Burford takes Queensland RC Laser Championship for 2020


Jul 20, 2020

Another spectacular warm Gold Coast day with clear blue skies greeted the 14 competitors that represented a total of four Queensland Yacht Clubs on Sunday 19th July.

As the day progressed the shifting breeze filled in from east south east and rose to 5 to 8 knots, giving the sailors some challenging sailing conditions so a total of 15 races were able to be completed.

PRYC wish to thank all of the competitors for making the day a great success , plus a special thank you to David Black (SLMM) for scoring, Laurie Hinchcliff (Sailing Secretary, the event organizer) and the experienced Race officer Bill Clancy for running and managing the days event with his team of club volunteers.
