Lipton Cup Challenge
Message from Heidi Burger and Team ZVYC: “So after a broken mast and a broken gooseneck, we managed to pull through yesterday and achieve an 9th! Thank goodness for the postponement due to no wind, because we had to weigh in all over again thanks to our new mast. Somehow we lost 20kg by putting in a new mast, so an extra 20kg of lead needed to be found to get the boat to the right weight! All in all, we made it out to the racing in time. We had an awesome race with perfect gybes, perfect tacks and a whoo at every good spinnaker drop! Thanks to Coach Taariq Jacobs for pulling through like he always does by setting up our rig beautifully. Shoutout to Ricky Robinson for helping us out.”
