SA 2017 10R State Title - 1st October 2017


SA 2017 10R State Title
West Lakes, 01 October 2017

As the skippers rigged their boats there was some doubt about completing our program of races because moderate cloud cover and virtually no wind suggested that it would be a frustrating day on the water.
The first heat was a “drifter”, but then the sun came out, the clouds started to disappear and a few wind gusts of varying strength and direction could be seen on the course.

Light S to SW winds remained with us for the all of the morning’s heats, and after lunch the wind steadied to become a moderate SW sea breeze. Competitors were able to keep using their ‘A’ rigs for all of the races.
During the day there were several close finishes, especially when the breeze was variable.


Before lunch there were several changes in the leading group – out on the course and on the score sheet, but in the afternoon races the final placegetters cleared away from the remainder of the fleet.
After 19 races Trevor Fisher from Springfield Lakes MM (Qld) was declared the winner of the South Australian 10R State Title for 2017.

There was a three-way tie for the minor placings: Tim Arland (SARYC) took out second place (on a countback) from Ben Morris from SMRYC/SARYC in third place. Alan Gold (SMRYC/SARYC) finished fourth.

Thanks go to Brian Walsh and Ian Dowsett, who shared the PRO responsibilities (incl. several course changes before the wind steadied), and Trevor Jeffree, our Scorer.
