Weta Shonan Championship - Weta Marine Japan

November 11th, 2019

先週の日曜日、WETAクラス初の選手権(湘南選手権)が6艇のエントリーのもと開催されました。
あいにく一日中微風に終始し、WETAの豪快なセーリングは出来ませんでしたが、艇間の距離が近いエキサイティングな展開を楽しんでいました。
栄えある優勝は江の島ヨットハーバーでは1番古参のセイル番号294、赤ハルの藤田、中野組でした。
2位は青木、重田組、3位は校條、岩根組となり上位3チームは元FBクラスからの乗換え組で占められたことになりました。

Last Sunday, the first WETA class championship (Shonan Championship) was held with the entry of six boats. Unfortunately, we couldn't do WETA's exciting sailing all day long, but we enjoyed exciting developments where the distance between the boats was short. The prestigious championship was No.
