2023 Australian 420 Championship at Metung Yacht Regular Club

A few capsized boats over the four days, and a few minor accidents involving three competitors in the 12-race series

More than one competitor had to withdraw from the race on day 4, due to injury or infection, and one boat withdrew in the final race

In fact, some willing volunteers assumed that several competitors were able to participate on the final day of racing

while they might otherwise have had to sit out after their teammates withdrew due to contamination or damage

The choice to compete is left to the race officer, since those yachts no longer had the function of placing in the championship.

Crews of 19 boats have been competing for fame at the Open Teen (Under 19), Junior (Under 16) and Women's National Championships

Racing conditions during the four-day regatta, while challenging, allowed all 12 planned races to be completed

Four races were completed on day three, prompting an early start and finish for day 4, with only races left for the collection.
