RCL KZN Regional Championship
Good Day Sailors, The RCL KZN Regional Championship were sailed over the weekend with a good fleet of 14 boats and varying conditions.
Saturday saw light south westerly wind with many lifts, shifts & big windless 'holes' to frustrate the sailors and race officials alike!
But at the end of the day 12 races had been completed and the results at that stage showed
Norrie Taylor RCL23 leading the fleet by a 'country' mile. With Des Fairbank RCL56 in 2nd place and Bjorn Hanssen RCL8 in 3rd place.
Sunday saw the predicted south westerly blowing again but this time a lot stronger but true to the Ponds form there were still shifts, lifts gusts and 'holes' to contend with.
Most of the fleet changed down to the storm sail before the first race got under and only changed, later in the afternoon, back to the B sail when the wind dropped off.
Joe Robbertse RCL 55 sailed particularly well and by the end of the day, and a total of 23 races, had managed to gain 2 places overall and finished up in 3rd place overall.
Des Fairbank RCL56 retained his 2nd position and Norrie Taylor was once again crowned RCL KZN Regional Champion for the 2nd year in a row and walked away with the well deserved gold medal.
Congratulations and well done Norrie Taylor.
