In the first major all Australian 2K event, teams from all over Australia travelled to Hobart Tasmania for some amazing sailing. Included in the line up was Sorrento who had competed successfully at the first Global Championships held at the New York Yacht Club in 2018. Racing in Elliot 6’s in near perfect team racing conditions the Race Officer managed three round robins which placed the two Tasmanian teams at the top. With RYCT2 the winner of the Round Robin stage .
Now the finals, RYCT 1 not dampened by their loss in the round robins come back strongly to take the first race with a convincing 1-2 win. RYCT 2 clearly knocked back, but resolute return with a resounding 1-2 to level the score… to the final race… all to play for and it is RYCT 1 skippers Nick Jones and Chris (George) Jones who cross the line in a glorious 1-2 to be the first ever Australian 2K Champions.
Looking forward to a lot more 2K action in Australia.
