Geoff Kirk, Luke Parker, along with super coach Brett Beyer, and occasional winter sailing radial guest Craig Davis travelled to the four day South Pacific laser masters championships at RQYS last weekend.
The weather was a mixed bag. Day 1 was a drifter with massive wind shifts and inconsistencies, Day 2 bought 3 long races in a solid 18 to 25+ knots, day 3 was a glass out until late 5 knot sea breeze filled in for one race, and day 4 was blown out with no racing possible.
As usual, Brett gave a masterclass across all conditions and discarded a “1” - picket fence. Luke and Geoff had good regattas and both finished in the top 10.
It was a well run regatta, hosted at a strong and organised club, with an onsite hotel and great cafes within walking distance. Of particular note, the change rooms would make our Commodore swoon. They’re seriously flash.
The SPLM is an annual event and well worth the trip north.
