2021 NZTYA New Zealand Championships

The 2021 NZTYA  Southern Sails trailer yacht nationals were held in Nelson hosted by the Tasman Bay Cruising Club January 22nd to 24th.

 Race officer Paul Davies did a fantastic job setting great courses over the weekend and we had some great fair sailing amongst the fleet.

Tasman Bay  provided some excellent sailing conditions from 8 to 15 kts over the weekend and the club were excellent hosts with the band on Saturday night being a highlight.

Overspray skippered by Shane Smith sailed a excellent  regatta winning every race and taking A Division from Eagle skippered by Mark Howard and Alien skippered by Matt Vining in his first regatta and race in his new boat.  The battle for 2nd and 3rd was strong between Eagle, Alien and Unleashed.

Bill Hall on his Noelex 22 sailed very well to win every race and take the regatta win .

Many thanks to everybody who came to this great regatta and a big thanks to Gareth from Southern Sails for sponsoring the regatta.
