After his third place at the 2016 pre-World Championships in Benalla, Tom Claffey has now won the 2016 NSW State Championships with a clear points margin.

He was able to win five of the seven total competition days. He averaged over 140 km/hr over distances between 400 and 500 km. His fastest speed came on the third day when he completed the 425 km task at 151 km/hr.

The 18m class scoring ended up being valid for the Open class as well.

In the 15m class Kerrie Claffey was happy about her third place finish in her ASW 28 and in the Clubclass Peter (Stan) O’Donnell also finished third with his ASW 20.
