Loch Sport BC - 12/13/14 March 2016

Mk1/Mk2

Despite the strange weather we sailed the whole 7 races as scheduled. The wind was light (insubstantial) for the first 5 races and filled in nicely for the last two on Monday. The whole weekend was strangely overcast and warm (quite gloomy) with a little bit of drizzle to fog up our glasses on Sunday morning.

In the Mk1 fleet Shannon Wilson dominated the light stuff and hung on well enough when the  breeze blew. Behind him Peter Nikitin, Stewart Ridge and Gary Maskiell were all in contention with Gary coming good on the last day to steal 2nd place from Peter.

In the Mk2 fleet, Robert and Alex Lott came to the fore and made Neil Joiner & Ben Bockman work hard to win the title. Matt Stone & Natasha Van Rennes along with Gordon Hyde & Eliza Kimlin were never far away but in the end were left to fight it out for 3rd and 4th.

Spinnaker

The Victorian Spinnaker State Titles have been run and won. Congratulations to Matt Stone, who defended his title against tough challenges from Robbie Lovig and his brother Daniel (who was leading after the first day's racing). Matt finished only a point ahead of Robbie. This report gleaned from posts by Gary and Matt.

Day 1

Gary - "Waves were not big today, but seastate was described as a washing machine, very confused. Robbie's worst place was when the tiller extension Matt loaned him broke. Typical of Matt, sabotaging boats that he knows are faster. Only boats that didn't have a swim were Daniel & Robbie, well done. Pete got 3rd in the last race with out using the kite, thanks to a swim by Neil and Matt Sabotaging Robbie.

Sounds like a big night tonight at the club, with more Mossie sailors arriving and in the morning, forecast is for lighter winds and I think apart from Daniel they are all looking forward to an easier day tomorrow.

Day 2

Ended up with 8 Mossies as Phillip WS, Trevor & Eliza and Mitch Meade (on boat borrowed from local, Jeremy) joined in today. The wind varied from light 5-8 knots, to fresh gusting to 17 knots."

Matt - "Started off in 3 to 5 knots, pin end biased startline with the tide running out making it hard as it was pushing us over the line. I won the first race of the day with dolphins swimming and jumping out just in front of the bows and under boat, great sight to see.

Wind was about 10 knots in the next 2 races. Robbie found the fine line of the very complicated Maskeil boat! Came down to the last mark on the downwind port stb rule ( called stb on me so I gybed and he gybed, grr made me angry). Well done Robbie Lovig, I will get you next time.

Wind picked up to about 13 knots, and most boats had been over laying the mark as they forgot the tide - home knowledge and sailing angles were an advantage. Robbie, Daniel and I reached the gate together with pressure on Daniel getting down kite - tangles in ropes caused a swim which made him slip back a few places.

One race people forgot how to count laps as I finished race in 1st and people were doing another lap. I had doubts, but nope I was right.

Really good racing and thanks to Somers YC for putting on the regatta for us. We did have 10 races planned but time ran out and 8 races were run. Thanks to all the rescue crew, race officer and the club providing the dinner, it was a successful weekend."
