1st PLACE FOR MHYC - NSW OPTIMIST TEAMS RACING Sunday 17th November
Last Sunday I was very lucky to be a team member of the MHYC Open optimist teams racing squad along with Jacob Marks, Will Wilkinson and Joel Beashel at the NSW Teams Racing Championships. Originally this event was to be run at Toronto however there was a last minute change to Rose Bay hosted by Cranbrook. The MHYC team had been looking forward to this event for some time and we were very happy to come home with the 1st place trophy and medals. We had a full-on day of racing in very good conditions. There were 6 open teams and 3 intermediate teams. We completed in two full round robins, and only lost 1 of our 18 races. Teams Racing is very different to Fleet Racing, you have to work together to make sure you finish in the best combination. We had loads of training leading up to the event and held a few strategy sessions. It was a great day and the team cant wait for next years competition to retain the title.
