QLD EC12 Championship - 3rd July


Having sailed at Carbrook on the previous day, it was fairly obvious to me that, with a big fat high pressure looming large, if Saturday was quiet then Sunday was going to be even quieter, and so it proved to be.

A glorious winters day, temperature in the high teens and low 20’s…but not a lot of wind.

What breeze there was, came out of the south west with the odd swing to the north, and later even a bit of a south easterly, but by around 2:00pm it had all but disappeared.

PRO Ian Ashe did his level best to provide a course and, by and large he was successful, but you have to work with what you are given.

Thank you to the Skippers who attended and to the BRYC and LCMM members who helped run the show, and to David Black for scoring and Ian Ashe for acting as PRO

Thank you also to Paul Newman for the photographs. Unfortunately, Paul could not stay for the whole day, and we didn’t get a shot of the place getters but I’ll list out the names from left to right in the group shot and you’ll see who was who in the zoo.

Peter Morris, Gary Taylor, Yeoman Sands, Ian Smith, Dale Smith, Harley Jackman, Grant Lihou.

Competition between Peter and Gary was always close, and it was either of these two who filled first and second place in all but 1 of the 13 races we managed to get in.

Placings for the 3rd, 4th and 5th were close with just 1 point giving Grant 3rd over Harley, and Yeoman not that far away.

6th and 7th … ..well,  you can see for yourself.. Just one of those days when nothing seemed to go right for either of us.

A couple more knots of breeze would have been nice, as these boats revel in the light airs and look so nice on the water, but as I said, you have to work with what you have.

Congratulations to Peter, Gary and Grant.

Ian Smith

Secretary BRYC
