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.
- 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
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.
