steve sherring 20120401 3


Steve Sherring sailed an almost perfect series to win the 2012 International Moth State Championship at Darling Point Sailing Squadron (DPSS) last weekend. Steve's 5 wins and a 3rd kept him clear of second place nephew Jack and third placed Brent Pearson.

Saturday's forecast 10 kn southerly breeze arrived on time and made for some close racing, with the lead changing several times depending on who read the breeze the best. Steve regularly made good from setbacks to be in the lead when it mattered.

Sunday saw very different conditions, with the forecast 10 to 15 kn southerly staying away with very little foiling possible. Except for Jack, who managed to lap almost the entire fleet on his way to winning the last race.
