2021 QLD State A Class Championships 27th November

2021 QLD State A Class Championships heScreenshot 2021 11 28 132235ld at Lake Samsonvale Water Sports Association.

 Well, contrary to the weather forecast, we had a rain free day at Lake Samsonvale with a reasonably consistent breeze of 5-10knots from the south east for most of the day. We had an excellent turn up with 10 skippers registering for the event, with 9 attending and competing.

There was a typical weed problem with fresh water, as such we managed 12 races, 9 boats sailing except for the last 3 races where 7 boats sailed and I think there were only 2 boat rescues for the day.

The RC Yacht sport should be very proud of the manner in which all competitors conducted themselves on the day, there were very few penalties called, considering 12 races, all penalties were carried out on request or without request in most instances, the tone of the day was nothing but exemplary for all.

Congratulations go to, Frank Russel from Sunshine Coast RSC who took out the day, 1st place, Frank showed a clean set of heals for most of the day with 9 firsts, an impeccable days sailing by Frank.

Congratulations to Les Flood of LSWSA for 2nd place, an excellent, consistent days sailing, only 4 races where he was not on the podium.

Congratulations to Jason Nasmith of LSWSA for 3rd Place, likewise an excellent, consistent days sailing by Jason, only 4 races where he was not on the podium and only 2 points separated 2nd & 3rd places.

Almost all skippers had a place on the podium on the day, unfortunately Ian Kirley had a gooseneck fail at race 8 and had to withdraw.

A big thank you to Nick Linsdley from the Moreton club for acting as both OOD and Scorer for the day, this allowed ALL A Class skippers to sail, thank you Nick and all the other volunteers who made the day a successful one, the A Class is well and truly alive and kicking in QLD.

Thanks and Regards
