WA IOM Metro Championship - 6th November

8nov

2016 RSAWA Metropolitan Championships

The Metros were held at Champion Lakes in Perth on Sunday November 6. The day started out sunny and bright. Fortunately, we turned up to see that a south wester had already filled in, so rather than waiting all morning for a decent breeze, we were right into the racing.

The organizing team consisted of Race Officer Chris Woods, and his able assistants Andree Bennett, Uncle Rod Moss and Fred Webber. Luckily, the wind direction was straight up and down the lake, so Chris could set a long beat and downwind course.

The fleet consisted of 16 keen skippers, sailing a range of designs. Predominantly there were Vickers boats, with some V8s and V9s as well as Rosco’s new V10. Three Britpops, a couple of Cheinz and a Mojo, as well as a couple of others made up the fleet.

WA 10R Championship - 16th October

On Sunday October 16 at Champion Lakes Radio Yacht Club, the Ten Rater fleet gathered to establish the 2016 Western Australian State Champion. The forecast was for mid range winds gradually dropping towards the latter part of the afternoon.

Thirteen skippers fronted for the day. Race officer Hub Bell and his able assistant Rod Moss had us all organized and on the water at the advertised starting time of 10.30am. There were a number of shifts early in the regatta which made setting the course a tricky task. Hub kept on top of the windshifts and made sure the courses were fair. There was only one abandoned race in which the fleet sailed to the first mark on a reach.

Out of the blocks and straight into the lead with three firsts and three seconds in the first six races was Sean Wallis, sailing a Diamond. His starting was first class, reaching the top mark in great shape regularly.

Graeme Howie sailing an Aero, and Rosco Bennett (Diamond) did what they could to stay in touch with Sean in the early part of the day, with consistent finishing positions. The wind gradually settled in to blow from the south-west. It strengthened slightly around lunch time and skippers were starting to think about a change in rigs.
