Dave Posted April 20, 2009 Report Share Posted April 20, 2009 The 2009 Maersk Line Paper Tiger Catamaran International Championships were held over Easter at Koonawarra Bay Sailing Club, south of Wollongong, NSW, Australia. 41 boats competed, as the host nation fleet was restricted to 30 boats and New Zealand sent 11 boats across. The light weather event was won by Ben Deed (Victoria) by just one point from Ian Marcovitch (NSW) with another point back to third-placed Greg Williams (Victoria). The top-placed Kiwi was John Kennett, who finished sixth. Australia won the Teams Trophy. Deed joins Peter Anderson (Victoria) and Garry Williams (NSW) as the only four-time winners of the event. Both Anderson and Williams were competing at this event. Only seven of the scheduled nine races were completed due to a lack of wind across the weekend.
