What a fantastic days sailing we had for the 3rd and final round of the state slalom series.

Located in the third and furthest channel at East inlet, the flat water and 18 knots of wind created an ideal setting for some serious sailing.
The one drawback we had was the current ripping out with the tide. This caused the buoys to have to be relocated several times to keep the course at an appropriated length.

About a dozen sailors battled it out at each start to try and get the edge and place themselves in that prestigious pole position coming into the first turn. Time after time James Brient showed blistering acceleration to streak ahead of the pack.

All up 6 races were held with plenty of time left for freesailing on the low tide.

A relaxed Barbeque in the evening topped of an awesome day. Perks even found time to celebrate his 2012 dominance of the GPSTC by ripping up the dance floor trophy in hand!

Results-top 9
1-James Brient TheZU Starboard/Severne C3
2-Dave Morehead Starboard/Severne C3
3-Kaleb Smith Starboard/Severne
4-Izaak Perkins JP/Neil Pryde C3
5-Paul Tenteye Starboard
6-Karen Robertson Starboard/Severne
7-Anthony Perkins JP/Neill Pryde C3
8-Jordan Murray Starboard/Severne
9-Anthony Houston Fanatic/Naish

Sorry I missed meeting & presentation, wasn't sure where it was held. Can you put up the overall results for the year too.
Another great sail this morning at Stanley, bit windier than saturday.

Great night Saturday night, just a shame I broke the harness line as soon as I got into the channel.

Anthony, do have the shot of the soldier crabs scuttling back across the sand?

Yeah good to see 'other' brands out there, old and new.
Its not just a Severne state after all. Mind you i think the roadhouse at Cambell town is sponsered by Severne,

Fantastic day, I'm hooked on the racing, a bit of an adrenaline buzz with 17 sailors hitting the top mark pretty much on top of each other.

The BBQ was a bit of a hoot with Perks and the Pink Lady setting the scene on the dance floor..........I discovered Fitz could really strutt his stuff on the floor and left the Pink Lady for dead but he did insist on me being the girl and dance kak handed........not a problem I quite liked it.

Headed off to bed around midnight only to be abducted and hustled into the drag queens (Fitz and Strewy) caravan. Think we cramped their style as they kicked us out at 1pm..........they had big plans for the rest of the night.


Oh and guess who hogged the trophies

It's pretty amazing how we could sail across the sand and the water...the new 2013 hovercrafts

Hey Tom!
Yeah, you'd be loving it. Quite a few smooth easterlies at Stanley.
Have you been getting in the water? Where have you been sailing?

Tom where do you live and sail? We had an Irish couple down here last year they got hooked sailing after borrowing the learner boards they went back to Ireland and have been sailing ever since

Thanks Barry I enjoyed Johnny's race photos too as I was on the other side of the inlet when the races happened. It would have been great to watch all those board racing towards the marks up close.

I took your avatar photo while standing waist deep in the middle of the first channel with a non-waterproof SLR. As I waded out to the middle of the channel I was expecting to suddenly disappear over my head in one of the holes, I held the camera over my head in the hope that it would stay dry if the worst happened. Here is an extra photo that also worked OK

Absolutely. We had a great wind direction getting all the way up and 98% of the way back without stopping. Stupid how quick you "could" go on them things.

Would be great to do it with a heap of people next year
