HOAC stars fin­ish top at home event

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

FOUR Hilling­don Out­door Ac­tiv­i­ties Cen­tre (HOAC) rep­re­sen­ta­tives fin­ished cham­pi­ons as the club hosted their first Lon­don Youth Trav­eller Event, writes Dim­itri Kon­do­nis.

Curtis McKay, Emanuele Nar­dini and Jack Hurst (to­gether) and Ben Lyth­goe all earned the top prize as the hosts tri­umphed in the ma­jor­ity of events. Win­ning the Top­per, RS Feva and RS Tera com­pe­ti­tions re­spec­tively, HOAC did re­mark­ably well as a team.

The event was or­gan­ised by par­ents to al­low par­tic­i­pants from Lon­don-based clubs and Royal Yacht­ing As­so­ci­a­tion cen­tres to take part in class rac­ing in a re­laxed and friendly en­vi­ron­ment in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions across the cap­i­tal.

And more than 30 sailors took to the wa­ter in Lasers, Top­pers, Fevas and Teras com­pet­ing four races, with the Laser con­test par­tic­u­larly en­thralling as po­si­tions in­ter­changed reg­u­larly un­til the end.

HOAC rep­re­sen­ta­tives not only fin­ished first in three of the events, but David Lim and James Smag­gas­gale were run­ners-up in the Laser and Top­per events, with Jack Hughes com­ing third in the RS Feva to wrap up a vic­to­ri­ous day for the club.
