Mackay Model Mariners practicing for the next DF95 Interclub


The Mackay Model Mariners had a reasonably steady south easterly last Saturday to tune up the DF95s for the next round of the North Queensland DF95 Interclub Series.  From what I saw they will be very competitive.

The club sails in a lake adjacent to the Andergrove Caravan Park that has the ability to cater for all wind directions.  The club is in the process of building membership with the one-design DF95s.  Fortuneately for the visiting QRYA Secretary there happened to be a spare working boat available and the opportunity was gratefully accepted.

The locals kindly let me win a couple of races before reminding me that the water was theirs and relegated me to the back of the fleet for the next few!  Very considerate I thought.

The club sails from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and clearly visitors are welcome.  Thank you to Ross Anderson and Mackay MM members for looking after a wandering sailor in need of a Radio Sailing fix.
