States Report

The Sharpie state championship was held over the Labour Day long weekend at MOFSC. With 4 heats completed and 5 heats still to be races the competition was wide open. Coming into the weekend Vita Brevis helmed by David Meehan and Crewed by Brendon ‘boogs’ Green and Rhyss Edwards were leading the series with 3 bullets and a 4th. They were closely followed by Craig Mann on Impact and Nick Heggart on Mona.

The light shifty NE winds proved challenging to sail to on the flat water of comet bay under the hot sun. The lead changed many times during races with Trevor Date and his crew on ‘Blind Date’ showing some pace. The breezes were similar on Sunday and the decision to race all three races and finish the series was made.
