Although it was extremely hot conditions at Lake Bonney for the annual “Queen Of The Lake” race suited the club’s wish to be able to conduct a long event.
Strong North Westerley winds enabled the buoy to be positioned at the Northern end of the lake for the Senior Race. A slightly shorter course was set for the Pacer fleet but conditions were equally challenging. Mosquito yachts with spinnakers appeared to fly around the buoys.
“6th Element” skippered by Peter Dunk with Kirsten Thomas as crew claimed the Senior title while “Mr Swag” with Josh Ridley and Lachlan Huser onboard won the Junior section.
The LBYC will not recommence sailing until Saturday 16th January when Championship Heat 4 will be held.
Meanwhile Mosquito Yachts from the club will contest the National Championships in Rye, Victoria.
On Saturday and Sunday 23rd and 24th January the club will host the State Paper Tiger Championships.
