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.

 

Rosco Bennett took off right from the start of the day, streaking off to a decent lead by lunch, with Jeff Green and Roger Paul chasing. After lunch, the wind picked up a bit, and the Ten Rater greyhounds were flying around the lake. Glenn Dawson got his Blade up and running much better in the wind, and started the long chase.

By the end of the day, the rain finally let up, and we started to dry out as the regatta wound up. Rob managed to get in 16 quite long races, giving us 3 drops. In the end, Glenn tried in vain to catch Rosco, who took out his first Ten Rater State championship. Jeff Green finished on the podium, just ahead of Roger Paul.

Rob Murdoch launched his Blade, and was going very fast at times. John Goor sailed very well with his Aero 3, always pushing the leaders. Unfortunately, John had technical difficulties towards the end of the day, and missed a few races. Denton battled hard all day, and certainly will be better for the outing. Unfortunately, Ian Sherriff and Len had difficulties with their boats, forcing an early exit.

Skippers sailed the regatta in terrific spirit despite the weather conditions. We all would like to thank Rob Mews, Lloyd Coles, Andree Bennett, Fred Webber and Justin McAullay for volunteering to officiate for the day.
