IRSA Announces Venue for Twin World Championships

IRSA LOGOIRSA has announced the bid for the 2020 Twin World Championships for International Ten Rater & International Marblehead classes has been awarded.

The bid for the 2020 Twin World Championships has been awarded to West Kirby, Great Britain.

The nominations from both West Kirby (GBR) & Castiglione del Lago (ITA) were very strong and had a variety of factors about them. As a result it has taken some time for IRSA to arrive at a decision.

The IRSA would like to thank the Castiglione del Lago team and the Italian national member for their time and effort with this bid.

Aussie Victory Across the Tasman


The 2019 NZL South Island Championship expected to see a vigorous tussle between the New Zealand champion, Ian Vickers and our current Australian Champion, Sean Wallis, and it lived up to expectations.

imagespegasus1Light winds were forecast and this held true with racing on day one delayed until 12.30 before a light breeze filled across Pegasus Lake.  With multiple course areas available to suit all wind directions the RO was still challenged with the shifty breeze of around 5 knots blowing between ENE & SE but was able to get the fleet away.

The local champ drew first blood in race one with a win ahead of Wallis in a race where barely a couple of boat lengths split the pair, while Pegasus sailor Keith May claimed in win in heat 1B.

2018 New Zealand IOM Championship

Six Aussie’s made the trip across ‘the ditch’ to Wattle Farm, Auckland, New Zealand for the 2018 NZL IOM Championship and based on previous advice the intrepid Aussie’s were expecting an awesome venue with quality breezes and great sailing. Come to Wattle Farm they said, it will be great they said! All encouraging news given in the past we sailed on a duck pond, a weed infested lake with no breeze and a piddly lake in chilly and wet Christchurch – surely they had to get it right this time!

In the days before the event the dreaded email came through advising that the host club was being challenged by a weed infestation but every effort was being made with tons of the stuff being hauled from the main lake on a daily basis and by the time we had a practice sail on the Thursday it would have appeared that their efforts were paying off however, by Friday the battle had been lost and the decision was to sail on the secondary lake (how lucky to have two of them).

1The forecast weather conditions were favorable, temperatures around 20C, sunshine and light winds for the duration, at least the shorts and t-shirts got a chance to get out instead of the wet weather gear.

Aussies at the Ten Rater & Marblehead World’s


Aussies at the Ten Rater & Marblehead World’s

Germany was the host country for the 2018 Ten Rater & Marblehead World Championships held at Biblis from 24 May to 01 June.

Australia was represented by Kirwan Robb (VIC), Andrew Reid (VIC), David Turton (QLD) & David “Yoda” Thomas (VIC) in both classes with 53 competitors in the Ten Rater Class and 76 in the Marblehead.

Winds were predominantly light over the two championships which probably didn’t suit our team entirely but they still managed to pull of some great results.

In the Ten’s Andy kicked off the championship with some great top ten places and certainly had the potential for a top ten finish although struggled in the latter part of the championship finishing 14th overall. Kirwan also had a good start with a 6th & 4th in the first three races but ended up with a mixed bag finally finishing a creditable 10th overall. Our remaining Aussies, Turts & Yoda finished 23rd & 42nd respectively.

The M’s followed immediately after the Tens and it was Kirwan that opened his score card with a 2nd in the seeding race and with regular top ten finishes, ended up an astounding 4th overall with Andy 17th, Turts 37th and Yoda 52nd.

Overall our team should be proud of their performance, the time and effort to participate on the international stage is significant and on behalf of the ARYA I congratulate them all on their results and effort in representing Australia at the events.

President ARYA
