Thursday Snippets, 28 July

Sailing at Albert Sailing Club both days on 30/31st July weekend. Club sailing saturday with club race at 2pm, and another VIODA training session from 1pm on sunday. Midweek weather forecast for weekend generally looks more promising with sunny and max of 14 both days. Light to moderate winds saturday and likely stronger on sunday.

The World ILCA6 (Laser Radial) championships in Houston, Texas are underway, with ASC’s Hamish Gilsenan in the under 17’s fleet in a total fleet of 212 boats from 35 countries. After 4 races at the end of Day Two the six Australian youth were placed in the middle third of the fleet.
A report from Hamish’s dad Jon Rawlings who is there supporting Hamish was that the racing was very close, with except for a few locals, every sailor in the event at or near the top of their respective national youth Laser fleet,
The ILCA 6 Worlds consists of a 12 race series, with 2 back to back races each day. Further progress reports will be posted on the Victorian Laser Association Facebook

A post on the Mordialloc Sailing Club website on 26 July announces MSC July/August Winter Series Cancelled. Due to major works on the creek wall by Parks Victoria, MSC cannot launch safety or course boats.  They are hopeful of running the Sail Mordi Regatta on the 27th & 28th of August
