Previous National Champion Steve Girdis and his mixed crew of Victorians and New South Welshmen (notionally a Victorian crew then) sailing 'Convicts Revenge' are the new 2018 Monjon J24 Victorian State Champions, from Dave West sailing 'Kaotic' (NSW) and Brendan Lee in 'By the Lee' (Vic).

Current National Champion Hugo Ottaway is the winner of the PHS competition from Kaotic and Convicts Revenge.

With hot sunny and light conditions on Saturday and heavier southerlies on Sunday, the regatta had a bit of everything, many old faces moved back in the fleet with new blood coming to the fore. The NSW entries did well in a very competitive fleet of 19 boats. Racing was very close with many races having the bulk of the fleet finishing with a few minutes of each other

A full report in the next few days, stay tuned.
