42nd NS14 National Championship Report


04/01/11 - OVER-THE-MOON PROMOTIONS 42nd NS14 CHAMPIONSHIPS

Peter Vaiciurgis won his ninth national NS14 title from 45 other entrants from Queensland, NSW, South Australia and the ACT. He teamed up for the first time with Tina Babbage as crew in “2031”.

Sailed on Lake Burley Griffin under the professional management of the Canberra Yacht Club and Peter Smith as PRO, the 8 race series ran from 28th December to 2nd January 2011.

Conditions ranged from a 5 to 8 knot ENE in the first race, through to 8 to 15 knot W or NW winds on race days two to four, with the final race day sailed in a 5 to 10 knot NNW. Races ranged in length from 45 minutes to just over 11/2 hours for the leaders.

Peter and Tina made the title safe with 3 wins and 3 seconds in the first 6 races. However, there was an exciting tussle to fill the runner-up placings between Sean Edmiston/Anna Lashko in “Merlin” who won the first and last races of the series; Rohan Nosworthy/Sophie Holt in “Aqua Rodent” who placed consistently in the top six; and Hugh Tait/Taylor Hodgkinson in “Carbon Neutral” and Kylie Vaiciurgis/Rebecca Wiley sailing “Knot Again”, who each one a race. In the end it was “Knot Again” taking second and “Carbon Neutral” placing third. All these sailors are from NSW.

A strong attraction of the NS14 class is the range of categories that competitors can enter within the regatta. These categories are run as separate series, and the $4,500 in prizes were spread around the fleet as follows:

• The Handicap series was equally tight with “Jolly Roger” Steve and Callum Cartwright snatching the title in the last race; 2nd “Shiraz” Chris Eddes/Cassandra Schlimback; and 3rd “Twisted Sister” Sandra Donovan/Laura Glynn
• James and Paddy Macken led all the way in the Classic Boat series (boats older than the Aero 9 design) in “Crosstown Traffic” ; 2nd “Rhapsody” David Cox/Leo O’Keeffe; and 3rd “Abelia Botox” Jim Reeder/Andrew Hunt
• National Female Skipper was Kylie Vaiciurgis/Rebecca Wiley in “Knot Again”
• National Junior Champion was Kanya Raj/Alice Fraser in “Purple Patch”
• National Heavyweight Champion was Adam Cause/Jeremy Dodds in “Talk to Hand”
• National Veteran Champion was Michael Hitchens/Mary Tulip in “Battlestar”
• National Jack and Jill Champions were Rohan Nosworthy/Sophie Holt in “Aqua Rodent”
• National Family Champions were David and Henry Stabback in “The Hairy Lemon”
• The 51st Percentile finisher was “Bandit” sailed by Philip and Georgina Scott
• The first boat with non-carbon boom was “Merlin” sailed by Sean Edmiston/Anna Lashko

The series’ success was underpinned by principal sponsor Over-the-Moon Promotions and by Barracouta Sails; Brewer Sails; CST Composites; C-Tech; Landenberger Sails; YAACT; and Zhik.
