ROSS MACKINNON/ALEX FALCON WIN OPENING SOUTHERN CHARTER CLASSICS EVENT
Seven wins from eight races saw complete domination from Ross Mackinnon/Alex Falcon at the opening event of the Southern Charter Classic series hosted at Zeekoe Vlei Yacht Club in South Africa.
This annual three-event series is hosted at three different clubs across South Africa and features racing for multiple classes, with the opening event over the weekend of 7-8 September.
A strong 10-boat fleet contested the 420 class in event 1, with the more experienced teams showing their class to the younger sailors. Pushing hard behind winners Ross Mackinnon/Alex Falcon were Theo Scheder-Bieschin/Hamilton Slater who claimed a string of 2nd place finishes, and third to Shane Joseph/Amir Yahyha.
Before then, the International 420 Class will be heading to South Africa for a Coaches and Sailors Clinic at Hermanus Yacht Club from 22-26 September 2019.
