S/QLD RC Laser Championship - 18th Oct 2015

2015 South Queensland RC Laser Championship

Although the fleet was a disappointing 9 the racing was keen. In the morning everyone used their B sail in the E –SE breeze and at lunch time Peter Burford held a slight lead over Malcolm Kampe from Ray Nasmith. During lunch the breeze freshened and 5 boats went out with C rigs. After one race everyone went down to the smaller sail!  While Peter and Malcolm shared 17 firsts for the day, Ray won twice and David and John each scored a first.

With one race to go, there was nothing between the two top boats and the result depended on the last race of the day. Peter had some sort of brain snap and messed up his last start leaving Malcolm to sail away to a very deserved win to become the South Queensland RC Laser Champion for 2015.

The officials, led by PRO Allan Walker, did an excellent job over the whole day. There were numerous course changes, multiple collisions and frequent contact with the buoys and the marshals seemed to see, and call, them all. The only cross words from the sailors seem to be those directed at themselves. An excellent regatta with very deserved winners.
