The current season has been limited due to the change of clubs and a modified fitness program.
Fun2 sailed in the Nationals Championships and also the South Australian State Championships.
Our venture to Melbourne to compete in the National Champions was filled full of adventure, with a late arrival at the Championship after my daughters wedding. The Late arrival did not deter the crew and we fronted up first race with a great 3 rd place..
The Championship was the hardest regatta for many years with enormous depth in the field and we finished most races in the top 5 and just got pipped for 6th place outright.
On the last day after leading in a few heats during the Regatta we finally won out first National heat race.
The trip back proved interesting with us blowing the head gasket on the Jeep, but in true Aussie tradition out boat was on another 4WD within 10 Min’s and on the way back home. 10 Min’s later the next team member picked me up after I managed to get my car towed to the nearest town. A week later we picked up the vehicle on a car trailer
Last weekend we sailed in the South Championships and had a hard Regatta but blew 2 races when leading to hand it to No Eye Deer. We finished second giving us 4 titles and 3 2nds out 9 State Championships.
Next season will be interesting ? New Club and maybe a new boat!
