WA IOM Championship - 25/26th November 2017

4dec

The 2018 WA  IOM Championship was held over two days with greatly  varying conditions which  tested  both the sailors and race officer Warren Rock assisted by Bob Paton.

The first day started in A rig moderate conditions in lumpy seas on the Swan river. 

Starting well proved difficult for both of the fleets in the 17 boat field due to the waves and close proximity of the shoreline. Experience sailors found themselves sometime in an OCS or stalled on the line at the last moment sting themselves up for a long chase to the front runners.

It became apparent after some top sailors found themselves in trouble at first windward mark with  boats washed sideways putting themselves into contact or falling short.  Mark rounding judgement was being tested and many fell short.

After several races the south west wind increased into B rig conditions with all boats changing rigs. Exciting sailing at the top of B rig kept everyone on their tippy tows with Sean Wallis with his V10 showing his speed and good tactics and Glenn Dawson taking some wins and consistently in the first three places.   After a slow start Ross Bennet was able to get into the small numbers but cheated himself out of a certain first place when leading at the final race of the day being passed on a wave at the penultimate moment by the good captain sailing the V8 when in Ross’s own words he ‘ wrongly ‘waggled instead of wiggled’ trying to stay on the plane.

WA RC Laser Championship - 29th October 2017

WALAAER2

The 2017 WA RC Laser State Titles have been run and won.
A steady south to south westerly breeze greeted WAnderers Radio Sailing Club at the South Perth lake and it stayed in nearly all day.

All boats started with A rigs for the first few races then, as the breeze strengthened, B rigs were favoured by all skippers. With pretty tight racing throughout the day, the last few races determined the places. Various problems hampered defending champion Dave Pruden’s start to the day and he had to call it a day after 5 races.

A big congratulations to Rod Popham who came out on top, 3 points in front of Andy Cummins in 2nd with Dave Bedford 3rd, beating Adam Viney onto the podium by 1 point.

WA 10R Championship - 15th October 2017

The 2017 Ten Rater States for WA were held today by the Champion Lakes Radio Yacht Club out at Champion Lakes. It was a great day of Ten Rater sailing. The breeze took a while to settle in, but our Race Officer, Bruce Robins, had us on the water by 11.00am.

The fleet consisted of 4 Diamonds, a Prizm and a Graphito from Graeme Bantock, an Aero and Sanga from Steve Segemen and one of Lincoln McDowell’s Blades.

Unfortunately, Ray Bassett managed to leave a fairly vital part of his boat at home, so was a non-starter for the day. Simon Ellis and Phil Brown had their Blade and Graphito in the fleet, which was great to see. Steve Grey almost got his new Blade ready in time, but was also missing the same vital bit of kit as Ray – the mast stub and boom.
