Canterbury Laser Champs 2019

2019 Canterbury Laser Champs Results

Over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th November, 14 Full rigs, 4 4.7’s and 4 Radials competed at Christchurch Yacht Club. The racing was combined with the P Class trials.

We had a good spring tide and a window to work with for the days races in the Christchurch estuary. 

Saturday the breeze came in and we had 10-15 knots NE in Race 1 and 15-20 knots for Race 2. On Sunday we started Race 3 in a NW 20 knots which shifted to SW after the first 2 legs, so there was a lot of “follow the leader” reaches. Race 4 saw a SW to NE wind shift with 2 minutes to go. So, a downwind start it was, with the course again being a difficult Outer 3 type. The race officer Peter Stokell tried in desperation to get another start but the wind was doing 360’s.

Thanks again to CYC for the great event.
