Laser Nationals 2011 Underway

Sophie Chesterman & Dylan Gore from Tasmania Laser 4.7's

The Georges River 16 foot Sailing Club is the venue for the 2010-2011 Australian Laser Championships and racing got underway for all three classes today. The 4.7 fleet is around 40 plus which is excellent, a strong Radial fleet of 100 plus and a full rig fleet of 40 plus looked a site out on the bay in 17-19 knots of breeze with a short chop. All fleets got in two races with the full rigs taking the use of the black flag to get them underway. Nationals are always are a great time for meeting up with old competitors and sailing buddies. No more so than this year as I have caught up with some old friends in Mark Bethwaite, Mark Kennedy and John Middleton and Vanessa Dudley so far and looking forward to seeing some more old friends during the regatta. Full results will be posted at http://www.laser.asn.au/1011nats/opennats.html
