Congratulations to Team Harken, winning the Dust Buster Regatta

Congratulations to Team Harken, winning the Dust Buster Regatta!

Team Harken Skippered by Grant Pellew, managed to find his form today on the second and final day of the series. After sitting in 6th place after day 1, Grant and his team of Traks Gordon, Ollie Gordon, Natasha Bryant & Clare Costanzo sailed an almost faultless day with a 1,5,1,1,1 score card to take boat of the day for day two, and the series win.

Commenting on the dock shortly after racing, Pellew took a while to compose himself as the emotions of the day sunk in "What a great regatta! The regatta delivered what it promised, great competition and fun windward leeward sprints. It's great, we had 5 races today, and now it is 1100am and I have the rest of the day to spend with my daughter. I think this format in winter has a lot of merit and we look forward to the next regatta."

Also having a better second day on the water was Nancy Ferguson, climbing from 7th place up into 2nd Place overall.

The Dust Buster Regatta was run over two Sunday Mornings, with all of the RPAYC Eight Elliott 7's charted out and sailed by Members and their friends.
There was also other sportsboats who raced alongside the E7's in a sportsboat division. Matt Crawford in his Melges 20 "Big Booty" took the win, beating an assortment of sports boats/keelboat which included vipers and a young 88

A big thankyou to the Volunteer race committee who did a great job setting a track in shifty conditions.
Results are included in this post.
