2016 IOM State Championship
2016 Western Australian State Championships – Austin Lakes
The weekend of December 3 and 4 was the Western Australian IOM State Championship regatta at Austin Lakes in South Yunderup. Many of the competitors arrived at the lake on Friday afternoon for a bit of practice. We set up the course and immediately, the racing got going.
Friday’s practice was a fun series of short races giving everyone a chance for a few of the locals to reacquaint themselves with the lake and our visitors to get used to the seabreeze. This year we were really pleased to welcome three competitors from interstate and across the ditch. Steve Champion joined us from New Zealand, Norm Wallis came across from Adelaide and Lindsay and Anne Walker flew in from NSW.Read more: 2016 IOM State Championship
2016 WA Ten Rater State Championships
On Sunday October 16 at Champion Lakes, the Ten Rater fleet gathered to establish the 2016 Western Australian State Champion. The forecast was for mid range winds gradually dropping towards the latter part of the afternoon.
Thirteen skippers fronted for the day. Race officer Hub Bell and his able assistant Rod Moss had us all organized and on the water at the advertised starting time of 10.30am. There were a number of shifts early in the regatta which made setting the course a tricky task. Hub kept on top of the windshifts and made sure the courses were fair. There was only one abandoned race in which the fleet sailed to the first mark on a reach.Read more: 2016 WA Ten Rater State Championships
