Sydney 38 NSW Championships 2016

Beth Morley was out on the water to capture the Sydney 38s on the weekend. Next’ has been crowned the winner of the Sydney 38 NSW Championships at Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club today following two days of close racing between seven boat entries.

The CYCA yacht, part-owned by skipper Phil Tomkins was named the official winner after some very close racing and strong wind conditions which saw racing postponed until just after 2pm yesterday for the start of the regatta.

Day 1 racing on Saturday was held inshore at Pittwater and consisted of three windward / leeward races with Sunday’s Day 2 held offshore also with three races.
