Great photos, thanks Cheryl! It was a fun afternoon with a good sized fleet. I felt I sailed a lot better this week compared to the first day of the state titles

Awesome day of close racing in perfect conditions on the Swan. Big thanks and kudos to Denis, Snides and Mounts Bay Sailing Club for organising and running the event, results for the six races were emailed and hard copies delivered after the day's racing to all competitors before the first beer was poured. Fantastic photography skills from Cheryl, thanks a lot. Congratulations to Nick Poll on a well deserved win

Ok the weekend saw a teams race event at Mounts bay as noted above.
The windsurfers finished well back relative to moths,wasps and wind Foilers.
the course was long and difficult but had some fun reaching legs.
the bottom pic is my track for the day..peak speed of 15kn.
As you can see from the pics the start was an all in and very interesting!!

The wind Foilers did really well with a 2nd and a 4th across the line and second team overall.

Thanks Snides- and thanks for captaining this great team and thanks to all fellow participants. All of us did well, it was a great event, very exciting and an excellent challenging course. I think the LT sailors expended the most energy in getting around the marathon course. The windfoilers ringing of the bell was much appreciated thanks Daryl and well done on your teams great result. Great pizza provided by the club to satisfy the hunger built over the long course. MBSC is a truly great club and its people put on a magnificient event.

Another brilliant MBSC event, gruelling course in a solid sea breeze was a good test for the Wallys, all starters finished.

After race gourmet pizzas supplied by Larry @ Broadway Pizza and free beer compliments of Darryl's bell ring finished off a great day.

Well done Nick on your runaway win.

Stunning and impressive performances by the windfoilers in elite very company

Sunday Racing on again this week at MBSC 2pm start , Snides, looks like you will get your wish for long awaited light conditions

Congratulations to Snides, Denis and MBSC on a professionally run event.

Congratulations also to all the winners, it is very motivating to race against some of the best in the business

Special mention and thanks to Cheryl for her fantastic photography and promotions skills.

Great fun had by all, competitive and tight racing in a world class venue with excellent conditions.

Looking forward to racing in a bigger fleet next season. Thanks a lot!

Great photos and a great event. Sorry I could not make it to the Marathon.

A great bunch of sailors in what is really a world class fleet with well oiled and world class race organisation.

Thanks to all, including all participants, the MBSC, Snides and Denis for the resurgence of this great class in WA.
