South East Queensland 10R regatta - June 17th 2018

See Link here for Youtube Channel Videos of the Event

The South East Queensland 10R regatta - June 17th 2018 attracted a diverse range of yachts, from the latest Sanga design, to a wide selection of other designs, both new and old.  The wind ranged from very light in the morning, to blustery by the end of the day. By the late afternoon, several boats had suffered gear failure and were forced to retire, due to the strong winds


The strong breezes were making for some wild rides on the downwind leg, and a few high speed tangles at the the bottom gate.  Special thanks goes to Laurie Hinchcliffe, who organized the event. Thanks also to Barry Hall and Roger Margot, who manned the rescue boat. Trent who put on a great barbecue lunch and Ian Ashe who was the PRO once again for the event. Thanks also to the other club members who gave up their Sunday and pitched in on the day.


Greg Torpy's new Sanga was the on-form boat on the day, winning all but one race, in which he placed second. Greg finished up with a score of 13 points.
Trevor Fisher sailed hard and consistently all day, and captured second spot, with 33 points.  Laurie came in third, just behind Trevor, on 35 points.


All in all, a very successful and enjoyable event, characterized by good racing and even tempers from the competing skippers.
