RC Laser District Championships

23rd and 24th October 2021

Gosport Model Boat and Yacht Club ran the Southern District Championships over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th October.

There were 16 competitors in total and all were competing in a single start for each race. The Race Officer and his team had to cope with difficult wind conditions, which for most races was directly across the narrowest section of the lakes. This made it difficult to set a decent length beat, however he overcame this problem by setting a zig zag course, which enabled him to sets a number of beats across the lake in one course.

Over the whole weekend of racing, we managed to get in 32 individual races, which must be some kind of record.

Saturday’s racing saw everyone opting for the A rig. With the wind generally suiting this rig, there were just a few overpowering moments towards the end of the day.

Sunday the wind had increased and everyone opted for the B rig which seemed to suit the conditions well.

Both days saw some very close racing throughout the day, with boats finishing in tight order and much place changing throughout all the races.

The club kept the competitors and helpers well fed, with free Tea Coffee and homemade Cakes throughout both days.

Lawrie Draper (GMYBC) and Dave Fowler (Blackpool & Fylde), were vying with each other, throughout both days for the leadership. Both getting some good results, with the occasional bad result thrown in. In the end Lawrie took the top spot to become the new RC Laser District Champion, with Dave Fowler in 2nd place.

3rd was Chris Moore (GMYBC)

4th Ralph Scholfield (GMYBC)

5th David Swainson (GMYBC)
