SA RM State Championships - 22/23rd October

Winners are grinners; SA Marblehead 2018 State Championship
L to R Brett Osborne, Scott Condie and Ray Joyce
 

Wow; what a great weekend of Marblehead competition; best fleet size in the Country for many years for the Marblehead’s.

Twenty five entries with only one non-starter. Due to the number of competitors the Heat Management System was used which was a new experience to some who had never sailed in an event with so many competitors.

Hart’s Mill was the scheduled venue which provides a great vantage point for competitors and is the venue that has been used in Adelaide to conduct major events and the 2016 Nationals. Dry launching from a large pontoon which is accessed by a long gently sloping ramp makes for easy launching and retrieval.

Day one saw racing commence at near the scheduled starting time after registration and Measurement Certificates were sighted and the breeze settled so that a course could be set. Race Officer “Johno” Johnson kept the racing organised and smoothly organised throughout the day. Lunch was provided; great Hamburgers and steak sandwiches, a cut above Subway fare.

SA RM Bournville Trophy - 9th September

12SEPa

Sunday the 9th September was the scheduled day for competition for the Bournville Trophy.

The day was forecast as 20 degrees with winds falling from 15 k in the morning to 5 k at sunset. A great day for sailing at Harts Mill, Port Adelaide. The change of venue was sanctioned as the original venue became unsuitable due to the weed problem.

The RO Johno Johnson commenced racing at the scheduled time and concluded at 15:30. A rigs were the order of the day. An incident free days racing ensued.

Racing was conducted in a good natured way thanks to the cooperation of all skippers. There was no aggressive or loud comments made between competitors which made the day all the more enjoyable.

SA 2018 10R State Title - 8th September

SA 10R

After a grey winter in Adelaide, the skippers and race officials enjoyed a pleasant spring day for the SA 2018 10R State Title. Brilliant sunshine and a moderate NW breeze persisted all day at Tiranna Way, West Lakes.

This event was brought forward to coincide with the Bournville Trophy, a one-day ranking event for RM skippers, to entice more interstate skippers to come to Adelaide for a full weekend of sailing. It worked: there were 4 interstate yachts and 9 local yachts on the line at the start of the first heat.

Throughout the day there were minor changes in wind strength and direction. Most skippers kept using their A rigs, although a few changed down to B rigs for some afternoon heats. Two early withdrawals and minor damage to other yachts from time to time meant there were between 9 and 11 starters in most heats.

South Australian RC Laser State Titles, Mawson Lakes, 10th June 2018

sa laserThis year’s titles were our second ever titles and our first to be sailed at our home territory of Mawson Lakes. We again had a healthy clan of eight Victorian sailors, which when combined with some of our local fleet gave a total of eighteen boats. The briefing was held in very calm conditions, but the forecast was for a 10 knot northeaster and within about half an hour of the briefing the wind arrived. The six races sailed before lunch were all sailed with A rigs, although nose-diving became an increasing problem as the morning progressed. It also quickly emerged that Scott Fleming was a clear leader this year, as with the exception of one brilliant race by Jurgen Luther, Scott won four or five of the other races. Scott’s boat speed and his ability to pick wind shifts in the fluky conditions separated him from Scott Mitchell and the rest of the fleet.
