Doyle Sailmakers SWEEPS the 2015 Australasian Winter Championship, hosted by Mooloolaba Yacht Chub earlier in June, with customers taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd*, 7th, 8th, and 10th in a 42 boat fleet. See Results here.

A great article is written on the Australian Etchells page. The winners on Yandee XX, Jeanne-Claude Strong, with team of Neville Wittey, Marcus Burke, and Tiana Wittey, winning their first major event, but also assuming the role of the first female to win a major Etchells event in Australia.

Cameron Miles of The Hole Way took second with his crew, James Mayo and Grant Cowle, tightly two points behind Yandee XX, despite some admitted erroneous tactical decisions. They were tied for first with Yandee XX  after the first day and leading after the second day of racing.
