The 2005 State championship was ably hosted by Mt Martha YC over the Labour Day long weekend and was basically a light weather series. No racing was possible on the Saturday and we were fortunate to get in 3 short races on Sun and only 1 on Mon. Unlike in previous years, a drop was allowed with 4 races which with the variable weather, was needed by most competitors.

National Champion Alan Riley sailing 1564, "The Sea Drift Social Club" (where do these names come from) won his first State title to cap off what Alan descibed as his best sailing season ever.

Alan was tied with Barry Eastgate 1611 "Big Day Out" after 2 races with a win and third each, but Alan showed his class by going on to a 2nd and first in the remaining heats while Barry could only manage two fifths.

Perennial Veteran David Wood 1677 "First & Last" was third in his new Johnson boat 2 points behind Barry.

Fourth and Fifth places were decided on a count back with first season star, Andy McIntyre 1670 "Rocket Science" from BRYC placing 4th by virtue of a best placing of 2nd from Fiona McCulloch 1596 "Sealed Section" whose best place was a 3rd in the last race.

A count back also decided 6th and 7th with Phillip Johnson "Shearwater" getting the nod from Andrew Graham "Southern Aurora". Phil won heat 3 and led for part heat 1 until a couple of gremlins set in.

Congratulations to Andrew on what has been his best year since returning to sailing and Sabres...perhaps he starting to listen to Wayne's advice.

Racing was extremely close and until Andrew Little surrendered the lead which he had for most of the last race, there would been different winners for each heat.t to experience the joys of Sabre sailing.
