Scott Illingworth's Team takes 2011 MRX Owners Championships

The MRX Fleet's 2011 Championships were held in light flukey conditions off East Coast Bays. The RNZYS race management team did well to complete the regatta in trying conditions. Scott Illingworth with his team including Geoff Woolley, Scott Kennedy and Oopie Thompson were first equal at the end of day one with Tom Macky on Hall Spars and sailed consistently on Day two to take comfortably take out the regatta.

With the short courses the fleet often finished within seconds - it was particularly pleasing to have the Harken and 1993 crews out and sailing well - 1993 almost winning race 4!
