Double Sanga at South Queensland 10R Championship


Jun 25, 2019

It was a Sanga "One-Two" at the South Queensland 10R Championship sailed on Kimberley Lake, Banora Point NSW on 22 June.

\images\20190624_QLD_10R_P3We all arrived at a stunning morning at Kimberley Lake, Banora Point where the Twin Towns Radio Modellers hosted the South East Queensland 10R Championships.

Twelve boats enjoyed a fresh but cold breeze in the morning which from time to time challenged A rigs,  although  the occasional thought to maybe change to a B rig kept us guessing for most of the day, but most stayed with the A rig and toughed it out as the occasional gusts made for some interesting racing.

After lunch the wind settled in and supplied us with a fast and challenging afternoon of racing.

Bill Clancy (PRO) and the team from Twin Towns should be congratulated for running an event that allowed for competitive fair and fast racing for these formula 1’s of the Radio Yachting world.

Ben Taylor with his Sanga was the eventual runaway winner picking up 7 race wins with Andy Holly with a brand new Sanga came second with 6 wins and Frank Russell coming in for the third place with some very consistent racing.

\images\20190624_QLD_10R_P4A special congratulations to these three place getters but also to all the competitors as everyone enjoyed the spirit of how the day was run and won and a huge thankyou to all those that travelled to come up and compete  you are welcome back anytime.

We are proud to say that 10R racing in Queensland is healthy and this competition  proved exactly that  Bring on upcoming events.
