NSW RC Laser Championship - 21st August

The NSW State Championships were held on Sunday 21 August 2016 at Dobroyd Aquatic Club together with Round 2 of the 2016 NSW RC Laser Series.

We picked an almost perfect sunny day, with a breeze as well for the morning start. There were 20 boats that lined up for the first race, so it was always going to be sailing in close proximity to other boats. Because of the number of entries, the starting line was extended significantly to what we are used to; but appeared to work well for the most part in opening up the fleet. The first couple of races were run with the windward mark set well out into the bay, and it proved to be too far, so it was brought in to a much closer and more comfortable position for the sailors.

The course was set for a north westerly breeze, but it started swinging for the day, and there was never a perfect course that could be set. After the lunch break the course was re-set for westerly winds, but even then, the wind continued to swing, with flurries and holes on the course.

We started out on B sails, then went to A sails, but it was difficult to get the right settings for the varying winds throughout the day.

We were able to run 11 races in the day, together with a practice race before the start of the competition – a good number under the circumstances.

I think everyone came away with a hard luck story or two, but at the end of the day Graham Brown from DAC came out the clear winner, with Jason Rootes from LMRYC well sailed into second, and Noel McPherson from DAC in third place.

We would like to thank our PRO Paul Martin, and everyone who helped out to make the day a success.

Round 3 of the RC Laser Series will be sailed at Grahamstown Dam on September25, and everyone is encouraged to enter the day.
