MBSC Winter


A great turn out of 7 Sabres competed in the second MBSC winter series heat on Sunday.

With perfect winter weather and a light to moderate South Easterly the Sabres competed on the water space planned to be used for the 2017/18 Nationals. A combined start with the Tasar's, GP14's and Ants made the start line busy. This was great practice for busy big fleet starting.

3 Short windward Leeward races were held with close racing in all heats. Ed Bannerman sailing Northerly took first place on count back, with David Meehan on Fuse 2nd. The final places were closely battled out with Kate Best showing consistency to finish 3rd. Kate is gearing up for a tilt at the ladies nationals championships trophy later this year.

Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at MBSC with club putting on plenty beers and a warm curry after racing. Thanks to Brendon Green for officiating the racing, hopefully next time he is on the water in a Sabre, rather than a RIB. The next MBSC winter series racing in on the 23rd of July, hope to see you there

Race 2    24/6/17

Sabres sailed two races in light to moderate conditions at EFYC. In a South Easterly wind, which was variable in strength and direction, 2 races were sailed, with a strong outgoing tide, which complicated matters.

In the first race, Pete Coop and Peter Johnston led, but Peter was pressed and passed by Blair Mickeljon and Dave Quin, but in the fluctuating conditions (not unusual for East Fremantle in a South Easterly), Pete extended his lead and Peter finished second, while Blair was third.

Although the forecast said the wind would increase, for the second race, it actually reduced, but two circuits of the triangular course were completed. Pete Coop again got in front  though Dan Carlton was ahead briefly, followed by Peter Johnston,  who eventually finished second by a good margin,but the following group hotly contested the minor placings, with Dan Carlton finishing in 3rd place.

The PDSC Club Champions were awarded at a black tie event on the 27th May 2017

Congrats to the winners

1st Tony Carr

2nd Clayton Erwin

3rd Ian James
