Queensland state titles. Great event.

beach-tvilleIMG_4802-(Small)presentation-tvlleA fleet of 29 Nacra’s attended the Queensland Nacra titles in Townsville-North Queensland.

Perfect weather and good breezes made for the perfect event over Easter.

A fleet of 29 Nacra’s attended the regatta, with the fleet still growing in North Queensland.

Sailing was held over 3 days and 12 races were managed to be raced, with best 11 counted.

Conditions were generally 10-15knots with good waves and nearly sunny weather most of the time.

Social events were held on Friday night at Jamico Joe’s which overlooks the water.

Plus a presentation on the lawn on Sunday over looking Magnetic island.

It was great to see all competitors on the 4.5 sailing 2 up with children.

Well done to Lucus for finishing 3rd, who sailed 2 up both being only 15years old.

The biggest winner of the event was Luke McMullen finally after 20 plus years managing to claim his first F-18 title.

The next event in North Queensland is on the May day long weekend at Lake Tinaroo.
