Matt Owen and Andrew Reed win the 52nd Australian Championship at Lake Macquarie Yacht Club
Lake Macquarie used to be a hot spot for Flying Fifteens in the 1980’s being the home club of Glen Coulton the 1986 FF World Champion, so it was time to return to support the establishment of a new fleet of Flying Fifteens in NSW at Botany Bay Y C.
33 Flying Fifteens lined up for the start of the Invitation Race for the Uffa Fox Trophy which was sailed in light airs and won by David Yu and Chris Nelson in “Tuffan Up”.
The series for the Coweslip Trophy was sailed over 8 races , so dominant were Matt Owen and crew member Andrew Reed aboard AUS3684 "Defcon1" they did not need to start in the last race to win the title. The Canberra Yacht Club pair were right at home in the fresh 20-25 knot ENE breezes that prevailed throughout the regatta to record a perfect score of 6 from 6 scored races (they actually dropped a 2nd place). Their win was never in doubt!
"Idswapthisforabundy" Adam Hawkins and Ben Jones from Melbourne sailed a very solid regatta to finish second with a score of 11 points whist "Lapse In reality" Peter Milne and Phillip Dubbin, also from Melbourne won third place from Western Australian David Yu and Chris Nelson sailing "Tuffan Up" on a count back.
A very high percentage of the fleet were eligible for the "Masters" division while precious few contested the "Rising Star" trophy. These boats still have plenty to offer young sailors in terms of speed and boat handling challenges. ffull Results
