Oppies version of the America’s Cup

op8The America’s Cup came to Medway YC this weekend.

Medway Oppies celebrated the 35th edition with their homage to the Old Mug.

  • Best dressed Optimist went to Team Groupama France, with runners up Team Artemis Racing and BAR Great Britain a close third.

The on water action match racing was just as competitive, there was no foiling but a wrong tack or gybe through the gate would put you at the back. The unusual decision of Team BAR to join forces with Groupama paid off with the combined team taking the win and the Old Mug.

Team Artemis again where the runners up followed by Emirates NZ and then the off-form Team Oracle USA.
