If you saw some tiny raft darting around the Bay you were probably watching the WASZPs.

However, one New South Wales youngster Jack Ferguson shone in the series clinching the Australian Championship in fourth position.

The Regatta has been hailed as very successful.

“Salamander Bay is certainly one of the most amazing places to host an event, the 42 sailors from all states and 3 countries enjoyed the event immensely,” he said.

The winners of the Nationals were first Seb Menzies (🇳🇿), second Sam Street (🇳🇿), Third Alex Mitchell-Barker (🇳🇿), Fourth Jack Ferguson (🇦🇺) the first placed Australian and fifth Ben Gunther (🇦🇺).
