The South Pacific Interdominion Championship Regatta is held alternatively in New Zealand and Australia

And the winner of the 2018 South Pacific and NZ National Championships is…

After nine races, Windrush and Phlipnhel were tied on points, so it all came down to the last race.

 

In the end, a fourth place was enough for Phil McNeil to retain the title, a special achievement as he had to replace his crew Craig Gilberd, who had an accident the night before, with his daughter Holly. It makes Holly the first female to (co-)win the South Pacifics since the Fiji edition in 1977.

Many thanks to everyone who made this a thoroughly enjoyable contest: The wonderful volunteers of the Takapuna Boating Club, the professional race officials who got all the races away despite challenging conditions, the competitors arriving from near and far, their support crew, and everyone who visited us in person or virtually!
