NSW 10 Rater State Championship 2015

30nov10r1This year the state championship was hosted by Lake Macquarie Radio Yacht Club at Edwards Park, Booragul. 23 skippers turned up on Saturday morning to do battle. Andrew Reid made the trip from Melbourne and Mark Newman and Steve Sedgmen were there to represent the Canberra MYC. All the NSW 10R clubs were represented by at least one skipper.

With pending rain and 15 to 20 knot winds predicted it was looking like Saturday was going to be interesting. Instead we stayed in A rigs all day on a moderate S/SE and went looking for the sunscreen. Twas a fun day even with lumps of random weed clinging like jellyfish to the keels. At the end of the day, the “big guns” were fighting for some advantage but most of us had enough stories of bad luck and poor starts to fill a book.

But this was all made up for by the night at the pub. Ordinary meal but great company, lots of laughing and other much “carry on”.

Sunday was different. Constantly shifting winds, mark shifting, gusts up and down the scale and rain. Down to B rig and some C rig at times and we finished the day with a drifter. Fortunately there was much less weed to contend with. 14 races were completed over the two days.

Congratulations to Scott and his “Trance” for weaving his magic (again) closely hounded by Andy from Victoria and Garry from Wollongong. Steve from Canberra was fourth only two points behind Garry.
Well we had it all: great company, awesome lunch and home cooked things to nibble on. (Thanks Ladies) This was Lake Macquarie at it’s best. Thanks to the LMRYC for their enthusiasm organising and running the regatta, especially Graham Payn, Mark Wilson and Arnold Grant.

And, most would not be aware but this fleet is possibly one of the biggest of any championship in the world for 10Rs. There were 23 competitors and I can’t find a bigger regional or national championship overseas. 10Rs are very healthy in Australia and looks like we will have a number attending next years’ Worlds at Lake Garda, northern Italy.

Finally, thanks to every one for first making the trip and also for your fair sailing over the weekend. There were only a few minor issues, all settled on the water except for one where redress was required.
