Efforts pay off for title winners after regatta

YESTERDAY was a proud day for those who came away with the honours after competing all week in the National Trailerable Multihull Regatta, which was hosted by the Hervey Bay Boat Club Yacht Squadron.

Three different divisions competed in the titles.

Division one included catamarans and trimarans while division two was mainly made up of Corsair trimarans.

Four Seawind yachts competed in division three.

Despite spirited competition from Hervey Bay sailor Daryl Dorsett, Tony Considine was able to hold on to win the division one national title.

The competition was equally close in division two.

Intrigue, sailed by Peter Hackett, won the title in that division after a count back was conducted.

Multihull Yacht Sales, sailed by Peter Day, and Trinket, sailed by Bob Critchley, came equal first with Hackett after all three competitors registered two wins over the course of the week.

But Hackett, with better overall results, came away with the title after the final count back

In division three John Dowling, sailing Turning Point, was the overall winner.

An official presentation night was held for the sailors at Hervey Bay Boat Club last night.
