VIC IOM Championship - 29/30th July

17augVIC1

Victorian IOM State Championship

Held on 29th & 30th July 2017 at Edgewater Lake

With two late withdrawals due to illness, 17 skippers greeted the event traveling as far as W.A., Qld., S.A. and Victoria.  The event commenced at 10:00 am in strong northerly conditions, straight down the lake and apart from occasions where racing had to stop due to the safety of the boat crew, all skippers handled the conditions extremely well and all skippers finished in each heat, a great effort considering some of our new skippers had never sailed with their # 3 rig, for some remarkable photos taken, a big thank you to John Boys once again for his ability to capture the moments. https://www.flickr.com/photos/jaybee35/albums/72157687080412135

Day two saw a complete reversal of wind and conditions, with the breeze from the north west and all skippers sailing with # 1 rigs, apart from 3 skippers having winch issues, the event was sailed with good spirit and sportsmanship, no issues requiring mediation and consistency ruled the event.

S/QLD 10R Class Championship - 13th August

9 boats sailed in the 10R championship today. The event was hosted by the Brisbane Radio Yacht Club and held at their Eagleby venue.

Winds were very light and variable and only 2 races were sailed before lunch time was called. The first 2 races were won by Greg Torpy with Frank Russell not far behind. A total of 12 races were sailed for the day. After lunch, the conditions were not much better and Ian Ashe was finding it difficult to set a course. The wind direction was changing and at least 2 races had down wind finishes, which confused a few of the spectators, (and competitors)

The 2 top placegetters managed to share 1st place 9 times so you were doing very well if you could keep up with Greg and Frank. No major mishaps except one sailor managed to hit the last buoy head on and managed to dismast himself in the process.

Eddie Cowell Perpetual Trophy Regatta - 4/6th August 2017

Nick Day 3 7Another successful year for the Eddie Cowell Perpetual Trophy, the event seems to be getting bigger every year and this event was no different with close to 50 Skippers attending the event.

We had competitors from all major states, our friends from across the ditch New Zealand and some from as far away as Singapore and Malaysia. It's always nice to have an international flavour and talking to some of the Kiwis, there will be more coming over next year, there's also a rumour that the world champ Zvonko Jelacic from Croatia might be attending next year's event too. There is also talk of a name change to the Eddie Cowell International which has a nice ring to it.

2017 Central Qld IOM Championships Story

We had nowhere to sail.CQLD IOM Champs 8th 9th July 2017 Nick LINDSLEY 56

We were tossing up between the University Lake – full of weeds which had just been harvested and then the Council guys broke the hydraulics while trying to haul the weeds out of the lake and no clear date for the repair to be completed,

Burrum Heads – too far to travel both days and then setup everything both days and Madsens Rd Lake – still trying to make their insurance company accept that they would be covered by the QRYA Insurance coverage without that being specified in writing anywhere.

6 weeks before the event we finally got the approval (while setting up for John McIntosh’s Birthday Party) that we could sail on The Springs Lake – a new R.V. Park being constructed at Madsens Rd, Nikenbah just South of Pialba Hervey Bay Qld.

With nothing yet in place at this building site it would be a sprint to the start line of the Championships.

NSW RM GP Rd 2 - 23rd Jul

On Sunday, the 23rd July the second round of the Marblehead GP Series was held at Mount Penang Gardens, Kariong and hosted by the Northern Mariners.

25jul

Six enthusiastic skippers turned up to race, Maurie Fletcher and Paul Ziems sailing Boogies, Andrew Sands sailing his Paradox, Glenn Kinsela sailing a Starkers, Patrick O’Donnell sailing the Dreadnought and Garry Bromley sailing his Prime Number.

The weather was fine and sunny and the breeze was a very nice 10 to 15 knot westerly. A windward and return course of three laps was set using the start line as the leeward gate and a run to the finish on the final lap. Racing got under way after a short delay at about 10.20am.

NSW 10R Interclub Shield RD3

The Handicap regatta that was planned to be raced at Walka Water Works was going to be cancelled due to the course having a weed problem, now wanting the event to go ahead a couple of SCMYC members decided to have the event venue changed with the concurrence of the President so the event could go ahead. Bob Tonge, Grant Waring and short time member Phil Page along with the help of the Horizon Model Yacht club managed to put the event on.
 
Although poorly supported by the SCRYC members and most other clubs the event went ahead in testing conditions of westerly breeze up to 20 knots and C Rig all day, the dedicated supporters of our class who came to the event were well rewarded with some spectacular sailing and racing in a big swell and a large slop with huge troughs and consistent nose dives, all in all it was just a great day of 10r racing by those who keep our sport going through thick and thin.

25jun17

A Class GP 2 Report 25 June 2017 - Hosted by Koonawarra Bay Sailing Club

This event was sailed at the Koonawarra Bay Sailing Club on Sunday 25 June 2017. The weather at this event was sunny but quite blustery from the westerly direction in the morning with gusts at 12 knots, and all 8 entrants opting for A rigs. After an hour the wind increased to 14 knots with gusts of 17 knots meaning most entrants downsized their rigs. Course was set as port hand windward / leeward and the 8 entrants sailed just 8 heats before lunch was taken. Unfortunately Glenn Kinsela retired early due to various problems with his “new” Stiletto which showed potential early in the series.

WA 10R Challenge - 21st May 2017

P5210027

Champion Lakes Ten Rater Challenge 2017.

Today was a wet and squally winter’s day. The sky would be blue for a while with a 6 to 8 knot wind blowing, but then a front would come through and the associated gusts building to 15 knots. After a while, the front would pass, and we were back into the lighter winds again. Luckily, the wind direction was from the south-west, which at Champion Lakes makes for reasonable steady winds without too many shifts.

Sean Wallis came down to be the race officer and he did a really good job. He has clearly been watching the IOM Worlds making rapid changes of course, setting up 4 top marks as well as having the “good start” call off to a tee. He was itching to call a “uniform flag”, but we didn’t give him the opportunity!

Unfortunately only seven skippers were able to attend, with a couple of our regular skippers away. Four Diamonds, a Prizm, a NRW and a Sanga were in the fleet.

TAS RM Southern Championship - 21st May

210517 26

Sunday 21st May 2017
Well, the dam turned on a cracker of a day with steady northerly winds gusting to 10 knots greeting the six starters. B rigs were selected for the morning’s session before changing up to A rigs after lunch as the wind lightened off. However the northerly wind of around 6 knots still made for an afternoon of excellent racing conditions. Ray Joyce’s Katana hit its stride, winning 10 of the 15 races sailed, showing some dominant boat speed. Weed was only a slight problem but not enough to seriously affect results.
 
John Hall sailed consistently to take out second, with Lisa Blackwood third on the podium. So congratulations to the placegetters, and many thanks to the PRO, David Murfet.

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

Roger Paul photos - click here

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.
