Australian Yachting Championships

The Australian Yachting Championships have wrapped up in Sydney, Australia, with Beau Geste Racing and Bushranger taking out the coveted IRC titles.

While there was a small fleet of 16 boats, congratulations must be given to all who took part in putting on a great spectacle of racing from Thursday in big southerly breezes, through to yesterday in a slowly building Easterly.

The Race Committee and organisers did a great job to get in all but one of the scheduled races given the weather outlook at the start of the regatta.

Beau Geste Racing again sailed a near impeccable regatta, kudos to the team who continue to set the bar in Australian waters in the Australian Yachting Championship. Bushranger were also excited to take their first win after a large investment, both time and money, in the past twelve months, nice to see hard work paying off.

Check out some of the action from the final day in my live coverage of the final race start sequences from on board the start boat below, or a selection of my best images over the regatta.
