The MYC Helly Hansen 23rd Annual Women's Challenge was run at the weekend with a strong performance from Middle Harbour boats.
When the BOM issued a Strong Wind Warning for Sydney Harbour you knew the event was going to live up to its name and what a challenge it was. Twenty Five yachts participated in divisional categories, seven of which were all female crew.
Alchemy may have won the best dressed boat in their Viking get ups but we all felt like gladiators in the very demanding conditions. Little Nico won line honours in Division 1, Female Helm with PT73 taking out 1st Place in All Female Crew Division 1 with Zeusus coming 2nd. Middle Harbour filled the podium for Division 1 in the Female Helm category with Sirius taking first place, closely followed by No Friends 2nd and Little Nico 3rd. Well done to all the competitors and congratulations to Manly Yacht Club for a fabulous event.
