Who will be the first DF95 Queensland Champion?

DF95sforStatesThis is the inaugural state championship for this class now that it has State Sanction and soon to be Nationally recognised. The fleet in Queensland has grown exponentially over the past 2 years with strong fleets on the Gold Coast, Moreton, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Whitsundays, Mackay, Townsville with some 120 boats registered in Qld and rising.

The event will be held over 2 days on the 5th and 6th October 2019 (Long Weekend Qld) and is being hosted by the Townsville RC Yachting club at their current sailing site , Lake Curralea. The club has been operating from this site for over 30 years and has shaded facilities and toilets and is more than strong enough to conduct the state championships. The site also has accommodation either side of it from Resort style hotel rooms (Mercure Townsville) to Caravan style bungalows all within walking distance of the venue. Skippers can drive (only 1345 kms from Brisbane) or fly (1.5 hours) and 10 minutes from airport.

As event organiser, I am endeavouring to have a recognised experienced PRO and scorer to assist, as we may be using the recently ARYA approved Simple Heat Racing System (SHRS) for the first time in Qld RC Sailing history. I have been directed by the Australian DF Radio Sailing Association to try to use this system and as I only expect entries to be 20 to 30, it will be an ideal time to use it.

The Notice of race is now up on the QRYA site, but I have attached it so you can get the website links for the accommodation sites , plus I will be adding it to the DF95 Australian Owners Face book page, of which I am an administrator.

Please feel free to contact me for further information

Regards and good Sailing
