Two 125s left Elwood Sailing Club via a container for the National Titles in Perth. Which was a mission in itself – with a race to get the boats there on time.
Jamie Thomson took Slow Boat and Geoff, Hugh and Rufus Craig took Boarlistic. Despite the weather being extremely hot – typical WA – the regatta was extremely competitive but amazing fun. The winds were lighter than expected with some quite shifty weather. The series was successful with a win of the Open Title by Jamie Thomson and Katie Gill (Ex Elwood SC members – who now live in Perth), this was Jamie’s eighth title and Katie’s third.
We also took back a trophy for the club by winning the Family Division. Triumph by Elwood’s SC members and ex members all around
