Etchells shine in RSYS Varuna Trophy

 


Ten champion yachts came together to challenge for the Varuna Trophy. This challenge is by invitation only and the invitees are the top place getters in RSYS various classes and divisions. This makes for very exciting and competitive racing.  

Winds on Saturday 14 April were strong and shifty, which made racing demanding but still a lot of fun, according to the sailors.

The winner of the 2018 Varuna Trophy is the RSYS flagged Etchells Roué skippered by Mike Morris and crewed by David Brittain on mainsheet and bowman Matthew Seidel.

“This is a wonderful way to complete the season” said the winner Mike. When asked about his race strategy, he said it was quite simple: "Get in front of Malcolm Shaw and stay there!”  Congratulations to all on Roué for a great victory.
 
Second place went to another RSYS boat, the Sydney 60, aptly named Sydney and skippered by David Kellett and Charles Curran. The third placed yacht was another Etchells: Plan A skippered by Andrew Patterson and sailing under the CYCA burgee. Congratulations to all.

A huge thank you to all competing champion yachts and we are looking forward to even greater numbers next year.
