Hansa Class Nationals features close racing

2014 Hansa Class Nationals were hosted by the Waitara Boating Club and completed nine races over the three days of the regatta. Racing was very close in the Liberty and 303 single classes, conditions on day one saw a fresh southeaster testing the sailors and equipment. In the Liberty class Helena Horswell and Wayne South of (RAYC) topped the leader board, and in the 303 class local sailor Bob Knox (WBC) and Ben Geddies (TYPBC) took the lead.

Are you interested in becoming a classifier?

Firstly- you may be wondering what IS a classifier? A classifier is a person with both a sailing and medical background that conducts functional testing on sailors with a physical disability, in order to determine their ‘class’ or points allocation for competition in Paralympic class boats. They are volunteers, like other race officials, and have a structured education pathway not too unsimilar to that of a Judge or Race Officer.
