Mahurangi College sailed its way to victory in the bronze fleet at the Secondary Schools Team Sailing National Championship at Algies Bay last month.

The event saw a record 36 teams compete, with almost 12,000km sailed across gold, silver and bronze fleets. Teams came from as far south as Wanaka, right up to Kerikeri and the Cook Islands.

Mahurangi College team captain Heather Niccolls says although she was disappointed with some individual race results, she was pleased with the overall performance. “The team was good at staying positive and communicating,” she says. “Our team was made up of three families, so we’re all close and able to work together.”

Next year Mahurangi College will lose two skippers, but Heather says a strong group is coming through that would like to win silver fleet next year.

Auckland Grammar took out first in gold fleet this year, with Kerikeri second and Kristin third.
