The BRYC DF65 Open Series Round 6 24.09.2017 was held yesterday and once again the winds were very favorable for us as you can see by the picture of the flags. The BRYC DF65 Open Series Round 6 24.09.2017 was held yesterday and once again the winds were very favorable for us as you can see by the picture of the flags. 

We had a turnout of 13 skippers and the club would like to thank those that travelled a distance to come and compete with us, thanks fellas.The gentleman with the dog whose name is “Kimba” came all the way from Russell Island and travelled via ferry so this just goes to show that the event next Sunday at Karragarra Island can easily be accessed with your Dragon in tow as well. 

The winds remained fairly constant all day and there was some terrific sailing to be seen. We had 3 new skippers on the water and I guess they may have been fairly nervous but everyone was made aware of their presence on the course and all possible courtesies were extended to them.

I hope you enjoyed yourselves guys. Congratulations to Mike Jeffreys, Mick Wall, and Ian Ashe for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd. It doesn’t matter where you placed the main thing at BRYC is that everyone had a great time and it was pleasant to see the newbies getting no end of help at the beginning of the day with their boats. 

Till next time stay above the water.

Paul.

There were 2 new boats Glenn with a Stilletto & Iain with a Gothica (Frank Russell design) both had their teething problems hence the show this. Bob had his scorpion going quite well at times. Ray had rudder servo problem early on, a new fixed that problem.It was good to see a  good turn up of A Class boats on the water and we hope to see more interest in the future.

Newport Classic IOM Regatta - 2nd Sep

 Report on the Newport Classic

The Newport Classic IOM Regatta attracted 26 entrants from 8 clubs from Central QLD to Northern NSW.  The Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron revived the event after a few years’ hiatus and the response exceeded the expectations. Recent improvements in the local facilities, including landscaping of the foreshore, cafe’ coffee shop, serviced toilets and a floating pontoon, deemed the location too good not to share with the Radio Sailing community.

The weather conditions were exactly as forecast with the 8 knot southerly at registration time, dropping and clocking to the east, then to northeast as the morning progressed.  The first seeding race (up on the QRYA Youtube channel with others) was run in zero to five knots from a variety of directions.  The boat crew and Race Officer (Ian Ashe) were very busy in the run-up to lunch. 

Lunch was at the adjacent Izba Café where we had seating in the shade with a view of the racecourse.  The lunch break started at 11:45 to allow the breeze to settle and it had the desired effect when racing recommenced at 12:30 p.m.

The breeze stabilised to 8 to 10 knots from the northeast and the buoys shifted little over the remainder of the day.  The weather was perfect for a competitive and enjoyable IOM A-rig event.

The full results are on the QRYA website. Greg Torpy (Wynnum Manly MRYC) convincingly took first place 10 points clear of Arron Farrar (Gladstone RCYC) with Doug Allen (Club Kawana RY) just two further points away.

Cr. James Houghton (MBRC) is the council representative for area and he presented the trophies to the winners.  James said he was impressed with the fleet and the sport itself, committing to further council support for the club and next year’s event.

The Newport Classic was supported by

The Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron and competitors are very grateful for their support.

BRYC DF65 Open Series RD 5 - 27th August 2017

BRYC DF65 Open Series Round 5 27.08.2017 1This Sunday just passed saw Round 5 go off with plenty of finicky breezes which ranged from almost “B” rig time to just about a glass finish on the pond. We had a turn out of 9 skippers and a little helper giving Andrew Wilson a helping hand as well.

The young lady is Andrews Daughter and she is certainly showing a very keen interest in the sport, which is what we’d love to see more of as a Club, is more younger members joining in the sport, particularly at the moment with some excellent bargains to be had with these fantastic little yachts. Maybe it’s time to invest in a trophy cabinet, Andrew !!. Everyone as always behaved and penalties were done without even being asked. There were a lot of laughs with finishes being neck and neck a lot of the time particularly when the breezes kicked up.

Carbrook is slowly becoming an ideal venue to hold events and there are talks of more events to be held here and the sooner we can get a container to lock our equipment at Eagleby we will have two high quality venues at our disposal. Please enjoy the photos and until next time please stay above the water.

10 Rater South East Queensland Championships 13th August 2017 2

Click for more by Peter Newman

Yesterday saw the BRYC , Eagleby venue hold the 10 Rater South East Queensland Championships 2017. We had a very good turn out of 9 skippers taking these majestic vessels to the water. They never cease to amaze people with their graceful appearance in the water,and,and I’m not talking about the skippers it’s the 10 Raters I’m talking about.The weather was wonderful with mild temperatures ,plenty of sunshine and best of all some great winds, which while being intermittent still provided enough for plenty of action.

We provided some beautiful hand made trophies crafted from timber from Blackbutt by one of our newest members, Mr. Ray Aisbett, pictures shown. Thanks very much Ray. As usual an event such as this takes a lot of preparation and organizing by volunteers not only from our club but anyone that had the inclination to help. You know who you are and we thank you.

Congratulations to Greg, Frank, and John on obtaining 1st, 2nd and 3rd.We had quite a few comments on how pleasant this venue is being in a country like setting and free of traffic noise we are looking at the costs etc of improving this venue further with our main focus being on obtaining a shipping container to lock away the gear and some sought of permanent shade. If you can help in any way please feel free to contact Clive Ball or Richard Jaffray. Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.Thank you and as always“Stay above the water”.

Report #2

9 boats sailed in the 10R championship today. The event was hosted by the Brisbane Radio Yacht Club and held at their Eagleby venue.

Winds were very light and variable and only 2 races were sailed before lunch time was called. The first 2 races were won by Greg Torpy with Frank Russell not far behind. A total of 12 races were sailed for the day. After lunch, the conditions were not much better and Ian Ashe was finding it difficult to set a course. The wind direction was changing and at least 2 races had down wind finishes, which confused a few of the spectators, (and competitors)

The 2 top placegetters managed to share 1st place 9 times so you were doing very well if you could keep up with Greg and Frank. No major mishaps except one sailor managed to hit the last buoy head on and managed to dismast himself in the process.

Trevor Fisher had intermittent radio problems and finally had to retire and miss the last 4 races.

Congratulations to the Winner Greg Torpy on 13 pts, 2nd Frank Russell on 21 pts and 3rd John Musgrave on 37 pts.

A big thank you to David Black for scoring, Ian Ashe for doing the PRO duties, and to the Brisbane Radio Yacht Club and the volunteers and observers that helped run the event.
