NSW 10 Rater Interclub - 25/26th August

10 Rater Interclub

Lake Macquarie Radio Yacht Club 25/26th August, 2018

Edwards Park on beautiful Lake Macquarie was the location for the 2018 Interclub for 10 Rater yachts hosted by the Lake Macquarie Radio Yacht Club. The event was held on Saturday and Sunday, Scratch on Saturday, and Handicap on Sunday.

Arnold Grant, the PRO, set a predominantly windward/leeward course with the top mark comprising a clearance buoy and the bottom mark being a gate allowing sailors to split strategies.

Weather for Saturday was mixed with rapidly approaching low pressure system causing varying wind speed and direction. Starting with a gusty northerly, the wind died before a strong nor’easter kicked in with a healthy swell coming across the lake. A rigs were eventually chosen and rigs were adjusted for winds around the top of A rig. The event was fortunate as storms were forming throughout the day to the north-east, north–west, and south. The storm to the south, not 30klms away, eventually producing large hailstones in the late afternoon at the south of the lake.

Sunday offered a completely different story with flat water, a slight nor’easter eventually turning sou’-sou’-easter. A rigs were chosen by all who stayed and test their light wind skills (and patience). Those who stayed over from the Saturday and had a distance to travel wisely deciding to hit the road.
