Dave Suda wins the 2012 Australian National Championship

In a nail biting finish that went down to the last race finish positions, Dave Suda and his crew of Herschel, Luke, Sam and Rachel sailing Pacemaker won a well deserved 2012 National Championship by one point from Ben Lamb sailing Alyn Stevenson’s Fun 2 with last years Nationals winner Sean Kirkjian sailing Sailpac.

In PHS the winner was local sailor Jamie Goode from fellow SA sailor and national Measurer Peter Stevens and Dave Suda. As csutomary the the PHS placeings can’t be won by OD place getters so third on PHS goes to Melbourne sailor and previous Nationals winner (10 years ago) Hugo Ottaway.

We hope to bring you more stories, pictures and views on the regatta as soon as more people write them (send them to Simon !) (go to it scribes)

2012 J24 Australian Championships

Day one of the 2012 National Titles in being held at the CYCSA in Adelaide has been a bonanza for Ben Lamb and Artur Crothers sailing Fun 2. Sean Kirkjian also from NSW is lying second with Adam Evans from Victoria in third.

In glorious sunshine and shirts and short weather with a calm 8 knots building to a 15 knot sea breeze the 15 boat fleet enjoyed superb sailing conditions.

Dave Suda in his new-ish Italian boat cleared out in the first race to win by nearly half a leg ad must have been feeling pretty good, but by tthe end of the day with two OCS calls was back down the results. Hugo Ottaway is also having an average series so far and dropped one of his crew over the side in the last race to add a less than perfect touch. However the Italian boats seem to have good speed as shown by both Dave and Ben.

Back in the pack, chomping on the heels of the winners, is a very close group of very good sailors. The racing is extremely tight and one small mistake takes you to the back of the pack very quickly.

Four races were sailed today and another four are planned for tomorrow with two on Monday. Winds are expected to be the same tomorrow with lighter winds on Monday.

Here are todays results.
