Black Sheep Racing Back in Business at the Hahn River International Match Race, Korea

by Reuben Corbett

Black Sheep Racing are in Korea competing in the Hahn River International Match Race after having a refreshing week off in New York. We were back into the routine this morning with registration, weigh in and training. Racing commenced after half time with the race committee completing three flights. The format includes a single round robin, semi finals, petit finals and a grand final.


The organisers have limited the number of entries to eight, the competitors include:
Koralev Nikolay (RUS)
Byeong Ki Park (KOR)
Gun Woo Park (KOR)
Peter Nicholas (AUS)
Tae Jung Kim (KOR)
Tiffany Koo Yee Chin (MAS)
Seung Chul Lim (KOR)
Black Sheep Racing (NZL)

Results: Day One

We competed in flights one and two to take victory in both. We started ahead and extended our lead in each race by covering tack for tack. There is plenty more sailing to come and we have a number of issues to sort out before tomorrow’s racing.

The team would like to thank the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, friends and family for their support. Thank you!

Black Sheep Racing in Korea is Reuben Corbett, Nicolas Derberque, Brad Farrand, Tom Bentham and James Sandall.
