In first place, Rod Jackman (centre), 2nd place Michael Hickman (left), and 3rd place Mathew Gray (right). Great sailing by all, congratulations, from all the crew.
Prior to the start of the first race today all members brought their boats head to wind on the start line as a mark of respect to Allan Furmage who passed away last week.
Allan was a long term member of the Risdon Brook Radio Yacht Club, he was secretary until last year and had served in this position for at least 8 years.
Allan was a mentor to many new members and always happy to give advice whether it be building a boat or setting it up for racing.
His jovial personality both on and off the water and knowledge of club administration will be sadly missed by all.

As we all grow older it becomes more noticeable how time flies by. The presentation for the podium winners the 2015 IOM Tasmanian State Championship is just one example. Whatever the circumstances for the delay in presentation, yesterday was a special occasion to celebrate and applaud the winners. To the 2015 Tasmanian State IOM Champion, Mathew Gray, in 2nd place Michael Hickman, and 3rd place Rodney Jackman, we all congratulate you Amigos!
