2021 Cock O'Harbour Regatta Results

A light nor-westerly breeze greeted the 30 starters of the 2021 Cock of the Harbour Regatta and, typical for breezes on the wrong side of the vertical line, it was a day of wind gusts, lulls and big changes in direction.

The F20 "Thunderbolt" sailed by Brett White and Ethan McAulaf showed great pace in the puffs to open up an early lead in the race but in some very light stuff just before the finish line the F18 "Send It Marine" sailed by Daniel & Nathan Van Kerckhof got past the bigger catamaran to claim the trophy. The F18 "1484" sailed by Ian Lamb and Sophia Walton took the final step on the podium.

The Van Kerckhof family have previously claimed this trophy a number of times over the last 20 years.

In the Yardstick results, the Vee Esses sailed very well in the light breeze to claim the first 3 spots. "2 Sailors + 1" sailed by John Jefferson, Pete & Brody Sullian won comfortably from "Stowe" (Tim Dodds, Scott Coleman, Luke Rasford) and "Meeks Real Estate" (Geoff Sakins, Mark Nugent, Greg Busch).

Two classes had the required number of entrants to get their own divisions - Vee Esses and F18s. Other boats went into the Miscellaneous Monohulls or Miscellaneous Catamarans divisions. Podiums for these divisions follow:
