race report


Cam Horne with Brett Elliott and Nick Bastow of Slam Dunk have again  comfortably won the 2012 NZ Elliott 5.9 National Championships. Sailed from  Marsden Cove (near Whangarei) March 8-11th and run by the Onerahi Yacht  Club, a great event was put on for nine boats in this highly competitive  fleet. 

“It was an awesome event, a lot of fun and tight racing as usual,” Cam  said. “The event was just so well run.”

Despite trying conditions, Race Officer Paddy Simms managed to pull off a  full series of twelve races. The regatta was kicked off on Friday with 16-
22 kn of breeze and big rolling swell while racing in Bream Bay. Saturday  was expected to be worse, so racing was held inside Whangarei Harbour near  Parua Bay. The final races on Sunday were sailed in more gentle conditions  back out in Bream Bay with flatter water, so the regatta saw all sorts of  conditions. 

“In this fleet you have to be able to handle all conditions” Cam continued. “We just focused on staying clean on the race course and getting a good  start”

Slam Dunk (RAYC + RNZYS) was a convincing winner with an assured  performance. Rarely in trouble and never for long, Cam and his crew were  able to recover from some mid fleet positions and never once finished a  race outside the top three.
