2013 Aust Moth Nationals at Wangi

I posted this on but due to web link stuff I do not understand it did not appear on I hope by posting it here the links might get picked up and be seen by anyone who missed them.

We have had 15 races, 4 on each  two days, there are a lot of tired sailors.
The regatta has been dominated an won with a day to spare by NZ Peter Burling. He becomes the first international to win an AUS nationals regatta and the first Aust Open Champion. Scott Babbage has been second yet again but this time at least he becomes the Australian Champion as first Austalian.

The big crowd of volunteers from Wangi ASC have done a great job, the weather has been very good and the winds generous.
Next year we venture to Yepoon, with an AUS worlds in 2015 at a venue yet to be determined, Perth, Sorrento and Woollahra are bidding.
Thanks to ZHIK for the three big boxes of prizes, and to CST Composites who funded the excellent video coverage from Beau Outterdidge. There are other families involved at Wangi, you just do not know all their names.
The final results and the AGM are posted under National Documents:

Congratulations to Peter Burling (Aust Open Champion) and Scott Babbage (Aust National Champion)
