Up at beautiful Port Stephens the Australian Laser Masters have seen just under 190 boats for their first ever Nationals away from the Open fleet. It is a fantastic turn out with sailors in full , Radial and 4.7 rigs. The standard of racing is high with no one along for the ride. Plenty of new boats, new sails and new gear. Great support being provided by PSA and NB Laser. We have a good showing from Victoria with many sailing friends notably Owen McMahon, Mark Tonner-Joyce, James Mitchell and John Jagger all having great races. After two days of breeze looked like a couple of light air days to follow. However it continued to blow and rain. However the racing was great fun. Congratulations to Owen McMahon for winning his Radial division and top five results overall from Mark Tonner-Joyce and John Jagger.
