24 TEAMS CONTEST 2019 NEW ZEALAND 420 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Twenty-four teams from across New Zealand headed to Takapuna Boating Club from 14-17 March 2019 for the New Zealand 420 National Championships.
Racing took place over four days in a light breeze, ranging from 2-12 knots.
Seb Menzies/Blake McGlashan took out their second National Championship title off the back of 10 wins from 11 races, giving no chance to any other teams to get a look in.
With the Menzies/McGlashan partnership assured of victory early on, the battle intensified for the remaining silver and bronze podium places, between three teams. Delivering a solid 35 points, still 25 off the leaders, Mason Mulcahy/Andre van Dam and Ryan Littlechild/Jack Ferguson finished one point apart, to close the Championship on 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Top placed women's team were Matilda Richardson/Lily Richardson in 5th overall.
