GOLD GOLD GOLD!

It's been an awesome week for RAYC sailors across a variety of different regattas with winners announced in the Bay of Islands, Miami and Napier.

Kicking off the winning streak was Simon Manning and his RAYC team on Provincial Cowboy won GOLD in both the General and PHRF handicap divisions at Bay of Islands Sailing Week. Followed then by Alex Maloney & Molly Meech, sailing the Olympic Class 49erFX who won GOLD at the Sailing World Cup in Miami. Finally, it was Murray Gilbert & Jonathan Burgess who took the GOLD at the Flying 15 National Championship in Napier.

RAYC sailors also competed at the Auckland Championship at Maraetai in the Optimist Fleet with great results.

Congratulations to all our sailors who are representing us locally and around the world. Be sure to keep in touch so we can share your success with fellow members. Email your results and reports to suellen@rayc.co.nz
