The 2016/17 edition of the South Island Sunburst Championships was held in Dunedin at Vauxhall Yacht Club over the weekend of the 26th and 27th November.
4 Canterbury boats made the journey, and fared well in the boisterous conditions. Reigning champions Matt & Emmeline Neale (Mt. Pleasant YC) on Moonbeam II convincingly defended their title, ahead of runners-up Craig Tomlinson and James Palleson (Pleasant Point YC) showing good form on Tecary.
