After having to postpone the Sanders Cup due to gale force winds in December, again Windy Wellington lived up to its name and made it challenging for the organisers to get a contest in.
The Kingham Trophy was held early Saturday morning in light Southerlies. Even though OA and FDSM had the lead for a while, Trailblazer claimed the lead on the last downwind leg to finally claim this elusive prize.
After waiting for the Northerly to fill in for a while, the Sanders Cup was held in a building breeze with very close racing and mixed results.
In the end, Manawatu dominated over East Coast, who were the only team to put two wins on the board. Northland came third and sported a win in the last race.
