ABYC’s dinghy sailors had to contend with strong winds, racing tides and Monday’s rain, though they managed to get in 8 races.
In the Junior Fleet Cameron Hill took 1st Place for Elsen Academy, Emma Lucas 3rd for Summerwood and Charl Hoogendoon 4th (Joy Homeschool). In the Oppie Fleet, Cameron gained 1st place, Luke Weddell 2nd and Simon Carthew 3rd. In the Senior Lasers Fleet Chad Bilsbury earned 1st Place and Jordan van Zyl 4th, while in Senior Other, Luke Weddell was 1st, Tamryn Bailes 3rd. This all resulted in ABYC sailors winning 1st Senior for Grey High and 2nd for Collegiate High. Full set of results on www.ryc.co.za
The scholars thoroughly enjoyed egging on the ‘old school’ sailors in their Sunday afternoon dash – you know it’s really windy when the Oppie (yes, an Oppie!) Tim Jones was sailing in was planning on the run! A big thank you to the parents who supported their youngsters over the three days and to the well prepared RYC race organisers.
