WA South West Championships and Busselton Cup - 6/7th May 2017

busselton20171

IOM skippers in WA spent  the  weekend  of  May  6  and  7  down  in  Busselton  for  the  South-  West Championships and the Busselton Cup. The idea of the two regattas is to encourage skippers who may not consider themselves at the level of highly competitive regatta, but would like to participate in a more relaxed event.

This year, there were 13 in the Championships, and 5 in the Cup on Saturday, and 7 on Sunday. Most of the Perth guys drove down on Friday afternoon and spent the weekend in various locations. It happened to be the weekend of the Busselton Ironman event, so unfortunately, accommodation  was at a premium. Thankfully some of the local guys hosted a few of the skippers.

S/QLD RM Championship - 6th May 2017

Pine Rivers Radio Yacht Club

11 boats were registered for the event with 9 boats making it onto the water. All skippers stayed with their A rigs for the full day as the winds were fairly steady, blowing S/SW in the morning turning to S/SE in the afternoon. This necessitated only one course change.

Greg Torpy won the day on 14 points clear ahead of Jason Nasmith on 39 points followed by Ray Nasmith on 43 points.

It was a most enjoyable day for competitors and organisers with little or no disputes and any issues sorted out on the water, a definite tribute to all skippers in the event.

The PRO for the day was Bruce Frazer, Bruce and his helpers did an excellent job. David Black again offered his assistance with the scoring which was readily accepted.

NSW 10R Class GP 3 - 29th April 2017

10R GP 3 Report 29 April 2017 – MAZDA Trophy Hosted by Koonawarra Bay Sailing Club

This event was sailed at the Koonawarra Bay Sailing Club on Saturday 29 April 2017. The weather Gods were not with us again this year, with sailing being postponed for 1 hour due to no wind but a fine sunny day on Lake Illawarra. When the wind did settle in it was from 1800 from the forecast direction at a 3-5 knot ENE. Course was set as port hand windward / leeward and the 16 entrants sailed just four heats before lunch was taken.

Sailing recommenced in the afternoon with very light variable wind strength and direction making it necessary to change the courses from ENE to a 7-10knot SSE wind which made it a bit more interesting with a heavier chop than most sailors were used to. Sixteen races were contested with the dreaded “Bromley Braid” / Lake Weed showing up during the last 2 races, the rest of the racing was undertaken in good winds and “sea” state.

Southern Tasmanian IOM Championship - 2nd Apr

4aprTAS

Eleven skippers fronting for the first event of the 2017-18 season, the 2017 Southern Tasmanian IOM Championship. A fine and sunny autumn's day with light and variable winds, mainly from the west to south to around 3 knots, slowly building during the day to maybe 5-6 knots in the afternoon. With the variable wind directions, course setting was a challenge but all races had a windward/leeward component and generally short one lap races in the lighter airs and two laps when the breeze was settled. Despite the efforts of the awesome foursome on Saturday, there were still a few victims to strands of weed, and a few boats getting caught in the weed banks as well.

The Great Southern Championship and Albany Cup 2017

Western Australia’s Albany weekend proved to be another successful regatta all sorts of wind, great sailing, good company, good dining out, plenty of mishaps and plenty of fun had by all.

The regatta really started on Friday night with dinner at Rustlers. Local skippers and Perth ring-ins mixed amusement and in depth sailing discussions with normal ribbing and pseudo slander. It was great to see Moby again as he has been away from sailing with other work and family commitments. Unfortunately he was unable to sail things were subsequently a lot quieter in the control area.

S/QLD Dragon Force 65 Champs - 18th March

 RG665A

We had a good turnout for the day with 17 competitors and were able to complete 17 races by about 15:05.
The quality of the racing was excellent even though we had one of those variable wind days that are familiar at Springfield, but with many quite brisk events. We set the start towards a predominately western breeze and were able to maintain that course for the whole day. We have had some feedback from a few of the competitors who spoke very highly of the event and the way it was run, so I guess we can now feel confident for future events at Springfield Lakes.

