Flying 15 Australian Nationals - Jerwood's take first race

Nick and Janet Jerwood started their Flying 15 Australian Championship with a win in testing conditions on Esperance Bay.Philippa Packer / Dean McAullay lead Nick and Janet Jerwood -

A windward/leeward, triangle, windward/leeward and one final upwind course proved quite a testing day for the fleet of 40 boats.

Resulting in some wild rides, some collisions and gear breakages.

With around 20 to 28 knots of breeze and some quite large waves that provided some thrilling sailing, the South of Perth YC sailors finished ahead of John Wilson and Mat Summers.

In third place were the British pair, Alan Box and Simon Childs from Hayling Island SC.

Day two of racing has up to three races planned with an earlier start as the forecast is similar than today with a building breeze later in the afternoon.
