The Final Day of the Gold Fleet Championships was a quick and exciting run of two pennant 3 races, due to the early arrival of the North-northeasterly winds. Wind speeds hit a consistent 8-10 knots, giving sailors a windy treat on the course!
2017 winner Muhammad Raihan Bin Mohd Airudin secured his title defence with a 3rd and 12th place finish in today’s races – putting him 8 points ahead of 2nd placed Radiance Koh. Radiance sailed brilliantly from Day 2 onwards, steadily creeping up the standings each day to complete this regatta as 1st runner-up. She displaces Josiah Tan into 3rd place, whose 22nd placing in the final race costed him a drop to 3rd.
The Junior Mixed Division is meant to encourage the sailors who have made it into the Gold Fleet at such a young age. Zach Low tops this division in 37th place, just 5 rungs above Isaac Poon in 42nd. Oon Cheanng Qi completes the top 3 and scored 54th overall. CSC representative Antonin Radue showed much promise throughout the regatta, placing in the top 10 for 3 races. Despite finishing a commendable 18th overall, he will need to work on his consistency should he wish to climb the standings for future regattas.
Many Thanks to the Sailors, Parents and volunteers for joining us over the past 4 days! We would also like to extend a Big Thank You to Jerrold Ng and Michael Tan for presiding over this event as the Juries. Last but not least, Thank you once again to Xtreme Sailing Products for the generously sponsoring the prizes!
Congratulations to all the winners – we look forward to hosting everyone again next year – till then, happy holidays!
