Last weekend the titles were held at Mornington Yacht Club, 10 Contenders fought it out in light winds under clear skys. Jono was the clear winner with 4 bullets followed by Dan Kohlman in 2nd and David Leask (NSW) took 3rd place while Jon Newman took out 4th place.
Special thanks to Wichard who donated Wichard Multitools for trophies and Mornington YC who were able to fit us in at late notice. The race officer did a fantastic job of running the event, and managed to hold 4 races, 1 on Saturday and 3 on the Sunday morning.
Matt Kee rocked up with Hosie's old boat. Andrew Butler came over from Geelong sailing Dubbo's old boat and Pat Moore a young fella from Somers SC attended his first states in Chris Chambers old boat. The NSW guys, Brett, David and Peter Murphy made the trip down from NSW although on the water Brett and David were rarely separated by more than a boat length, makes you wonder why they travelled a thousand km to sail against one another?
The 2012 Nationals will be held in Victoria, at this stage Mc Crae Yacht Club, Somers Yacht Club and Geelong have been put forward as a possible venues.
