Sail Sandy - Sandringham YC, Melbourne, Australia
15/10/2016 - 16/10/2016


RS Classes at Sail Sandy
Sandringham YC, Melbourne, 15-16th October 2016

by RS Classes Australian Class Association

With Saturday's 25+ knots of wind causing sailing to be cancelled, the Sail Sandy regatta in Australia was squeezed into the Sunday. Numbers were down as the forecast had put many sailors off entering.

The RS Aeros, RS200s and RS 100s sailed together, which provided some close mixed handicap racing, with Alister Danks in an RS Aero 7 narrowly beating Pete Milne and Lara Blasse in their RS200. A notable 3rd equal were Phillipa Danks and Jackie Lokum (both under 16) in their RS Aero 5's.

The family aspect of RS sailing was again demonstrated, the father and daughter Danks team in RS Aero's, plus Lara's daughter sailing in the 420 fleet whilst Gary Lokum was mixing it with the Finns.

The next major Australian RS events will be Go for Gold at Black Rock YC on 26/27th November, and the RS Victorian State Championships to be held during the George Mac Regatta at Royal Brighton Yacht Club on 3/4th December. An Aero coaching clinic is being arranged, potentially at Blairgowrie YS later in the year.
