Well done to all competitors who took part in the CD Champs - lots of positive feedback on the varied and challenging racing across three very different events.
Big thanks to all the OBOP people who made this a success; organisers, controllers, setters and the many volunteers that gave their time - fantastic!
Many highlights, including the treat of being able to compete on Longfords farm, Okareka, with some amazing views of surrounding hills and lakes (see right).
