Coasts South Lakes Results and Photos
The Coasts at South Lakes were blown out on the Sunday with the series being scored on the three races sailed on on Saturday 12th October with no drop.
Safe competitive racing was not possible on Sunday due to over 25 knot NW winds combined with very large and potentially boat breaking waves on the course.
Saturday on the other hand was picture perfect with a 15 knot ENE breeze for the three heats. There were 47 entries for the series. The on water SLMASC team and our PRO Col Chidgey set a very nice course which stayed the same for the three races.
The 4.7 series had six boats and was won by South Lakes local Scott Singleton-Turner with two bullets and a second to edge out fast improving Gosford sailor Jordan Makin (3,1,3) with Peter Charlton also from South Lakes third.
The Radials had 24 competitors and were headed by Shane Conoly from Middle Harbour Amateur Sailing Club. Shane finished with two bullets and a second. Second was Nick Connor from RPAYC (5,1,2) and third Stuart Penderleith also MHASC (2,3,6).
The Standards were won convincingly by Sean Atherton from MHASC with three straight heat wins. Chris Dawson from RPAYC was second (3,2,2) and Richard Howard from Belmont 16′s third (2,3,5).
Thanks go to the great team at South Lakes for their organisation both on and off the water. It is a great dingy sailing club in a fabulous location.
