TAS RM Championship - 15/16 October

19oct

The 2016 Tasmanian Marblehead Championships were held over the weekend with conditions on Day 1 a complete contrast from Day 2. Conditions on Saturday started out just about ideal with mid 20's temperatures and a solid top end B to C Rig breeze of around 10 to 15 knots for Race 1, however the prevailing NNW'er increased steadily throughout the day and after the first few races, changing down to the smallest rig was a necessity. Racing for the day was abandoned after Race 7 when a 45 knot plus bullet lifted spray and placed boats and equipment at risk of damage. At the end of Day 1, I held a 3 point lead with 10 points from Michael Hickman in second place on countback from John Hall, both on 13 points.

​Day 2 started out cool and overcast with a light NNW'er and maximum sail area the only choice. Conditions fluctuated throughout the day with times when the breeze increased enough for B Rig, only to drop out again resulting in rig changes back to A. The last few races saw the wind swing around to the south. Fifteen races were completed for the day making the championship a 22 race event.

​Final results and it was back to back titles for yours truly on 45 points with John Hall runner up with 49 points and Michael Hickman finishing in third place overall, 1 point behind John with 50 points. Racing was close all weekend with 5 out of the 7 skippers competing taking line honours. A big thank you to those that assisted with PRO duties.

Stuart Dawes.
