Ten Raters Battle it out in Twin Towns

TenRwideTT2020Saturday 25th July 2020 saw Twin Towns Radio Yacht Club host the Lake Kimberley Ten Rater Challenge and what an excellent day it was.

Commodore of TTRYC Richard Harradine and his team of volunteers did a great job in trying and varying weather conditions.

The winds were generally light , with many intermittent rain squalls, causing a soggy sailing area and some wet competitors and officials.

None the less the TTRYC, which only sails One Metre Yachts, did their best to make it a fun day for all.

The eleven competitors also did their bit to make it a good day with penalties promptly done and a great feeling ofcamaraderie and professionalism with their sailing.TenRWinnersTT2020

A splendid lunch was prepared for all present by Norma Harradine, Dianne Bone & Brian Bone.

Thanks to one and All.

With competitive sailing the final results were:- 

1st place 14 points  Andrew Holly (grey shirt)

2nd place 37 points Rex Scott (blue coat)

3rd place 50 points Trevor Fisher (green shirt)

A special Encouragement Award was presented to Fred Bestall.

Ross Capper also made a presentation to each of the volunteers  on the day and is on the left in the photo.

P.S. Hosting of an event for a class that is not sailed at that club is a truly impressive effort that should be applauded by the entire Radio Sailing community in Austalia. 

Well done Richard and members of Twin Towns Radio Yacht Club and Trevor Fisher for his efforts as National Class Coordintator in promoting the ten Raters.
