QLD EC12 Championship 2015

The weather bureau predicted 10-15kts SW swinging to SE and dropping out later in the day.

What really happened was a light Westerly which swing to the North after lunch and then dropped out around 3.00 pm. So much for science!!

For a class which has come and gone as far as the ARYA is concerned, there still seem to be a fair degree of enthusiasm for them, and 9 entries were received. Unfortunately, Yeoman had to withdraw due to ill health. So 8 skippers competed on the day.

It has to be said that most of these boats are around 30 years old (mostly Sorensens) and yet they can still provide enjoyable and competitive sailing. A shallow draft and a keel design which is weed proof are additional features making these boats a joy to sail, especially in light conditions. A register I have suggests that there were 48 boats built and sold just in Queensland alone, so there must be quite a number tucked away. So if you have one, or know where one is, please let me know because there is some interest being shown by a number of people.

Competition commenced at 10:00 am, and by 3:30 21 races had been sailed. The results were very much settled by this time so racing was concluded.

The light conditions made everyone work for their placings, although it was clear quite early on that Gary Taylor and Peter Morris were the ones to catch, and so it remained all day.

A very pleasant winter’s day with plenty of sun and good manners on the water made for an event enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to Gary on his win, and thanks to David Black for keeping score, and to Dale and Dennis for the photos.
