2016 MacIntyre Cup Kingston Beach Sailing Club 3rd and 4th December 2016
The weather gods shone favourably on us at Kingston Beach for the MacIntyre Cup which was held over the weekend of 3rd and 4th December. (Except perhaps on Saturday morning which was pleasant but too shifty and light to get in any racing.)
PRO David Graney did a fantastic job to get in 3 races on Saturday afternoon and 5 on Sunday before 2pm.
As usual, the cream rises to the top, and Jess Andrewartha (nee Atherton) with her father Grant crewing, won convincingly (although they did have one 3rd).
The MacIntyre Cup is a Handicap Regatta and First Place on Handicap went to Ya Ya Maceddie and Lew Ottoway (Deviot SC/Scotch Oakburn) who also took out First Youth.
2nd on Handicap was Zara Broomby and Johanna Cameron (Deviot SC/Scotch Oakburn), and 3rd on Handicap Loki and Pippa Bird.
Loki and Pippa (KBSC), also won the 1st Junior, with Pippa taking out the Rookie Crew award as well.
Many thanks are extended to the team of helpers both on and off the water. Without you, we couldn’t run the event.
