Torrin Bright wins Sail Auckland

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Oceanbridge Sail Auckland 2013 came to a roaring conclusion, with strong winds again pushing the sailors to their physical limits on Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.

On the final day of Kiteboard racing, Tauranga’s Torrin Bright extended his lead on the fleet of 20 riders, extending his chain to six race wins in a row. Best women was Justina Sellers (NZL), finishing 12th in the open fleet.

Local board sailing coach Dave Robertson took the early regatta lead on day one, but Torrin proved to be unstoppable in the high winds of the final two days, when kiteboards where one of the few classes able to sail at all. Matt Taggert (GBR) completed the podium.
