The Mahu X team consisted of Laurie JURY, Graeme SUTHERLAND and Logan SUTHERLAND, Georgina HILL, Anne Marie WAUGH and Jamie DAWSON. All three skippers are top match racers and have dominated the youth match racing circuit. JURY and Graeme recently sailed with world #1 Ian WILLIAMS (GBR) in the ISAF Grade 1 Auckland Match Race Cup where they finished second, losing the final 3-1 to Dean BARKER (NZL).
Mahu X only lost two races out of the 21 sailed over the weekend. Both these races were won by the Mahurangi College team. Mahu X have been coaching the College team for the last few years, so the College team took great pleasure in giving their teachers a few pointers.
The Mahu X team will now represent New Zealand in the 2007 ISAF Team Racing World Championship, which will be held in Gandia, Spain in September.
