Qld National titles havoc

Recommended Posts

The terrible weather that southern Qld has been experiencing is causing major disruption for the various classes attempting to hold national titles in this region. The A's and Paper Tigers at Hervey Bay have mangaged to get some races in (refer http://www.herveybaysailingclub.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=74&Itemid=2), but it looks like the Taipan nationals at RQYS have been completely blown-out (refer http://www.rqys.com.au/index.php/department/marine-sports/).

Obviously very disappointing for competitors and organisers. At least the rain will be a boost to Brisbane's dams.

Ironically, sailing conditions have been good in SA, when in the past many nationals have been disrupted by strong winds.

To say it's been windy in SEQ the last 2 weeks is an understatement,It's been friggin crazy .I live a couple of streets from the water at Moreton Bay and in 27 years of sailing I haven't seen anything like it ,we've had stong wind and gale warnings for the past 2 weeks ,earlier on this week we had a solid 45 to 50 knots at Cape Moreton for 3 or 4 days ,

Went down to RQYS Manly yesterday ,Taipan Nationals ,Cherub ,16 ft skiff and contender Nats ,,,no sailing there all week.

No sailing anywhere unless you sailboard or Kitesurf.........

I went sailboarding on Wednesday for the first time in 12 mtns and we had 35 knots at the end of my street ,I'm still paying for it 2 days later.

I've been trying to get offshore fishing/diving for the last 2 weeks ,I've given that idea up as a bad joke , got to back to work Monday so I can only wait for next Christmas I suppose.

Queensland drought season one day..........cyclonic the next....
