International Etchells Class
2015 Victorian Championship
March 6-9th , 2015
Triad, which is crewed By Bill Browne, Jake Newman and John Bertrand AM have won the 2015 Etchells Victorian State Championship. They are known for their mastery of grabbing a title on the last day, even when it may not have seemed entirely likely, just as occurred at Adelaide recently for the Australian Etchells Championship. The waters of Geelong’s Corio Bay proved to be equally fruitful for them and a pair of wins on the day took them to four in total from the six races.
No one really knew, but clearly the crews were after some repetition methodology when the 1100hrs start arrived for today’s races at the 2015 Etchells Victorian State Championship. Too keen, as it would turn out, for the result was a General Recall, with a good number over before the gun. Time for the Committee to also get yet more practice as they reset the start to be able to go again, but this time it would be under the Code Flag ‘U’. Mercifully, it is not as final as it’s all black sibling, which excludes you there and then. So whilst ‘U’ essentially means you’re unable to go racing on this next start, it does allow you to rejoin once more should that one end up being a General Recall, as well.
From the outset, the cool and grey day did not inspire. However, the warmth and genuine welcome showed by the whole of the Royal Geelong Yacht Club (RGYC) was both invigorating and motivating. Once the day was done, there was just the one residual feeling that you became present to and on reflection, you found it to be envy.

Notice of Race Enter Online
After another busy January hosting the I14 Worlds and another huge Festival of Sails, Royal Geelong Yacht Club is giving its team of volunteers only a short break before being called on again for the 2015 Etchells Victorian Championship to be held over the Victorian Labour Day weekend 6-9 March.
The flat waters and good breezes of Corio Bay are a favourite for the Etchells sailors. The local fleet has had strong and consistent numbers racing for the past couple of seasons are looking forward to matching it on their home track with racers from over Victoria and the nation.
Ross Wilson will be joining the event as PRO bringing his vast experience with the Etchells, as well as Corio Bay after being a race officer for the I14s and FoS.
The first of the entries are in and Geelong Fleet looks forward to receiving yours!
Regards, Tim Clark Fleet Captain
