan and crew on The Source won the National Title, with Overdraft (Brad Davies) in second, and a well sailed regatta by Mumbo Jumbo (Leigh Miller) in third place overall. Youngest skipper in the fleet, 12 year old Edwin DeLaat finished 7th overall in the nine boat fleet after scoring a DNF and two DNS placings in the strong winds on Saturday when five races were sailed. His best place was a very creditable third in Race 6.
