Marblehead Queensland Championships 2018

Eight Marbleheads took to the water at Newport for the Qld Championship.

There were 3 entrants from Springfield Lakes, Trevor Fisher, John Heard and Bruce McLaren. Trevor is the “expert” Marblehead sailor in this trio and was expected to do well.

The day started with very little wind and the promised wind stayed away all day. The lack of wind made the sailing very competitive and hard work.

Jason Nesbith was convincing and won the day with consistent results and Greg Torpy not that far behind in second place. Trevor Fisher managed to lead in a few races and put a lot of pressure on the top 2 place-getters. Trevor eventually took out a well deserved third place.

Many thanks to the Moreton Radio Yacht Squadron who provided excellent facilities and good management of the day in trying conditions.  Thanks also to Peter Morris for his Race Management on the day and to Ian Ashe the QRYA Event Coordinator.
