QLD RC Laser Championship 2015

The 2015 Queensland RC Laser Championship was won by Peter Burford after some keen racing.

The PRYC welcomed 11 starters to a really calm day at Emerald Lakes on Sunday, 26th July. PRO Bill Clancy could not get a race started until more than an hour after the advertised time and then there were only 3 completed  before the lunch break. A fourth heat was abandoned when the leading 4 boats were on the last leg and started drifting backwards. At this point, Linton Ward who had come from Cairns, was in  front having showed us all how to sail in really light weather.

After an extended break, sailing resumed in variable winds from the NW. The strength varied from near zero with occasional gusts up to about 8 knots which was enough to make many of the boats nosedive under their A rigs. Just when 2 competitors changed down to B rigs the breeze lightened again. The ‘fresher’ breezes in the afternoon suited Peter Burford, Barry Hill who finished second and Ross McKay, our lone visitor from the Sunshine Coast, who took home the Bronze medal.

Ray Nasmith won the first race then largely disappeared before winning the penultimate heat. David Page had gear trouble all day and eventually retired.

The Laser fleet wishes to thank the tireless club members and officials of the PRYC for staging another very successful regatta.

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.
