RPAYC Team on the podium at the 2015 Etchells National Championship

The Hole Way skippered by Cameron Miles and representing RPAYC sailed brilliantly throughout the 2015 National Championship with intense competition for the top three places.  Up until the close of day four it looked like Gen XY skippered by Matthew Chew would win their first National Championship following their wins in several State Championships, however in the last race GenXY chose to tack on a different shift to the The Hole Way and Triad (skippered by John Bertram), resulting in Triad winning the Championship on count-back from The Hole Way.   You can’t get much closer competition than that!  Congratulations to the The Hole Way, Triad and Gen XY teams.\
