2016 PERTH CLASSIC

Sunday July 24 dawned clear, cold and calm. 13 skippers turned up at Jackadder Lake in Woodlands to participate in the 2016 Perth Classic. It was clear that there was no hurry to get going, as the water was mirror-like.

While we waited for a breeze, the model ship club kept us entertained with their scale battleships sliding around the buoys. Unfortunately, they didn’t re-enact any naval battles or anything really exciting like that.

The Race Officer team of Rob Mews, Hub Bell and Warren Rock set a course and racing got underway about 11.00am in a gentle easterly zephyr, which puffed and panted, disappeared and reappeared somewhere else. It was challenging to get a reasonable start line and windward course.

WA ERIC FISHER A Class Trophy

15jun

Eric Fisher was a member of the Perth Radio Sailing Club since the mid-1970s. He was a competitive skipper, winning numerous State Championships in both the A Class and Ten Rater classes. Eric was also a fantastic clubman. He constantly helped others, whether it be by assisting with building or repairing boats, advice on setting up boats or doing things for the club. At the age of 91 years, Eric sadly passed away this year. His company at the lake will be greatly missed.

Last year, the club inaugurated the Eric Fisher A Class Trophy. This year, it was held on Saturday June 11 at Jackadder Lake. From this day forwards it will be known as the Eric Fisher Memorial A Class Regatta.

WA IOM South West Championships

13151487 1281786045184012 2667547358475799463 n

The South West Championships were held at the Provence Estate in Busselton, over the weekend of May 7/8 2016. The Geograph Radio Sailing Club put on a terrific weekend at their new lake.

The lake is a great radio sailing venue, with uninterrupted wind, deep water without weed. The prevailing winds blow along the length of the lake.

As is usual in Western Australia, the regatta was sailed in two fleets. The Championship fleet sailed for ranking points, whilst the Cup fleet was an opportunity for skippers to participate in the event without pressure. Skippers in the Championship fleet spend time helping the skippers in the Cup fleet by assisting with boat tune and coaching.
