Spring visited for the 2017 RC Laser Victorian States bringing with it fine weather, wind coming from every direction and even weed! The event was held at the National Water Sports Centre on the Patterson River and hosted by the Patterson Lakes Radio Model Yacht Club (PLRMYC). Interstate competitors included Adrian Heard from SA and Daniel Burgen from NSW, both keen to get in some championship practice prior to the RC Laser Championship of Nations.
A big thankyou to David Thomas from the VRYA for taking on the PRO job yet again, along with Mike Pender and Tony Smith helping out and doing a fantastic job to make the day flow smoothly.
Sailing was in light A rig conditions for most of the day and all competitors sailed with excellent sportsmanship, which we’ve come to expect within the RC Laser group. The only lady skipper was deprived of a race win, by her husband who stole the race in the last meter to the finish line!
