NSW Ben Lexcen GP RD5 - 7th October 2017

Saturday 7th April saw the Northern Mariners conduct 10 Rater’s GP 5, the Ben Lexcen

Trophy at Kariong Gardens .

We had representatives from four clubs and would like to thank those sailors for their support particularly Steve Sedgmen from Canberra for making the long trip to join us over the weekend. The three other clubs represented were Kogarah Bay, Lake Macquarie and of course The Northern Mariners.

As it was a ten o’clock start we had problems settling on a course as the breeze was moving around one hundred and eighty degrees. After a couple of course changes we were able to get racing underway.

For the first period of racing we had breezes from the Western side of the compass. Our PRO Scott Condie did a fantastic job giving our participants the best possible racing.

The afternoon racing saw a breeze change with the wind shifting more to the South. It was made for great 10 Rater sailing.

From the outset Steve Sedgmen pretty much dominated the racing winning eleven of the eighteen races. Other heat winners were Owen Jarvis 2, Ben Taylor 3, Wayne Keavy 1 and Pat O’Donnell wining the last heat.

The last three positions were hotly contested by the three Andrew’s with Andrew Sands on 119 points, Andrew Crocker on 120 points and new comer Andrew Holly on 121 points, finishing 9th, 10th and 11th respectively.

Big congratulations to Steve Sedgmen winning on 25 points with Owen Jarvis second on 46 points and Ben Taylor third place on 51 points.

Thanks To Scott for making the trip up from Caring bah and doing a great job as PRO for the day. Also thanks to Fletch and his lovely wife for putting in the effort and supplying lunch.

Dick McCulloch

Northern Mariners Secretary.
