15sep2

Six A Class yachts lined up for the first race, the winds were blowing steady from the North West for most of the day.

Peter Morris again set the pace from the beginning a d it was up to the remainder of the fleet to sort out the minor places.

Peter Morris won the trophy on 14 points while John Heard came in second on 29 points and Jason Nasmith came in third on 37 points.

The course was set as a traditional triangle with a windward return.

There were seventeen races conducted during the day with 3 drops allowed.

It was great to see such great comradery between competitors.

QLD IOM Championships - 3-4th September 2016

Hosted by Paradise Radio Yacht Club at Emerald Lakes Parklands Carrara on the Gold Coast 3-4th September 2016.

Despite unfavourable weather forecasts that didn’t eventuate, another successful event concluded albeit with an expected entry reduced to 22 starters after 9 late withdrawals and “no shows”. The regatta was sailed in sunny weather over 2 days with 2 fleets under HMS.

Gusty and very shifty NW/W winds to over 25Km/hr meant B rig conditions for most of the first day until moderating to A rig late in the afternoon. The second day started late, waiting for the arrival of what became a very pleasant more steady SE A rig encounter with little need for course adjustment.

S/QLD 10R Championships - 13th August

sqld 01A good fleet of ten boats arrived at Emerald Lakes on Saturday the 13th. PRO Ian Ashe decided based on the wind prediction to race off the corner which was great decision as we had an area large enough for a full triangle where the 10r’s could really unwind.

The PRYC as usual did a great job setting up sun covers and setting the course.

Racing was underway shortly after 10:00 in a gusty shifty top of a rig breeze. Frank Russell’s Phoenix 6 immediately started to dominate showing excellent upwind speed and pointing using his heaviest ballast weight.

However Frank didn’t have it all his own way, with racing at times very close. Laurie Hinchcliff Aero 3 Mark Harris Paterson 1 showing good speed at times and both leading races.  Laurie’s efforts were not helped after lunch when he decided to change down to A minus rig which seemed to work well in the stronger winds but ultimately was not a good decision.

Forty-two skippers attended the Eddie Cowell Perpetual Trophy. It’s a credit to the organization and venue that sees the event growing in size each year and I am equally impressed by the caliber of the skippers attending and more so those who travel some considerable distances to participate.

Congratulations not only to the winners but to everyone who attended, I especially appreciate the time and effort it takes to run such a competition and equally important to thank all the skippers whom make the effort to attend, some even travelling interstate and from across the ditch.
