2014 10R State Championships
On Sunday, we drove down to Austin Lakes for the State Champs. The morning winds were from the south-east, making for a great long course. PRO Rob Mews got us away at 10.30am in a light breeze. We did manage to get 6 races in prior to a lunch break. Unfortunately, the left over rain from the day before kept on falling and we had to manage the second drenching in two days.

2014 IOM State Championship
Over the weekend of the IOM States, the weather gave us four seasons in two days. Saturday morning started out with the lake looking like a mirror. There was nothing there to push the boats along. Gradually a breeze wafted in, but it took most of the morning to decide which direction it would blow from. The sun was shining, and it really was a lovely day.
The regatta commenced with 18 of the 22 skippers showing up. Unfortunately Sean and Matt were unable to attend from interstate, but we were very pleased to welcome Andy Reid, who made the trip from Melbourne. A couple of the locals were also unable to attend, with work and health issues.

IOM Class Rule Interpretation
To: All WA clubs
The following ruling has come from IOM ICA regarding headsail topping lift restraining lines. It will affect some boats in WA, and Australia, including my IOM.
Basically, there is only one restraining line allowed (singular). Those of us who use more than one restraining line will have to change our rigging before competing in any IOM ICA, ARYA or RSAWA sanctioned event.
The ruling comes into effect immediately.
