SA 10R State Championships - 2nd October

4oct

Despite all the rough weather that we have been having in South Australia of late today was another excellent sailing day. Took a little time for the wind to settle at the start but it stayed in the SW with enough variation in wind strength to make it interesting; Occasional cloud but no rain.

Unfortunately with only 5 entries we were unable to have the race run as a Rating event however the South Australian 10R Title was up for grabs. The racing soon settled down to a battle between Tim Arland and Alan Gold with Tim becoming the Title holder by 1 point. Congratulations Tim.

Ian Backler with his P3 showed that there is still fight in the old dog with a first, a second and 4 third places but despite a DNF and a DNS in the last two races was a creditable third.

Frank Brookes despite still getting used to his new 10R showed that it had the speed but a couple of non-finishes in the last two races dropped him down a few points. Grant Murray our visitor from the SE club showed what a good RM can do but again non-finishes were a problem.

Thanks to Brian Walsh for his PRO efforts today. He earned his points early with course changes due to wind variation. Thanks also to those who volunteered their services to assist Brian.
