Congratulations to Melinda Henshaw, Joy Adams, Wendy Faulkner, Linda Rae, Celia Snedden, Helen Evans, and Fiona Ryder winners of the 2015 NZ Women's Keelboat National Championship with 11 points! It was a tough regatta with only three points separating first from third. In second Place the 2013 National Champ Karleen Dixon with Jenny Egnot, Sara Tucker, Rebecca Hornell, Bridgette Suckling, Keryn McMaster and Julie Kidman were on 12 points with 2 firsts, 2 seconds and 2 thirds dropping a 4th as well as Henshaw and Miranda Powrie. Miranda and her crew will be dissapointed after being top of the table yesterday! Powrie and crew are third on 13 points. Winning the final race of the regatta was Sam Macky-Dunn, who only then managed to get into the top three. Sam and her crew of Briar Macky, Merran Walbridge-Perrow, Sarah Ell, Anna Molloy and Robin Marsh will be stoked to have the 1st... Finally! It was a dissapointing regatta for the Australians - Margaret Neeson and crew Margaret Rowe, Luise Cotter, Tracey and Veronica DePoi Sue Neales and Chelsea Taylor who have travelled from the Royal Brighton Yacht Club in Melbourne to compete. We enjoyed having them as part of the regatta and hope they have happy memories, made some new friends and enjoyed the racing!

Well done to all our great crews!
