With the Rugby World Cup final adding an extra layer of excitement to the atmosphere, the stage was set for some intense sailing action.
Navigating the challenges of this small yet demanding lake, Anthony and his team showcased their exceptional skills on the water. The Noelex 22′ named Aqua Flyte, though compact at 6.7 meters, proved to be a formidable contender, especially when met with favorable winds that led them to victory on day one.
Day two brought its own set of unique challenges, following a Rugby World Cup final that kept fans on the edge of their seats. With winds ranging from 15-20 knots and dramatic 30-degree shifts, the competition intensified. The top boats battled fiercely, with each one taking a turn at the front. In the end, Anthony’s team secured two more wins, solidifying their claim to the series win and the prestigious N22 North Islands Trophy.
What truly made this weekend special for Anthony was the opportunity to share the racecourse with both his Dad and his son. While the intense moments may have elicited some colorful language, it undoubtedly added an extra layer of camaraderie and family bonding to an already fantastic weekend away.
Congratulations Anthony on this well-deserved triumph, a second time!
