Lipton 2016

Lipton Team

We were very sorry to hear that Trent Bingham would not be able to be part of this year’s Lipton team, due to a change in his University Course.  Trent has sailed the last 3 Lipton’s for RNYC and he will be missed by the team, but we know that he will be following our progress all the way.

We are pleased to welcome Paul Changuion in his place.  Paul has recently won the Hunter Nationals and is also the current Hunter Regional Champion as well.  Paul and his sailing partner Tim are also doing very well on their Flying 15.  Paul has participated in many Lipton challenges and is a long serving member of Royal Natal Yacht Club.

Some of you may have seen the team training last week and shortly B2G2 will be put in the water for some offshore training, before she is trailed down to Cape Town for the Lipton 2016 Challenge.  I am extremely proud of this team and their dedication to challenge ahead.

Yours in Sailing
