Overseas Results

New Zealand IOM Nationals – Christchurch, 6-8 October 2017

Thirty six boats contested the NZ IOM Nationals held on Lake Rua, Christchurch, which was hosted by the Christchurch Model Yacht Club. This included two Aussie entries of Russell Gray from Qld and myself from WA. After an overnight flight via Auckland I arrived to a relatively clear day and after a quick nap headed down to the lake to undertake the measurement & registration for the event and have a quick sail. While the sun may have been shining it ended up being an extremely quick sail with the wind chill factor cold enough to freeze the nuts off a brass monkey leading to a prompt return to the warmth of the hotel room.

Travelling to NZ with boat box and rig box saw the need to rent one of the radio yachties most desired vehicles, the mighty Nissan Wingroad! It’s choice bro’. Fully loaded it was off to the regatta for a full day of racing.

Day one of the regatta saw the sun shining but an extremely light breeze blowing across the lake and with the seeding decided it was race time! After a relatively good start in my seeding race I was positioned well and with just a mark rounding followed by a short beat to the finish I felt that I was on a good thing sitting in second place only to be becalmed and run down by the fleet to finish 11th and start my regatta with what I thought might be my drop!

I was a bit disappointed but needed to work my way back into A fleet and start to ascend the ladder, this was short lived. Nearing the first windward mark my boat stopped dead in the water most likely hitting a bag or weed and by the time I was clear of the dreaded item I was last around the windward mark and only managed to fight back through the fleet to add a 28th to my scorecard. Things were now looking grim but at least the sun was shining. Russ pretended to feel my disappointment but I think he was having a good giggle on the inside?

By now, Ian Vickers had sailed two stella races with two race wins against my combined score of 39 points and I began to question why I had even made the effort to get here. Needless to say it wasn’t time for giving up and with the move to A fleet by race 3 the results improved with a 2, 5, 6 to finish the day and positioned in ninth overall.
