NSW Flying 11 State Titles Report

Author: Niamh Meehan (13)

The New South Wales State Titles Part 1 was held in Port Kembla, NSW on the 3rd and 4th November.  The Flying 11 Sailing Team had 4 of our 5 boats at RQYS representing Queensland.

There were 60 boats competing, 54 in the open fleet and 6 in the intermediate fleet.  The weekend had mixed conditions with up to 17 knots on Saturday and light winds and rain on Sunday. We participated in three races. It was great to experience a large regatta with a huge start line and we were also reminded of the black flag ruling 😊.

A special thank you to RQYS for the lend of the support boat and also to the Port Kembla Sailing Club for hosting the event and lending us their facilities.

It was overall a great weekend.  Bring on part 2 held at Lake Macquarie.
