Another year, another Airlie Beach Race Week done and dusted. This year the famous tropical Queensland regatta also hosted the state titles for the northerners and the wind came out in spades to ensure all the crews worked as hard as they partied. 10 boats competed in the mostly warm tropical waters but several suffered damage over the regatta including one losing a rig but when the dust and the dusty heads had settled the winners were decided and this year the honours go to Graham Sherring with Retuned, with Andrew Wiklund’s Crank in second and Rees Howell’s Octopussy in third. See here for the full results.
- 1st – Graham Sherring – Retuned
- 2nd -Andrew Wiklund – Crank
- 3rd – Rees Howell – Octopussy
Congratulations to all skippers and crew.
Next up on the ASBA calendar will be the NSW state titles over at Gosford Sailing Club. NOR and entry available soon.
