3rd in Sydney - John Messenger Women's Match Race
Day 1 of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia's (CYCA) John Messenger Women's Match Race Regatta concluded with a 3 way tie at the top. We were tied with Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club’s Juliet Costanzo and Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s India Howard all with 9 wins in an unbreakable scenario.
Day two we raced the CYCA team helmed by India Howard in the semi finals, unfortunately losing in the deciding match with both teams having a win on the scoreboard. We then went on to a mate verse mate petite final against our fellow RNZYS team helmed by Emma Hyde. Pressure was on to shake a penalty in the final race, but we managed to pull through, wrapping up the petites 2-0 to us. A huge thank you to the CYCA for putting on a great event, we can't think of a better way to spend the weekend! Another great event that has brought to light our team's strengths and outline areas we can continue to improve. Congratulations to India and her team for taking out the event.
We also want to thank Brittany Clark for joining our team again. She seems to be a lucky charm :)
