Tough conditions at Lake Samsonvale

The Sth Queensland Marblehead Championships were held in very trying conditions at LSWA, we had a 50% casualty rate with 8 starters and only 4 for the last few races.

Congratulations to Greg Torpy on 19 points for 1st place, Doug Allen on 22 for 2nd place and Jason Nasmith on 50 for 3rd place. The wind increased as the day progressed to, I expect was approx. 25kts with heaver gust, all were reduced to C2 rigs, ( I’ll stand correct on the wind velocity ) and battled a reasonably sized wind wave to add to the challenge. 

The even was handled by all in a very friendly and sportsmanship manner without protests and we wish to thank all competitors, volunteers and Gary for being our PRO which made it a successful Regatta.
