RS Aero New South Wales State Championships
Georges River SC, Botany Bay, Sydney, NSW, Australia,
14/15 Nov
 
Thanks to GRSC RS Aero fleet for this summary report;
 
The RS Aero NSW State Championships 2020 were held at Georges River Sailing Club over the weekend of 14/15th November for the first time on the beautiful waters of Botany Bay.

There were 19 entries consisting of sailors from Balmoral, Georges River, Royal Prince Alfred and Avalon Sailing Clubs, with one joining us all the way from Largs Bay in South Australia.

For many new sailors joining the fleet this was their first regatta in the RS Aero and we hope it was one to remember. To help keep those memories fresh, we were lucky enough to have Jon West Photography covering the event.

An excellent race officer set challenging but fun courses with the 6 scheduled races easily achieved over the weekend. The fleets had a great first day of racing with a light-medium 12-15 ESE breeze on the Saturday with plenty of fuel left in the tank for the following day. The breeze was much softer on Sunday, although the waves caused by the run out tide meant that a few competitors decided it would be a great day to have a swim.

Gary Ratcliffe from GRSC set the scene on the first day with a trio of first places in his RS Aero 7, with Mark Hooper, also from GRSC on top form in his RS Aero 9.

Overnight, as is the RS Aero way, Gary provided tips to the other sailors which made day two closer at the pointy end of the fleet. The first 5 places in the RS Aero 7 fleet were a fiercely competed affair with just one point separating third and fourth place. A general consistency in results was seen across all the fleets, with the feedback from the competitors saying they had a great time, with some excellent close racing.

Finally, a big thanks to the Race Officer, Andrew McLachlan, GRSC for hosting and to all the volunteers that made this event such a fun, memorable, and competitive regatta. 
 
Next up in New South Wales is the next leg of the NSW Travellers Series hosted by Balmoral SC in Sydney Harbour on Saturday 5th December.
