2019 O'pen Bic Worlds Report Below are a few images from the Worlds. At time of posting, we are halfway through the regatta. The wind has been light 4-11 knots and very shifty. Very easy to have bad races. All of the Mounts Bay sailors are performing well and keep improving. Information on the regatta can be found here: https://worlds2019.openbicclass.org/
A great day at Mounts Bay was opened by new Patron Julie Bishop and the sailors headed out in a light 5-10kn South Wester. Good to see the newly updated Windsurfer LT's at the club plus the foiling Windsurfers mixing it up with the Foiling Moths. Also a great fleet of Sharpies and good to see our friends from Perth Dinghy and Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht in the 14's, Javelins. Sabre and Open Bics. Here's a few images from day.
Mounts Bay sailors attended the Annual West Sail 4 day camp and then competed in the WA Youth Championships over the last week. It was a fairly intense few days, with physical training from WAIS coaches at 8:00am and lectures and class training throughout the day, with a fun dinner and other guest speakers at night. Below are a few photos of our Bic sailors at the Youths: Annabelle, Josh, Sam, Ben, and Kaison. The focus now moves to get ready for the season opener on the 6th and then the NZ Worlds in January. Well done to all of to sailors [...]
Congratulations to Mounts Bay sailors Ash Gabrielson and Mark Lewis, together with Peter Ivanac for bringing the Sharpie National title home to WA and to Mounts Bay. The boys won the nationals just finished in Yeppoon in Queensland, by a comfortable margin in the end, sewing it up with a race to spare. Ash will be ringing the bell here at the club just as soon as he finishes the monster drive back, in a week or so! Mounts Bay is hosting the Sharpie Nationals in 2 years time.
