Perth Radio Sailing Club’s 2019 “Bink Frayne Memorial A Class” regatta.

11mars3This year, Perth Radio Sailing Club relocated the annual Bink Frayne Memorial A Class regatta to Austin Lakes in South Yunderup. Unfortunately, we could not be reasonably confident that our home lake at Jackadder would be covered in weed. This was the fourth running of the event following Bink’s passing.

Saturday March 9 was the date, and the forecast was for grey skies, drizzle and light winds. For once, the Bureau got it right, and we drove south into light rain. The wind just refused to blow the clouds away. That is how the whole of the rest of the day unfolded.

Rob Mews kindly agreed to do the Race Officer’s job, and his challenge early on was to see if he could work out which direction the wind was blowing – well it wasn’t. Roger kindly trailed the Mullet and equipment down to Austin Lakes and we thank him for doing that. Also making the trip to assist Rob, was old mate Rodney Moss. Rod is such a great clubman, and is always willing to go out of his way to help. Thanks to you too Rod for giving up your time to assist.

Just before the scheduled start time, a zephyr appeared out of the north – almost the opposite direction to the forecast. Roger set a course with 6 marks in a line towards the north and 5 at the bottom of the course. Surely, we would be able to get a course out of that!

2018 Western Australian IOM State Championships.


The weekend of December 1 and 2 was the date for the WA IOM State Championship. The regatta was held this year in the lovely seaside town of Albany, which is a 4 and a half hour drive south of Perth. The locals were looking forward to welcoming the visitors and a great turn-out was evident.

15 visitors made the journey mostly on the Friday prior. The bakery in Mount Barker would have received a steady stream of radio sailors looking to sample the BEST pies you will ever find. Mine was a Scallop pie, which was magnificent! On Friday afternoon, you could find a few skippers sneaking down to the marina far a sneaky practice sail in conditions which would prove to be pretty standard for the whole weekend.
