NSW RC Laser State Championships - 19th August 2018

21aug18

Well Guys, how should I describe it? How about hard; harsh; difficult? They are the more pleasant words I could use to describe the conditions. It was a day where you just had to hang in there.

 The day for the NSW State RC Laser Championships started out at Dobroyd Aquatic Club feeling fairly benign. There was a cold westerly wind blowing, so an up and down course in front of the deck was set up with a clearance mark set at the windward mark together with and indicator mark to give some size to the zone around the mark. There were a couple of B sails, but a majority of C sails were set for the first race; and then things started going downhill from there. Significant wind shifts occurred through the day; particularly “effective” in the last seconds of the countdown to some of the starts.

A quick decent with everyone on to D sails; and it just got worse from there. The problem was not so much the strength of the wind, but the depth of the lulls between the darkies going through. You would fall into a hole and be essentially stationary with the D sail providing very little assistance in keeping the boat moving. A few C sails re-appeared later in the day more in hope than with logic.
