Leith Mossman - an inspiration to us all!
Leith Mossman packed more into her 45 years than most of us would in a lifetime. An avid sailor, she raced on many yachts in Auckland, including Krasna (Townsen 36), The V Team (Farr 1020), Rhythm (S&S 45) to Fiji, Brighstone - Sydney-Hobart, Share Delight and Waiwera Naturally Hot (Mumm 30). Leith was always full of enthusiam and fun, whether racing with the boys, with the girls, match racing, fleet racing or offshore - an inspiration to us all. Unfortunately she lost her battle with breast cancer in 1998.
The Leith Mossman Memorial tray was donated to the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron by the New Zealand Womens Yachting Trust in 2000 in memory of our friend Leith. The Trophy is the principal prize for the annual New Zealand Womens Match Racing Championships held by the RNZYS.
