120 Boat Start line for Tasar Worlds in Busselton

(with 6 weeks remaining to enter)

With 6 weeks remaining until the first race is run, 120 boats have entered the Geographe Bay Tasar World Championship to be held in January 2015. There are entries from Australia, Japan, U.S.A., Great Britain and Ireland.

 Current World Champions Anthony Boscolo and Haley Lane from Seattle, Washington State are travelling to Busselton to defend their title with their 35 year old boat USA 505. “120+ boats will certainly be an experience, I thought 60 boats was a lot last year, I can’t even picture that many Tasars in one place” says Haley of the upcoming worlds.

 Four of the top six placed boats at the Cascade Locks Worlds in 2013 will be competing in this event.

 Haley says “Last year we met the friendliest bunch of competition (Aussie Tasar Sailors) we have ever sailed against. We are really very excited to be seeing everyone again, and meet (a whole bunch) more of you, and do a little sailing too! We hope our boat survives the trip!  We’re looking forward to exploring the Busselton and Margaret River regions, we’ve heard about the natural beauty of the area as well as the world class food and wine on offer.””

 Five previous World Champions are also competing in the event including Lisa and Jay Renehan (U.S.A), Rob and Nicole Douglass (AUS) and Bronwyn Ridgway (AUS).

 The Australian National Championship will be held in conjunction with the World Championship and there are nine past Australian Champions competing, including Rob and Nicole Douglass, Shane Guanaria, Craig McPhee, Gill Berry, Bronwyn Ridgway (Current AUS Champion), Alistair Murray and Michael Paynter.

 Racing in Geographe Bay in such a large fleet promises to be memorable, and the organizing committee is working hard to ensure that the off water events will provide the perfect complement to the competitive racing – giving competitors a great opportunity to unwind and socialize.  If you’re interested it’s not too late to buy a boat and get into one of the biggest sailing events in WA waters this year!

Potential sponsors are encouraged to contact the organizing committee, as sponsorship opportunities are still available.

And is that Rails waving?

The 2015 Laser Open Nationals in Perth Western Australia

THE NATIONALS ARE HOTTING UP!

 Less than two months out and already there is firm interest in the Laser Nationals to be sailed at the Mandurah Offshore Fishing and Sailing Club in sunny Perth. With easy access to some of the best sailing waters in WA, the MOFSC also has one of the finest club facilities on the west coast. The sea breeze promises great action every afternoon with two races on the Indian ocean scheduled each day, just ten minutes from the club on Comet Bay. Close to two hundred sailors are expected on the water with a large number of volunteers that will keep them sailing. 

 Some of Perth's best sailors have already signed up with Radial world champion Tristan Brown staking his claim on the national title. Facing him are Conor Nicholas and Richard Maher with no doubt the addition of Alastair Young, James Stewart  and others of the same ilk. New Zealander Alastair Gifford has made his bid and it's pleasing to see that Queensland's Ashley Stoddart and Darwin's Hamish Wiltshire have booked in already, with more to come from the East coast over the next few weeks.

In the Standard rigs, the Masters are already showing their hands and I'm sure that there will be many more with such scintillating conditions on offer. But the truth will arrive in the Open section with all of WA's big four putting their hats in the ring; Matthew Wearn, Luke Elliott, Ben Walkemeyer and Mark Spearman. It would be expected that several more premium WA sailors will come on board as well and we can look forward to see who will join them from interstate.

Most pleasing is the strength that is building in the 4.7's underneath the Radial and Standard rigs with a great representation from other states already booking in. With both Caeilin Winchcombe and Zoe Thomson expected to book in and Jonathon Pang already booked, they have the threat of former national O'pen Bic sailor and now 4.7 whizz kid Zac Littlewood joining in and he will put the older sailors on their mettle as the days progress.

Mandurah Offshore Fishing and Sailing Club event director Mikael Lundh has been working hard to get this event underway and he has been ably supported by both the West Australian Laser Association and the club in getting the event under way.

I'm looking forward to the 2015 Laser Open Nationals at Mandurah from the 27th of December. I hope you'll be there too.

The Flag Officers of Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club are saddened to learn of the passing of Tony Mitchell this morning. Our condolences go to his family.  May he rest in peace.

Tony had been battling cancer for several years, however this didn't diminish his passion for offshore racing.  He represented the Club in his yacht Sled for several years before chartering the super-maxi Nicorette, renaming her Super Sled, and taking the course record for the Fremantle-Bali race.  Most recently, Tony had been campaigning a TP52 which he kept in Fremantle
