South Queensland RC Laser Championships
The South Queensland RC Laser Championships was held between 29 – 30 July 2017 at Lakeside Park Dakabin, North of Brisbane. 21 entrants particpated in the event from the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, and NSW.
The event consisted of a two day regatta and was made up of two RC laser fleets, A & B – the faster yachts being assigned to fleet A.
Saturday started with very light and varying winds causing a certain amount of frustration for some of the entrants. Sunday’s weather did not fare much better, and after a late start the wind remained just as light in the afternoon as it had the day before.
Nevertheless, with conditions being what they were, everyone enjoyed the warm and sunny conditions served up by sunny Queensland.
A shout out goes to Pine River Radio Yacht Club, the hosts of the South Queensland RC Laser Championships, as well as to the volunteers who helped out on the day.
A special mention also goes to the Officer of the Day, Ian Ashe, and scorer, David Black.
The successful place getters of the South Queensland RC Laser Championships were:
1st – Malcolm Kampe Qld
2nd – Jason Rootes NSW
3rd – Daniel Bergan NSW
Best and Fairest – Linton Ward
