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.

Scott Condie (KBRYC) again showed his prowess by winning the event with his borrowed Trance design on 13 points from 13 wins and 3 drops, and was awarded the MAZDA Trophy for his efforts. Second place went to Stephen Sedgman (CMYC) sailing a SANGA on 30 points. Third place went to Garry Bromley (KBRYC) sailing a Diamond on 57 points. See below for full results.

The racing was pleasing to watch with the sailors in the spirit of competiveness without aggression. The was a lot of interaction between the sailors advising the others of their intentions early, and this lead to minimal intervention by the race committee with any indiscretions on the water being acknowledged and penalties performed in timely manner. All races were started without a single OCS call ,even though there many boats was just centimetres behind the line at start signal – well done guys!

Another feature was the minimal number of retirements due to equipment failures, testimony to good boat preparation and maintenance.
Thanks to the KoBSC team for making this a successful event, Brian Jackson for feeding the sailors, Jon Pinkerton for response boat duties, Ralf Steyer and Ralph Skea for acting as observers
Good sailing for the rest of this year’s 10R series.
