Sail-World.com : Munro and Moss take 420 Nationals at Evans Bay

Munro and Moss take 420 Nationals at Evans Bay

'Alex Munro and Brad Moss 1st overall - 2011 420 Nationals, Evans Bay'    Brent McKenzie
24 boats contested for the 420 Nationals in Evans Bay this year , with a nice spread of mature adult sailors, competitive youth sailors and new younger crews, which made for a lot of fun and a never ending pool game.

The contest was run over four days from Thursday the 10th of March to Sunday the 13th with a range of moderate conditions from around 8kts to approx 20kts , with both Southerly and Northerly directions. With the Wellington winds being quite legendary it was fantastic to get all 12 races completed. Congratulations to the Race Officer and Race team as well as the sailors themselves who waited out most of Friday for the pressure to drop and then get a couple of races in the evening.

Saturday brought Southerly of around 15-18kts which held for most of the day with four races being sailed, just leaving three races for the final day which were all completed within time with a Northerly of around 13-15kts.

1st - Alex Munro (Wakatere)/ Brad Moss (Murrays Bay) first youth Boys (19pts)
2nd - Verity Judge (Murrays Bay)/Gemma Jones (Murrays Bay)- first youth Girls (35pts)
3rd –Sam Mackay (Napier)/Oscar Rorvik (Tauranga)-36pts
4th-William Linkhorn (KYC)/ Andrew McKenzie (KYC)-41pts
5th-Charlotte Corston (Charteris Bay)/ Vicky Francis (Murrays Bay)-46 pts
6th- Erica Dawson (Murrays Bay)/Jamie Dawson (Murrays Bay)- 47pts
7th- Gye Simkin (New Plymouth)/Paul Moriarty (New Plymouth) – 57pts
8th- Phil Williams (Worser Bay)/ Rob Bryant (Worser Bay)- 78pts

Thanks to Evans Bay who did a great job on and off the water

It was fantastic to see the results of the effort from the Christchurch team over the last several months with the introduction and progress of several new crews, with quite a few new crews stepping in to their first nationals from the Wellington, New Plymouth and Auckland areas also.

All the sailors, both new and more experienced (old ?) mixed really well at the club, with the never ending pool game finally coming to an end, unfortunately we are not sure of the final winner as there was more than one team claiming ultimate victory.
