Inaugural RC Laser South Australia State Titles
It has taken us a while, but finally we are holding our first RC Laser South Australia State Titles on Saturday 19th August. Importantly, we are commencing this event in the year of the Championship of Nations (CON), to give the opportunity to those sailors who are keen enough to travel interstate to gain extra experience in this important year.
The RC Laser South Australia State Titles will be held at the Adelaide Radio Control Yacht Club at the Patawalonga Lake, Glenelg North. This is the location where the RC Laser National titles were held in 2013, and is a great sailing location with reliable breezes. South Australia has a small but competitive RC Laser fleet, with five boats attending the CON this year.
The Notice of Race and entry forms for this event are now available on the Australian Radio Yachting Assoc. (ARYA) website (www.radiosailing.org.au). The entry fee is $30 and the closing date for entries is Friday 11th August.
Adelaide Radio Control Yacht Club is near Adelaide Airport and can be reached by turning right off Anzac Highway onto Adelphi Terrace and then left onto Anderson Avenue.
The timetable for the event will be as follows –
10am Sailing commences
Lunch – the lunch period will be determined by the PRO and may depend on wind conditions.
4pm Last race will not commence beyond this time.
Lunch will be provided on the day. There will also be a dinner (not included in registration fee) at The Plank restaurant on Adelphi Terrace for those wishing to have an informal evening meal near the venue.
RC Laser South Australia Series
The day following the RC Laser South Australia State Titles we will have Round 6 of our South Australia RC Laser Series at Mawson Lakes Model Yacht Club. The briefing will be at 1.30pm and sailing will commence at 2pm. This will be a more low key event, but will give entrants the opportunity to sail at another South Australian venue.
Mawson Lakes Model Yacht Club can be reached by turning left off Main North Road onto Mawson Lakes Boulevard, then left on to Park Way and then immediately right onto First Avenue.
