Sunshine and a steady 15-18 knot southerly greeted competitors for Round 4 of the Port Phillip Women’s Championship Series (PPWCS) on Sunday 4 March with Royal Yacht Club of Victoria (RYCV) hosting our annual Val Hodge Trophy race.
A short postponement due to the Diamond State titles being run in parallel and then the women’s fleet was away with a clean start. The three lap windward and return course kept crews on their toes both upwind and downwind and saw some close battles fought.
The gutsy effort aboard Up ‘n Go saw them win the day in PHS and claim strong second placings in both IRC and AMS. Congratulations!
