With a fantastic start to the year, RMW Marine has won the JJ Giltinan 18fter World Championships.  With 4 wins and 2 second places, RMW reigned supreme in the series.  Excellent crew work and a fantastic boat and rig combination ensured that RMW took an early strangle hold upon the championship.  Beating 9 previous JJ winners, including Howie Hamlin, took an enormous effort and Rob and Peter Greenhalgh along with Dan Johnson did so convincingly.

CSTComposites skippered by Chris Dixon had mixed luck with collision in the Invitational Race, which set them back in the JJ.  However they recovered towards the end of the regatta for a 15th.

I14 World Titles

By All News, Marine News

Using a CST rig, RMW Marine has taken the worlds by storm winning 4  of the 6 races and not contesting the last race. 4 of the top 5 boats used CST rigs, dominating the waters off Wakayama, Japan.  The variable wind strengths proved a great test for the sailors with some races being postponed due to no wind and in others the starters were considering postponement due to excessive breeze.  See http://www.i14.jp/wakayama/ for more details.

Prince Of Wales Cup

By All News, Marine News

CST has again proved supremecy in the I14’s with RMW Marine (Rob Greenhalgh and Dan Johnson) using a CST rig to cruise to victory in the PoW Cup.  This race was full of thrills and spills with boats capsizing on a start line amid 62 others, causing a domino effect, T-bones and subsequent holings, and a few people being caught OCS. Greenhalgh sailed a conservative race and ended up with a giant lead that the other boats could not close down.  Congratulations David and Dan.
