The 2011 North Island Paper Tiger Championships were hosted during the last weekend of February at Stump Bay, Lake Taupo by the Turangi Yacht and Power Boat club.

Rowdy (Ryan) Leatham from New Plymouth took his first Paper Tiger North Island title in a very close fought contest between himself, and class stalwarts (and mentors) Glenn Syman and John Thomson from Wellington.

After a weekend competition and seven races the top three places were separated by minimal points no one knowing the final results until they were announced at Prize Giving.

The weekend saw typical Turangi conditions with weather conditions in the 6 -10 knot range (and beautiful sunshine) ensuring that plenty of excitement and place changes were seen with some incredibly tight racing throughout the entire fleet.

Day one saw three races completed with three separate race winners including Glenn Syman, Hayden Percy (Napier) and Rowdy Leatham.

Day two saw another four races completed with Grant Allen (Wanganui) taking a victory with Hayden Percy picking up another race, while Rowdy picked up two more.

Overall racing was tight across the fleet with no sailor managing the finish in the top ten in all races.

The sight of nearly 40 Paper Tigers racing on Lake Taupo was really impressive, and sure to continue when the final round of the North Island Grand Prix series takes place at the Mighty River Power Regatta hosted by the Lake Taupo Yacht Club on 12-13 March. The series is still wide open for up to six sailors to claim in the final regatta.

Overall Results include:
1st Rowdy Leatham PT 821 Flyer New Plymouth Yacht Club
2nd Glenn Syman PT 3009 Unplugged Evans Bay Yacht & Motor Boat Club
3rd John Thomson PT 3003 Crocodile Rock Evans Bay Yacht & Motor Boat Club
