VETERAN Grahame Southwick achieved his highest world ranking at the World Hobie Cat Championship which is underway in Australia.

Southwick finished second in the Grand Masters 60 plus division last week to record his best world ranking.

The top local sailor had to battle heavy winds approaching 30 knots during the race on Friday which had 25 boats competing.

Southwick also competed in the Open Grand Masters over 55 competition in which he finished 10th in the fleet of 55 race boats.

"I'm very happy to have achieved this highest world ranking to date," he said.

Also over the weekend, Kaveni Natadra and Deborah Sue recorded a good start in the heats.

"Again the wind drove in at 30 plus knots and half the fleet abandoned the course," Southwick said.

Yesterday couple Shayne and Torika Brodie took part in the race.
