Congratulations to Team Tiger, representing the RPAYC, on winning the Pacific Keelboat Challenge at the Jack Tar Auckland Regatta

After 3 days of competitive tit-for-tat racing across 12 races in the Pacific Keelboat Challenge, defending Champion Chris Way secured himself back to back titles after a solid display in breezy conditions today. Way, from the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club in Australia, took out the trans-Tasman bragging rights and managed to claim 4 race wins out of 5 today, propelling him to an unassailable 10 point lead over the next best team. Local RNZYS skipper Matt Bouzaid had 5 second place finishes today, and after being in 3rd after two days racing, managed to move up the leader board and claim 2nd overall – a great reward for some very consistent MRX sailing. Fellow RNZYS skipper Tom Macky started the day well claiming the gun in the first race, but 4 subsequent 3rd place finishes in the final races weren't quite enough for him to cement the 2nd spot, slipping back to 3rd overall for the regatta. Perth's Paul King finished 4th, with Euan Little (RNZYS), Meridy Boyd-Clarke (RNZYS) and Queensland's Chris Morgan rounding out the fleet in that order.
