2018 Video Etchells Worlds Wrap Up

The 2018 Etchells World Championship based out of Brisbane’s Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron got a full compliment of nine races in for the 94-boat armada that sailed on Moreton Bay.

Well done to all who attended, and the many, many Volunteers that it made it all possible. A big shout out to Ross and Kevin Wilson (IROs) for making the on water racing as good as it was in trying conditions, which meant there was a lot of waiting… David irvine’s entire team delivered off the water, as well, and this had the competitors all smiling.

This wrap up video from Mitch Pearson/SurfSailKite includes live action and drone footage, along with interviews I conducted with various parties, including new World Champion, Martin Hill.