TAS Herb Tyson Memorial Trophy for A Class- 17th March

22marTAS

A small fleet of 7 boats for the rescheduled Herb Tyson Trophy for A Class for 2016. Conditions were ideal at Montrose Bay with a sunny cloudless sky, an incoming tide, and a steady 3 to 6 knot northerly on arrival which slowly eased with patches of lighter conditions throughout the morning. Of the seven boats racing, one was not included in the results due to a measurement issue, however for his first go at the controls of an A Class, Ray Joyce sailed remarkably well. Veteran skipper Michael Hickman dominated the morning with 3 wins, 2 seconds and a third. Tank Walter also sailed well with 4 podium placings including a win in Race 4. Cliff Eaves was on the podium a couple of times and the Silver Fox Peter Darcy not having one of his better days but notching up a win in Race 6. Ray Joyce, although not in contention for the points, took a victory in Race 2 with a couple of podium finishes as well, and Kyle Stewart was up there with a couple of minor podiums.

QLD 10R Championship - 12th March

Queensland 10 Rater Championships – March 12

By Mark Perkin – PRYC 10R Fleet Captain

The latest 10 Rater championship event was held under fine conditions at Emerald Lakes, with 11 boats turning out on the day. The event also attracted quite a number of onlookers during the course of the day. It was great to see the Sunshine Coast boys come down and compete in the event.

You could say it was a case of diamonds are forever, with the Graham Bantock designed boats taking a clean sweep of the top 3 places.

The sailing breeze was generally light, with winds at the top mark becoming fickle in the shadow of the trees by the equipment shed. This issue eventually lead to the course being moved around half way thru the day, to a better location more in the middle of the lake, where there was nothing onshore to interrupt the breeze.

Brisbane IOM Challenge - 21/22nd January 2017

IOM Challenge BRYC E

 CLICK FOR MORE

32 skippers registered for the event and, pleasingly, all 32 showed up on the day.

Fortunately, the predicted maximum temperature of 35 for Saturday did not eventuate. The predicted south easterly change kicked in early, and after only a few seeding races in a north westerly, the remainder of the 2 days was spent sailing in a sometimes quite brisk south-easterly. Ideal for the Eagleby venue, as the course could be set across the face of the control area.

Racing, under the control of PRO Iain Kirley, got underway on time on Saturday, and at first it didn’t look all that promising, with a light and shifty north westerly and cloudy skies. It then swung around to a light South easterly and for a while the wind didn’t get much better. But by around 11:00 am it had picked up to the predicted 15-25 kph. The wind made it difficult for our resident chef, David Cox, to keep sufficient heat in his BBQ, and lunch was delayed an hour. Oh, and it rained/drizzled on an off for most of the afternoon with the roll of distant thunder thrown in for good measure.

Kawana Open - 10th December

This year's Kawana Open was sailed in a 6-10 Kt south easterly, with a fleet of 10 boats.

This was an umpired event controlled by Garry McMahon, and proved once again just how successful this format can be. Over the entire day there were no harsh words – only pleasant and extremely close racing, with only 2 points separating the first 3 boats at the lunch break.

The afternoon session saw Dave Turton lose his jib on two separate occasions, but he still managed to take the day from Greg Torpy by one point. Special thanks to David Black for scoring and Greg Adams for the photos.

TAS IOM Championships - 12/13th November

2016 Tasmanian IOM Championships

The 2016 Tasmanian IOM Championships were held over the past weekend in very tricky and testing conditions. PRO for the event was Les Hanson, assisted by yours truly on both days and Commodore David Murfet on Day 2. With a low pressure system parked off the east of Bass Straight, winds were light and patchy from the south to southeast and conditions cool and overcast, but dry for Day 1. With the forecast similar for the whole weekend, the regatta was going to test skipper's pond sailing skills. We can't have champagne sailing all the time!

WA IOM Metro Championship - 6th November

8nov

2016 RSAWA Metropolitan Championships

The Metros were held at Champion Lakes in Perth on Sunday November 6. The day started out sunny and bright. Fortunately, we turned up to see that a south wester had already filled in, so rather than waiting all morning for a decent breeze, we were right into the racing.

The organizing team consisted of Race Officer Chris Woods, and his able assistants Andree Bennett, Uncle Rod Moss and Fred Webber. Luckily, the wind direction was straight up and down the lake, so Chris could set a long beat and downwind course.

The fleet consisted of 16 keen skippers, sailing a range of designs. Predominantly there were Vickers boats, with some V8s and V9s as well as Rosco’s new V10. Three Britpops, a couple of Cheinz and a Mojo, as well as a couple of others made up the fleet.
