South Queensland 10R Championships 2019

10R1

We all arrived at a stunning Morning at the Kimberley Lake at Banora Point where the Twin towns Radio Modellers hosted the South East Queensland 10 R Championships.

12 ( I think) maybe 13 boats enjoyed a fresh but cold breeze in the morning which from time to time challenged A rigs,  although  the occasional thought to maybe change to a B rig kept us guessing for most of the day but most stayed with the A rig and toughed it out as the occasional gusts made for some interesting racing.

The positions were close up to a very tasty lunch supplied by the host Club with a special thankyou to Richard Harrydenes wife for her cooking.

After lunch the wind settled in and supplied us with a fast and challenging afternoon of racing.10Rwinners2019

Bill Clancy (PRO) and the team from Twin Towns should be congratulated for running an event that allowed for competitive fair and fast racing for these formula 1’s of the Radio Yachting world.

10R32019Yet to be confirmed but I was told that Ben Taylor with his Sanger the eventual runaway winner won 7 races with Andy Holly with a Brand new Sanger came second with 6 wins and Frank Russell coming in for the third place with some very consistent racing.

A special congratulation to these three place getters but also to all the competitors as everyone enjoyed the spirit of how the day was run and won and a huge thankyou to all those that travelled to come up and compete  you are welcome back anytime..

We are proud to say that 10 R racing in Queensland is healthy and this competition  proved exactly that  Bring on upcoming events.
