98 Lasers competed in the NB Sailsports NSW & ACT State Championships at Georges River Sailing Club over the weekend of 9-10 November.
The six scheduled races were completed in nice SE breezes ranging between 8 and 14 knots.
The small but competitive fleet of 4.7′s had some great racing with the ultimate winner Ethan Lozevski from Woollahra SC and Dobroyd AC. Second was Xavier McLachlan from RSYS and Double Bay SC and third a visitor from Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron Hamish Cowell. First female was fourth placed Olivia Williams from RPAYC.
The Radial fleet of 52 saw some very tight racing and lots of black flag starts. The winner by just two points was Jack Littlechild from RSYS, DBSC and RANSA. Second was Daniel Costandi RSYS, DBSC and GRSC and third was Sofiane Karim a visitor from Société des Régates d’Antibes - Côte d’Azur France. First female was fifth place Marlena Berzins from RSYS and DBSC.
The convincing winner in the Standards was Campbell Patton from DBSC. Campbell won five of the six races and dropped his worst place 2nd. Second was Gavin Blake also from DBSC followed by a strong supporter of our events Victorian Steve Gunther from Port Melbourne YC. Behind Campbell there was very close racing with just six points between 2nd and 6th place.
