Dave Wood & Crew Regain the MRX Owners Championship

This year Ponsonby Cruising Club ran the MRX Owners Champs in tricky light North Easterly conditions. The regatta was timed 2 weeks before the Open Keel Boat Champs and 4 weeks before the Pacific Keel Boat Challenge to provide MRX owners with an opportunity to hone their skills before these 2 events.

Dave Fredric, right, Vice Commodore Ponsonby Cruising Club and Brian Trubovich, able Officer of the Day, great hosts

Dave Wood showed good skills in the light weather always finding his way through the fleet to achieve consistently high places over the 8 races sailed. 2nd was Harry Dodson, back in the fleet after several years away, 3rd was Grant Turnbull and 4th, last years winner, Pete Waters.
