On saturday we had our famous match racing!!!!
THE WESTPARK/HOBSONVILLE POINT CHANDLERY MATCH RACING REGATTA
 in conjunction with Hobsonville  Yacht Club 22 March 2014, 10.00 start
 
THIS YEAR THE PRIZES WERE EVEN BIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Craig Torckler kindly contribute over $1000 dollars worth of prizes from top brands through out the marine industry.

The match racing was once again a very popular day with eight teams entered and could not have been done without our sponsors Craig & Tanya Torckler. 

And also TREVOR HIGGINS will be the Sailing Officer for the day with help from Gary Matthews and friends, Bruce & Hilton who let us use Morning Glory as the committee boat.  Craig Tockler and Trevor May for loaning their boats for the racing. Raynor and Eric who were the umpires for the day, and also Jonathan & Denis who took crews to and from the boats. Jos Ford who was our film maker & photographer for the day.  Not forgetting Blair who once again organised the whole day!
 
There are eight teams entered!!!!!
  • Force Eight
  • Pants Off!!
  • Eye Spy
  • The Unsatisfied Ladies
  • Far Canal
  • Retail Reprobates
  • Urban Cowboy
  • Stranger
There was not much wind for the racing which meant it was a tricky day on the water, but this did not stop our teams being competitive... and the semi finals and finals kept the umpires busy. 

However there could be only one winner - congratulations to Colin Rickett and his team "Urban Cowboy"

 The top four teams were:

1st Urban Cowboy
2nd Eye Spy
3rd Pants off!!
4th Far Canals

All in all it was a great day at HYC with close competitive sailing, superb organisation and a fun day for everyone involved.
