Zhik Australia eSailing Challenge

NW Tas Zhik Australia eSailing Challenge

After two weeks of competition, and quite a few laughs we have some winners from our e-sailing experiment. They will now move onto the Tasmanian Championships to compete and if successful to the Australian champs. We wish them all the best in the upcoming challenge.

This weeks Racing report:

Congratulations to Jess Andrewartha and Anton Bezemer, Wynyard and Leven Yacht Club eSailing Champions respectively. Racing was tight both weeks with plenty of chatter as boats collided or discovered that room! was very much still alive in the game. As in real life mark rounding’s proved to make or break races today with the top and bottom mark on the first leg being the main area of contention.
New comers this week Nick Jones and Adrian Beswick showed real promise with Nick claiming race 1 after a magical port start that annihilated the fleet in one move taking the remainder of the race to even get close.
Race 2 was taken out by Adrian Beswick who managed to secure the win even though he had two small crew members sitting on him.
Anton Bezemer in Pupp clearly had a miss spent youth at the video arcade, demonstrated in race 3. Quietly he went about making the most of every shift and avoiding collision to come home in 1st place. Hot on his heels and never far of the pace throughout was Jess Andrewartha in and Nick Jones.
As in any real race there were battles within battles going on around the course with Warwick Papworth, Patrick Reilly, Teresa Badrock and Ela Klinger regularly coming to blows… often literally. Thankfully no one has to get the fiberglass or first aid kits out for esailing however the odd heart tablet may be recommended!
A Big thanks to Zhik and Australian Sailing for taking the initiative and for members across the coast for their participation.

Hansa 303 State Titles

Hansa 303 Racing

The Tasmanian Hansa Championships concluded at the Wynyard Yacht Club on Sunday with all six scheduled races completed.
Challenging 25 knot winds on Saturday saw the race officer Chris Thomas and his team bring the fleet of 11 yachts back into the Inglis River after one race in Bass Strait.
Sundays three races were held offshore in ideal conditions with 5 to 15 knot winds and small waves allowing for close racing.
Winners in the singles division was Hobart sailors Rod Viney from Bert Somssich second with Castra skipper Ian Dickenson third.
In the hotly contested two up division Wynyard young sailors Ethan Price fresh from the National and World 420 championships in Fremantle over Christmas with Nick Jones as crew were winners from Chris Symonds and Edward Cartwright taking second place after a countback from Mike Darby and Ela Klinger who finished in third place.
Interstate competitors who normally sail on Perth’s Swan River and Ballarat’s lake Wendouree were challenged by our Bass Strait conditions but thoroughly enjoyed the regatta.
The Hansa 303’s have recently being selected as the next Para Olympic class are such an inclusive boat with the championship competitor ages ranging from Hobarts 94 year old Ted Moule to 11 year old Nick Jones. The 303 allows for those with disabilities to complete equally with abled boded persons.
The Wynyard Yacht Club based championships would not have being so successful without the large volunteer support crew both on land and water to ensure safety of the fleet in sometimes challenging conditions.
The regatta proved good training for local Para sailor Chris Symonds and Perth’s Genevieve Wickam as they prepare for the Para World sailing championships in the US in September.Link to event photos can be found here.https://sailabilitytas.org/
