The Middle Harbour 16’s Juniors have started their season. Last Sunday the Flying 11 fleet took part in the first round of the Port Jackson Challenge for Flying 11’s. MH16SC launched a fleet of five boats to join 22 others from various Harbour and Pittwater based clubs.
In challenging gusty Westerly conditions in Sydney Harbour Sound, a spirited outing by all our junior reps saw Peggy Stanbury and Avril Richardson in 1359 Kick It ‘n’ Rip It lead the Skiffies boats over the line in 14th position. A great result for a crew in their first year of Flying 11s.
With 3 more rounds of this regatta to come there will be some intense racing between our boats to claim club placing.
There are plenty more photos of the day’s racing at this LINK
Well done to our young sailors!
