The final round (of four) of the Winter Ice Breaker Series was held on Sunday with 50 competitors braving the chilly conditions on Pittwater across nine divisions. The Series is a popular event attracting competitors from across NSW.
Notable RPAYC performances included Walter Tuite’s gong in Optimist Intermediate Fleet. Markus Sampson also put in a stellar performance, placing third in the series, an impressive debut in Intermediate fleet. Markus will be one to watch this summer season!
All three laser classes saw fantastic performances from RPAYC members as well, most notably, Thomas Skinners hat-trick on Sunday and subsequent first place in the series point score in the Laser 4.7 class. The radial class saw tight racing with only 8 points separating 1st and 2nd place with Antony Hawke taking out first place overall.
