Burford takes Queensland RC Laser Championship for 2020

RCLaser2020BoatsChampionship on the line at the Gold Coast20 July 2020

Another spectacular warm Gold Coast day with clear blue skies greeted the 14 competitors that represented a total of four Queensland Yacht Clubs. However the 10.00 am race start was delayed due to the lack of wind, soon a very light 2 to 3 knot north easterly breeze rippled the glassy lake surface sufficient for Race Officer Bill Clancy to call for “Boats on the water Please‘’.

As the day progressed the shifting breeze filled in from east south east and rose to 5 to 8 knots, giving the sailors some challenging sailing conditions so a total of 15 races were able to be completed. RCLaser2020WinnersLeft to right: Daniel Bergan 3rd, Perter Burford 1st and Alan Walker 2nd.

Members of the host club dominated the first overall 9 places, with Peter Burford taking first place on 33 points, with ex PRYC commodore Alan Walker finishing second on 37 points and Daniel Bergan third with 39 points , which highlights how close the days racing was, congratulations well done guys.

PRYC wish to thank all of the competitors for making the day a great success , plus a special thank you to David Black (SLMM) for scoring, Laurie Hinchcliff (Sailing Secretary, the event organizer) and the experienced Race officer Bill Clancy for running and managing the days event with his team of club volunteers.
