ETCHELLS 2018 AUSTRALASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

North Sails were well represented in Mooloolaba this week at the annual Etchells  mid- winter regatta both on and off the water. With 7 staff members were racing and Michael Coxon on water coaching and invited by Nic Douglas “Adventures of a Sailor Girl” to join her as co-commenter on the media boat.

The mid winters are always well supported and this year the added interest with 41 boats racing from four countries, numerous past class world champions, all driven by the upcoming Brisbane hosted Etchells World Championships in November.

Each of the 7 individual heat winners and the top 15 in the regatta chose North Sails exclusively.

North Sails continued their Etchells class support as a regatta sponsor donating a jib that was drawn from a hat at the presentation and won by class stalwart Steve O’Rouke, a popular win.

The Cure – Happy in their win on a countback

The 3 days offshore racing did not disappoint starting in a challenging left over sea state in medium airs with both the sea and wind backing off over the course of the event. Mooloolaba is renowned for being a challenging tactical coarse and again lived up to expectations with a different winner in each of the 7 races and ended with “The Cure” and “Crue Jane” finishing on top with equal points and Dave Clark and his “The Cure” team taking out the 2018 Australasian Championships on a count back.  

For these competing crews plus a similar additional number, together with North Sails, the focus shall now be on the upcoming Worlds to be held off Brisbane in a few months.
