19 November 2017 - Championship of Nations 2017 - Result:
What an outstanding event the CON 2017 turned out to be. The location was fantastic and with 54 boats racing it was no mean feat to run a smooth contest. Thanks to all the volunteers that made the event such a success.
The NZL contingent, made up of Graham Watson (NZL02) and Mark Shakeshaft "Shakey" (NZL25), had a great comp with some pleasing results. NZL02 picked up the Master Trophy for first in 50-59 with a 6th place overall and NZL25 ended up 29th, some good performances but consistency is the key. Mark has only been sailing RC Lasers for 3 months and his baptism into fleet racing was one of fire. Having only ever raced in a fleet of four before, a steep learning curve indeed to race in a full fleet. Graham credits his high placing to having gone to Sydney prior to the event to race in some larger fleets.
Congratulations to Scott Fleming (AUS38) who won the contest convincingly)
