Australian Radio Yachting Association
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.
Racing started at approximately 10:05 and finished at 14:25 at West Lakes; managing to get only 13 heats completed. The day was hot, wind was reasonably consistent mainly from the West with Southerly component. Medium / light to light at different times during the day.
As can be seen from the results, Scott Mitchell consistently managed to keep up the sharp end of the fleet.
Thanks to Ian Dowsett for undertaking PRO duties; he was assisted by other members of the South Australian Radio Yacht Club.

European IOM Championship
Congratulations to Brad Gibson on winning the 2016 IOM European Championships in Vitoria Spain. After a tough week he managed to pip close friend and Birthday Boy Rob Walsh to 2nd place by 1 point.
Going in to the last race Rob was in pole position and looked favourite to win, unfortunately for Rob his final race result was not good, with Brad taking the win and the title.
Despite poor sailing conditions, Brad’s tally of 4 race wins over the week was the best, so he obviously had the pace when conditions allowed and yet again the cream rose to the top with Rob and Brad fighting it out with Alexis Carre, Olivier Cohen, Guillermo Beltri and Zvonko Jelacic all the way to the finish.Read more ...
