2019 Bartercard Sail Paradise Regatta at Southport Yacht Club - Overall

by Bronwen Hemmings 9 Jan 2019 02:00 PST 6-9 January 2019

After postponement due to lack of wind, racing commenced at 1400hrs in a 5-8 knot nor-easterly with the smallest swell seen all regatta on day four, the final day of the 2019 Bartercard Sail Paradise Series.

It all came down to the battle between Sunshine Coast Italian Job skippered by Michael Tom-Johnson and David Rose's Kerisma Gill who started the final day on equal points for the 2019 Queensland Australian Sailing Yachting Championship. Italian Job proved that they were the best team of the week, and finished on top by one point in the Queensland Australian Sailing Yachting Championship and are officially the Bartercard Sail Paradise 10th Anniversary Regatta winners.

Christopher Noyes' Watch Me, increased their lead on Lee Randal's Sea Fox by two points and Benjamin Meakin's Peggy to be named class winners of the Trailerable division.

David Chadkirk's Cyclone consolidated their three-day winning streak to win the PHS division 1 with Italian Job in second and Fareast 28R in third. Ocean Racer Chaser skippered by Southport Yacht Club's Michael Small knocked fellow Club member Graham Sherring's Desperado off the top into second with Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron Member Chris Sorensen into third in PHS Division 2.

Michael Tromp skippering Encore took first place in the Cruising Division, while Easy Day placed second and Pole Dancer third.

Having competed to the highest score ranking in both the 2019 Club Marine Pittwater to Paradise and Bartercard Sail Paradise, Southport Yacht Club's Ocean Gem skippered by David Hows is the proud winner of the overall 2019 Pittwater to Paradise Trophy.
