Guest Cormeister Posted August 21, 2007 Report Share Posted August 21, 2007 Just a quick post to let all know that Nacra has a new King of the Lake, the winner of this years regatta was Nev Thompson on a Nacra F18 Infussion (he also placed 2nd overall in the Allboats regatta), second in the King of the Lake was David Merrett on a Nacra 14sq (also got 8th in the Allboats) and third was Leon McNeill on a Nacra 16sq (also got 9th in the Allboats). The encouragement award was presented to Barry Lane and Toni on a Nacra 5.2, these guys finished all 4 races in the series and managed a very respectable 13th in the Allboats regatta (37 boat fleet). This years fleet was smaller than normal, however all that participated had a great time at Lake Cootharaba (its actually really hard not to have a good time there). Leon and David devserve a special mention for completing all 4 races, David proved that those 14sq's are quick upwind when theres a bit of breeze about, he was always in the top group of boats to the first mark, and Leon also rates a special mention for completing all races, most think he was hungry for a win. The weekend was also the first time the new Nacra Tent was used (Surprisingly those little pegs managed to keep it in place all weekend), this tent should be a great meeting point at up coming regattas for all Nacra sailors to get together, have a drink and talk sailing. Thanks to all the Nacra sailers that attended, see you on the water this season. Corey Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
