Canterbury Zephyr Champs Races 1 and 2 Report from Graeme Hore

Attached are the results for Races 1 and 2 of the Canterbury Zephyr Champs which were sailed at Pleasant Point Yacht Club on Saturday 6 October in strong NE conditions.

The Waimak was well represented by Daniel Smith, Hannes Hille, Bill Howard, Ron Mackie, Alex Aitken, and Graeme Hore and both races were won by Daniel
 who gets our congratulations. Congratulations also go to Hannes for a 3rd and a 4th in what were extremely difficult conditions and to Bill for surviving Race 1.

The other three (Ron, Alex and myself) either made it to the first mark in Race 1 and capsized, or decided this wasn't for me and set off for home.

We are hopeful for better conditions when the waimak hosts us on the 18th November.
