South Africans take out the Hobie® 16 Masters Class Final

 by 

In contrast to the past weeks racing, today turned on overcast skies with light rain, however a freshening SSE of 16-18 knots coming off shore over Vincentia delivered some smooth sailing.

The first race of the day got off to an early start with race officer John (Hoop) Hooper setting the course to 1GO at 0.9 nautical miles and saw Fijian competitors John Philp and Douglas Edwards get to the A mark first. They were passed on the first down wind leg by previous, multiple World Champion Blaine Dodds and daughter Roxanne Dodds from South Africa who continued to hold the lead all the way to the finish.
