SAILING REPORT - Sunday 6 October

An easterly breeze with a strongly running incoming tide tested sailors in the Short Course Series racing on Sunday afternoon.

In Division 1, young sailor Riley House with his Laser 4.7 rig joined the Radials and had a good afternoon, taking out one race, and pushing Craig Stanger in a couple of others. A good racing fleet with 7 Lasers on the water.

In Division 2, the Sabres were joined by former member and now Brisbane-based John Campbell who took out all races. Good to see James Grieve back on the water in his Sabre, while Sean Tisdale in showing good consistency sailing his Sabre.

Two competitors in Division 3, with Cody Markey in his Optimist leading Declan Waller (Sabot) around the course in all races.

Riley and Cody have just returned from Queensland Youth Week at Yeppoon, and obviously improved their racing through the training and competition.

Thanks to Race Officers, David Krempin and Bruce Markey, and to Stuart House in the Race Support RIB.
