WA 10R Championship - 16th October

On Sunday October 16 at Champion Lakes Radio Yacht Club, the Ten Rater fleet gathered to establish the 2016 Western Australian State Champion. The forecast was for mid range winds gradually dropping towards the latter part of the afternoon.

Thirteen skippers fronted for the day. Race officer Hub Bell and his able assistant Rod Moss had us all organized and on the water at the advertised starting time of 10.30am. There were a number of shifts early in the regatta which made setting the course a tricky task. Hub kept on top of the windshifts and made sure the courses were fair. There was only one abandoned race in which the fleet sailed to the first mark on a reach.

Out of the blocks and straight into the lead with three firsts and three seconds in the first six races was Sean Wallis, sailing a Diamond. His starting was first class, reaching the top mark in great shape regularly.

Graeme Howie sailing an Aero, and Rosco Bennett (Diamond) did what they could to stay in touch with Sean in the early part of the day, with consistent finishing positions. The wind gradually settled in to blow from the south-west. It strengthened slightly around lunch time and skippers were starting to think about a change in rigs.

WA A Class State Championship - 21st August

25aug3

On Sunday August 21, the Western Australian A Class State Championship regatta was held at Jackadder Lake in Woodlands Perth. A small but very competitive fleet arrived at the lake early in the morning to find that the wind was drifting in and out from the north east.

Forecasts of rain and storms had been pretty consistent for the past few days. However, the sky was clear, and it’s not very common for rain to come from that direction. Unfortunately, two skippers were unable to attend on the day, which reduced the fleet to seven skippers.

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.
