NSW State Championships 2010 & Legends Regatta

Saturday was a great day on the water for Day 1 of the NSW State Championship 2010 –  a fleet of 27, with 5 boats from VIC and 2 from SA, a variable day with some rain – a generally light day from 3 – 12 knots – 4 races in testing conditions.

Day 2 saw variable conditions  again, with breezes from around 5 -18 knots, a lot of rain and 4 close races! At times Jibs replaced Genoas and kite runs were close and top mark roundings busy.

Legends Regatta

After a wonderful Legends Dinner, very well hosted by Rob Mundle, where some lucky bidders got some great deals on new sails and a tiller, thanks to our fantastic sponsors, and many wonderful raffle prizes were won, we were faced with some breeze and even some blue skies on Monday!   

Race 1  – 21 starters, and after a general recall we saw some fairly consistent breezes and a fantastic victory by Victorian boat, Make My Jay, skippered by our Association President, Simon Grain – well done to him and his crew for winning the Andrew Short Memorial Trophy.

Race 2 started with 2 more general recalls as the Legends were keen to cross the line first, but a black flag on attempt 3 saw a more conservative start with the race led almost all the way by Neville Wittey on Sailpac, resulting in their crew taking out the Ian Bashford Memorial Trophy.

Many thanks to all those who travelled to Gosford this weekend making for a wonderfully competitive fleets, and to all the Legends who returned to the class for a fantastic day on the water!

  1. Great coverage of day one …pity two and three did not follow. I know you probaly busy but just a wee line would have done for all those left behind and who have been following the “j class” Sounds like a great event congrats Regards Norm

  2. Many thanks to Paula Terry and Arthur for piecing together a fabulous and fiercely competitve weekend of sailing. Congratulations to all the top knots! And did anyone notice the green machine kicking ass out there? Ron and the boys certainly whipped our butt! So it’s now one all in the Thomos cup and will be nothing less than war at the nationals for the decider!
