Results: 2018 A Class Queensland Championships

Qld takes the record this year for the largest fleet at  a State Championships – 31 boats : 19 foilers, 12 Classic discipline, including 11 New South Welshman.

3 days of lively south easterlies  and occasional rain squalls saw Stevie Brewin add another trophy to his cabinet and  Darren Bundock firmly attached to second spot. Best placed Queenslanders were Matt Homan from Brisbane and Adam Beattie from Cairns with 3rd and 4th, separated by a point and a half.

Adams determination was demonstrated by having to travel via Charters Towers and an extra 300km  to get here. It was just lovely to see these 2 ‘boys’ with their wives and young children enjoying the foreshore at Hervey Bay.

Matt, Adam and my husband Paul (8th) were the only QLDers in the top 10.

Andrew Landenberger showed the floaters are not to be dismissed in 15 -20 knots with an overall 5th and was first of the classic discipline fleet.

Overall the 3 day championship was a great regatta of racing in stronger blustery breezes.  Despite some difficulties for the foilers getting to the racing area with their deep rudders in the low Easter spring tides, there were no significant collisions, no broken masts and no protests. The southern visitors also had opportunity to check out Hervey Bay – the water, the beach , the accommodation and the entertainment options. Hervey Bay Sailing Club also had some learnings  and challenges not which the least of was the complete sinking on the club tractor at bottom of the tide on Good Friday.  It was a “good Friday”  with a local excavator proprietor donating his time and machinery for a successful retrieve and HBSC shed captain Daryl Petersen reviving the red beast overnight for Saturdays racing.

Next regattas will be LCSC All Boats August 25/26,  HBSC multi-hull challenge Sep 29/30, HYC Humpy Bash October 20/21, LCSC Cat challenge Nov 3/4.

See you on the water,

Information about security breach

Posted on IACA website http://www.a-cat.org/?q=node/1259

Dear members, dear sailors,

In 2016, we have conducted a world-wide poll using the Typeform.com provider. We just received a message that Typeform had a data breach, which affected the poll we sent out. Typeform reports that an external attacker managed to get unauthorized access to respondent data and downloaded it.

Beside your answers to the poll, the respondent data contained your name, country and email. These informations could mis-used to contact you. We recommend that you watch out for potential phishing scams, or spam emails. Because we didn’t collect any other personal details, I don’t think the risk is high enough to bother, but I found appropriate to inform you about this case.

Even if I’m not directly responsible for this issue, I apologize for the inconvenience it may cause. If you have any more question, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,
Charles
