First time contestants Huanui College are this year’s winners, and a huge congratulations to Emma Wickham and Samantha McBeth for an excellent result.

The competition was fierce with four teams in close contention on the final evening but Huanui had featured strongly all week and when the points were tallied they were the clear leader. The second team was Bream Bay College with Cruz Flavell and Seyerus Miller putting on a good show.

A break in the rain this afternoon meant that parents and sail trainees were united at Marsden Cove Marina and Steve McMillan from sponsors Northpower presented the trophy to the two girls.  In doing so, he reminded them all that in supporting this challenge voyage, Northpower were supporting our young people and looking to them as our future.

Well done to all of you, you are all winners in our book. Thanks for being great contestants…. until next year!
