On Sunday 21st Sailability Auckland held its annual Waller Cup regatta. Held in Shoal Bay eleven boats and sixteen sailors were competing in the Liberty and 303 yachts. Five back to back races were run with close and exciting racing, even the weather turned out ideal with a light 6-10 knot cool southerly breeze and sunshine.
Four young RAYC sailors joined the fleet to partner up in the 303 two person class. This added a new level of fun and excitement for the Sailability sailors and meanwhile RAYC members were also helping out with race management and on safety boats.
RAYC sailors Lukas Gill and Poppy Hoskin came away with the 303 Title, with Rueben and Mai in Second place. Another RAYC member Helena Horswell won the Liberty title and the Waller Cup for 2017.
