Bushranger wins 2017 Australian Yachting Championship IRC & ORCi Div B

Congratulations to Bushranger, representing RPAYC, in winning  the 2017 Australian Yachting Championship IRC & ORCi Div B .
 
‘Bushranger’ went into the final day with a solid lead in IRC and ORCi to close rivals ‘Justadash’ and ‘Next’ but after two bullets in ORCi and a win in IRC they finished the regatta with a near 10 point lead in both ratings. RPAYC Member, Gerry Hatton, owner of ‘Bushranger’, explained their win,
 
“I believe there are two key elements in doing well in IRC; they are your crew and your sails. We like to build a crew up and have them ‘learn on the go’, this way they’ve committed to the team and there’s a level of trust between us all built over a number of years. We also have good sails for IRC which helps with our ratings. We were surprised with how well we went in the passage races and very happy with our win overall. We’ll be looking to come to Sandringham Yacht Club for next year’s event.”
