Chillfest RESULTS

Postby Slow Hand on Tue Jun 30, 2009 8:34 pm

HI,
Here is a link to the Qld RQYS Chillfest results .... http://results.rqys.com.au/09-chillfest/series.htm ..... select Sabre to view.

Well done to John Campbell, 4 wins from 4 races - winning a bottle of red for his efforts.

We experienced a full range of winds over the two days - from very light to 23k. During the windy part of the last race John recorded a top speed of 12.01 knots, measured on the GPS Travel Recorder. Gary Horne and Sue Hextell were also wearing GPS devices, the analysis of the racing has been very interesting.

Special mention to Fran Eastgate sailing Bubbles, who kept her boat upright and sailing during the windy stuff. In Race 1 she led Gary astray on the course. I guess you could say 'never let a woman lead when its Strictly Ballroom'. Couldn't resist guys.

The Sabre sailors (John, Anne, Sue & Gary) were joined by Dave, Sandy and Rob for dinner on Saturday night at the RQYS Boardwalk Cafe - we enjoyed a meal and planned aspects of the coming season.

Thank you to Anne and ronwyn who helped make two Sabre class flags that the RQYS start boat used - another milestone for Qld Sabres.

If any southerners would like to sail in August, Lake Cootharaba have their 2009 Allboats Regatta on 22-23 August. Look out for a link on the forum shortly.
