By Andy Parsons | Posted: Sunday April 9, 2017

Term One this year has been one of the best starts to a sailing year yet.

Large numbers of mostly Year 9 and 10 students have been regularly sailing on Tuesdays after school with experienced sailors passing on their skills to the new-comers.

Linus Molteno, Molly Barton, Miriam Barton, Ella Molteno competed in a week long regatta on the Otago Harbour during Tournament Week.

Miriam (Skipper) and Ella (Crew) won the Allan Garbutt Trophy for best all female crew and were also placed 3rd under handicap and 5th overall in the Gold Fleet. Molly (Skipper) and Linus (Crew) also enjoyed a podium finish being placed third in the Silver Fleet. Well done to both teams!
