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/
