Run down of the Lawsons Dry Hills New Year Regatta 2019

Zhik crew member, Emily Dimock, took part in the Lawson's Dry Hills New Year Regatta last weekend in Waikawa and gave us her own run down on the regatta, including congratulating overall winner, Claudia Pierce!

Congratulations to Claudia Pierce and her crew on Young 11 Kaimai Flyer (RPNYC) for taking out the Lawson’s Dry Hills New Year Regatta 2019, held in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound over 12-13 January. 

43 boats competed across five divisions, including a sports boat division for the first time - this was won with consistently strong performances by Nigel Wallis and Shane Smith’s Overspray (Elliot 780, NPCL).

A strong Young 88 fleet saw every race won on line by Craig Edwards’ Flying Machine (NPYC). Close handicaps meant the overall Young 88 trophy went to near competition on Mike West’s Whistler 3 (RPNYC).

Stunning scenery, fantastic local hospitality and tricky gusts are hallmarks of this regatta, making it a summer highlight for over 100 sailors from Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Blenheim and Picton. 

Incredibly well organised by the Waikawa Boating Club, if you’re a keelboat or sports boat sailor this is definitely a regatta to add to your summer plans. 

Thank you to all the race officials, volunteers and sailors for a fantastic and memorable weekend. Photo cred: Emily Dimock.

Emily Dimock hails from Wellington, but now resides in Auckland (RNZYS). She has extensive experience in various sailing classes including Laser, Elliot 780, Thomson 22, Nolex 25, Young 88, Ross 12 and Farr 43. Lucky enough to grow up cruising all over NZ, Emily has gained some solid offshore racing experience over the years. She currently races on the classic Logan, Rainbow A7 and when she's not on the water, she's nose to grindstone on a Leadership programme and (lucky for us) assisting us with our social media!
