PAUL SNOW-HANSEN/DAN WILLCOX WIN THE 2020 470 NEW ZEALAND NATIONALS AND MAOR ABU/YOAV ROOZ (ISR) THE OVERALL
After two days of extremely tricky conditions (35’ wind shifts and “holes”), finally the wind settled and some tight racing took place.
Maor Abu and Yoav Rooz (ISR) took out the NZ 470 Championship Title with consistent sailing, beating Kiwis Paul Snow-Hansen and Dan Willcox (NZ Resident Champions) by the narrowest of margins. Third and Junior/Youth title winners Seb Menzies/ Blake MacGlashon completed the podium. Susannah Pyatt and Brianna Reynolds-Smith were the leading womens team and fourth overall.
