The 2016 RC Laser National Championships Is Almost Here

Over a year in planning, finally the 2016 RC Laser National Championships is upon us!

To be held at Yarrawonga Yacht Club, Victoria over this coming weekend with a record number of competitors (43) and many first time RC Laser sailors, it’s a great start to what will certainly prove to be an exciting weekend.

Due to the large number of entrants, fleets will be split into A, B & C fleets, allowing sailors of similar skill sets to compete against each other after the first couple of races.

A new addition to the RC Laser event will be the breakdown of awards into four age groups. These include:

  • Mariner up to 55
  • Captain 55-61
  • Master 62-65
  • Sea Master 66+

2016 RC Laser National Championships – Schedule

The weekend will certainly prove to be a busy one with the event organisers and member hosts of the Patterson Lakes Radio Model Yacht Club going all out to ensure a successful weekend of events.

This includes:

  • Friday 16th September – Social practice sailing 11h00hrs – 1600hrs
  • Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th – RC Laser race event
  • Saturday night – Buffet Style Dinner at the Yacht Club
  • Sunday 18th September – Awards presentation

The historic town of Yarrawonga

For those not competing and wanting to explore, Yarrawonga town is certainly one not to be missed. Boasting great restaurants and plenty to see and do within a great country feel, you will be spoilt for choice.

Good luck to all our RC Laser sailors competing in this year’s 2016 RC Laser National Championships.

This will be a great lead up to the 2017 RC Laser Championship of Nations next November in the Gold Coast.
