QLD IOM Championship - 6/7th Jun 2015

The Queensland State IOM Titles were decided over a series of 32 races on Lake Curralea over the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June 2015.

The racing was conducted in near perfect weather conditions with temperatures of 26 - 28 degrees.

Winds on Saturday were moderate to fresh once the breeze settled in after the first 2 heats and on Sunday light to moderate conditions were enjoyed by the  fleet.

At the end of the series, Scott Backhouse from the NSW club of Kogarah Bay, sailing a beautify prepared BritPoP was the clear winner with Geoffrey Miller from Club Kawana, who was second and Aaron Farrar from Gladstone who was third.

Our congratulations are extended to these skippers and all others who contributed to a friendly and incident free series.
The event attracted considerable attention from Townsville residents and our club appreciated the opportunity to host the series and promote radio sailing in North Queensland.

We thank the QRYA for selecting our club to host the event.
Finally the club greatly appreciated the huge assistance provided by both Ian Ashe and David Black, Ian's guidance as PRO ensured the event proceeded without incident and David's knowledge and skills as scorer and his advice on rules and recovery took much of the pressure off our club members.
