The 49er, 49erFX and 29er fleets all had their Australian National Championships in the first week of 2019 at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, and it was a spectacular event.
The 49er and 49erFX fleets had runaway winners but the competition in the 29er fleet was intense, with the fight for the podium coming down to the very last race.
On the final day, all fleets got three races in, and the 49er fleet were loving the conditions as they flew around the race track at top speed. After another faultless performance today, Will and Sam Phillips became 2019 National Champions, sealing off a perfect score card of 16 bullets from a possible 16 races. James Grogan and Charlie Dixon were close behind the winners finishing in second overall, with Oliver Manton and Jack Lloyd rounding out the podium in third overall.
