State Titles report and results.

The first weekend of the states has been completed with three races being decided on Saturday. These races were conducted back-to-back in 5-15 knots with the occasional bullet near 20kts. With the timing of the event being very early in the season, many competitors (and their boats) were not fully prepared and ready for a full afternoon of competitive sailing. Several incidents occurred ranging from gear failure to collisions and boat damage. One boat damaged a bow but completed all three races, gradually slowing as the water intake increased.

As usual the Pt. Vincent SC conducted a successful weekend on and off the water and the SA fleet again appreciated the club and its volunteers' time and effort during the weekend. It must be noted and special thanks given to Peter Briton-Jones of Goolwa for filling the role of Race Officer for the weekend. Peter and the PVSC race committee planned the afternoon's racing and put in place the procedures to be used during the forthcoming Nationals.

With the predicted forecast being correct and winds in excess of 32knots flowing across the bay, the Sunday racing was cancelled.

The results can be found here.

The remaining five races for the series will be conducted at Somerton YC.
