Queensland Marblehead Championships 2019

MclassfleetWell the Qld Marblehead Champs have been run and won. After the first couple of races it was clear to see what the outcome of the two days will be.

The skippers from south of the border were certainly prepared for what mother nature was going to throw at us. The first day began with skippers electing to go straight to “B” rigs but with a lull in the breeze everyone elected to go to “A” rigs, this was to be a big mistake with the breeze coming back in and boats being flattened resulting in that heat being called off, the day continued on with “C” rigs.

Those skippers who were prepared for the stronger breezes chose to use “C2” rigs.

Day 2 saw skippers choosing “A” rigs for most of the day with the occasional change to “B” rigs. We managed to get 27 heats run over the two days.Mclasswinners2019group

A big thanks goes out to Ian Ashe, our PRO for the weekend and David Black our chief scorer, and of course, thanks to all the volunteers who helped out on the two days.
