SSANZ Two Handed Division in Auckland to Tauranga Results
07 Apr 2007
The magnificent new SSANZ Trophy for the Auckland Tauranga Race brought out 7 crews each wanting to be the first ever to engrave their boats name on the cup. Zen (Steve Newcombe) and Hard Labour (Steve Barton) battled hard most of the way boat for boat. However in the closing stages Hard Labour got caught in a hole to let Zen slip away to take line honours ahead of Expressway (Russell Weston). Hard Labour recovered to finish not to far behind and close enough to take the handicap win for the SSANZ Trophy. It was a very light race featuring many retirements. But perseverance definately paid off for the Hard Labour team with a most impressive prize haul. Adding IRC, ORC and PHRF prizes to their Two Handed win the loot included 2 wet weather jackets, a VHF radio, a life jacket and a Marine BBQ. So next year enter the Two Handed division and see what you can win !
It's always great to see Two Handed crews giving the fully crewed boats a real run for their money !
