Milly Bennett wins the 2017 Gwen Slade Regatta

Light, shifty breezes ranging from the north back to the south saw six Etchells compete on Saturday 29 April in two windward/leeward sprint races for the 37th Gwen Slade Ladies Etchells trophy.

The Gwen Slade regatta is a one design, Etchells regatta with women at the helm of each boat.  The regatta started in 1981 by Russell Slade in honour of his wife Gwen, and to encourage women sailors.

This year, Milly Bennett and her team, sailing in Commodore Ian Audsley’s Kalika III sailed with precision in the challenging conditions to win two out of the three races to take out the 2017 Gwen Slade Regatta for the second time. Milly also won the 2015 Gwen Slade Regatta in Kalika II

Katie Pellew and her team which included Nina Curtis sailing in Seawings had a good event however the team didn’t get the win in the last two races but performed strongly enough to take 2nd place overall.

3rd place went to Hannah Lanz and her team with Head Coach Tom Spithill who did very well against more experienced competition.

The conditions were very tough to navigate through Pittwater but on a positive note the competitors enjoy some autumn sun. Congratulations to all those who competed and a big thanks to all the Race Officials.

Results are as follows;

1st – Kalika 3 - Milly Bennett

2nd – Seawings – Katie Pellew

3rd – PAM – Hannah Lanz

4th – Whisper – Clare Costanzo

5th – Arlotta – Annie Taylor

6th – Miramar – Prue Bennett
