The first day started later than scheduled with a light breeze from the north east, the first two races were sailed in “A” rigs with race two at the top end of “A” quick changes were made to “B” and by race four most skippers were on “C” with the north easterly building.
Lunch was served from the motorhome by the mudder then back to it, some skippers were experiencing control and electrical issues which reduced the fleet to eight at times, by race nine most skippers were down to “C2” rigs, with racing finishing for the day at race 13.
The South West Championships were held at the Provence Estate in Busselton, over the weekend of May 7/8 2016. The Geograph Radio Sailing Club put on a terrific weekend at their new lake.
The lake is a great radio sailing venue, with uninterrupted wind, deep water without weed. The prevailing winds blow along the length of the lake.
As is usual in Western Australia, the regatta was sailed in two fleets. The Championship fleet sailed for ranking points, whilst the Cup fleet was an opportunity for skippers to participate in the event without pressure. Skippers in the Championship fleet spend time helping the skippers in the Cup fleet by assisting with boat tune and coaching.

UK 2016 IOM Ranking 1&2 Eastbourne
Well Done to Brad Gibson and Rob Walsh for winning Event 1 and 2 of the 2016 IOM Ranking season, in difficult sailing conditions they were the most consistent performers on each day, and deserved winners. there were some news names on the leader board and a return to form for a few old names and the overall entry quality is great to see.
Making good use of HMS, Jes Collier and the team from Eastbourne ran 3 large fleets which was fantastic to see on the water, with many passers by commenting on all the boats.
As with all our ranking events, it’s not only about the top skippers but also those further down the fleet and it was great to see some new faces in Pete Smith, Alistair Hodge, Dave Adam, and Rick Ford although their early skirmishes, we hope not their last!Read more ...
