Results from stunning Sydney Harbour are coming in as the Australian racing season concludes, including a remarkable “Hat Trick” of race wins in three races by Tony Coleman’s unstoppable J/133 Euphoria.
In a wide range of conditions, from drifters to 40 knot gales, and winds from every quadrant of the compass, Euphoria showed a clean pair of heels over this amazing season against the cream of Sydney’s high-end, high-test racing fleet that includes several TP52s and past dual Rolex Sydney Hobart winners- Ichi Ban and Quest (ex Balance).
Euphoria’s wins included:
- 1st Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron Summer No. 1 Division Spinnaker Series- from January to April 2020
- 1st Combined Clubs No 1 Division with Spinnaker Winter Series (including, Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Middle Harbour Yacht Club, Sydney Amateurs and Royal Australian Navy Sailing Association and several other clubs participating in this popular series- from May to August 2020
- 1st Royal Australian Naval Sailing Association Winter Wednesday Series- from June to August 2020
Tony and his crew had the following to say about the boat and the series: “It has been a great start to our 2020 sailing year following our return from competing in the 75th Sydney Hobart race in December 2019 (Ed’s note- where they won their class with a sharp crew of International 14 ft skiff sailors). EUPHORIA, despite being 16 years old now, performed exceptionally well. We would like to thank all the clubs involved in keeping us all going with our sailing in these extraordinary times and also thank our competition who certainly kept us on our toes and pushed us all the way.”
