The 2023 CO32 Nationals hosted by Cowes Corinthian YC were held on 6th-8th October. Following a dramatic weekend of racing, Andaxi retained their title placing first in 3 of the five races. In doing so, they completed the triple crown as Nationals, Cowes Week and Inshore series champions.
Two races were completed on Friday with Merak II leading overnight, followed by Drumbeat then Andaxi. However, a collision between the top 2 boats shortly after starting in the first race on Saturday ended Drumbeats regatta and despite Merak II completing races 3 & 4, she was forced to retire from Race 5 to prevent further damage. This allowed Andaxi to capitalise on the situation and placed 1st in all three races on Saturday. Unfortunately the breeze never filled in on Sunday and so no more racing took place leaving Andaxi as overall winners.
