We congratulate the winner of the Stonehaven Cup skipper, Ashley Wahlquist and her crew, Mayra Barber and Zoe Vlasic aboard the RMYS Heather, who together sailed a very consistent regatta.
Well done to the crew of the RBYC John Akhurst skipper Nathan Stanford and his crew, Patrick Stanford and Oli Martin. A strong performance this year, with another 12months of training this crew will be hard to beat next year.
Charlie Stellmaker, first year skipper and his crew, Alex Perry and Max Poulson of the King Island Boat Club team were a great surprise taking third place over all, KIBC look like another strong contender for the Cup next year.
Many new skippers and crews made their debut at this year’s Stonehaven Cup, we congratulate them all for their participation and commitment to their respective club teams and demonstrating good sportsperson ship toward each other. Camaraderie between competitors has always been a strong element of the Stonehaven Cup competition.
