The Victor Harbor Yacht Club will host the 62nd Yvonne 20 Catamaran Class Championships.
The series is expected to attract 14 boats from South Australia and Western Australia. Brothers Shane and Jason Phillips will be hoping to defend their title, which they won in Warrnambool aboard Trump Card. In winning the title the brothers became the third generation of the family to be successful in the championship series.
Local sailor Marcus Towell will be keen to recapture the title he had held for two years. This year he will sail with a new crew Harry Lawson.
With SA boats outnumbering the interstate competitors it is hoped that the Teams Trophy will be won back from WA. Success will depend upon good performances from locals Simon Meathrel, Brianna Williams and Peter Michelmore
Long time Yvonne sailor Dave Randall of WA will be hoping for some inside information with Victor sailor Steve Rogers taking on the crewing role. The series runs from Saturday, December 30, until Friday, January 5.
