The podium for the inaugural Hobby Warehouse DF 95 'George Fish Memorial Trophy' Tasmanian Championship has now been decided for 2018. The event was held over two days, 25th-26th February 2018 at Montrose Bay, the venue for the 2018 ARYA Nationals.
Congratulations go to Peter Darcey (the Silver Fox) for his consistency and boat speed to take out the regatta. Two points behind was Lisa Blackwood in second place. Full results can be found on the website.
Our sincere thanks go to John Gard who was the PRO for the Championship, held on the back of two weeks of recording EVERY heat/race finisher during the ARYA Nationals. His data scorer Anne Cole-Cook was there beside him all the way as well. We are indebted to your efforts thank you both.
Thank you also to Hobby Warehouse as the Major Sponsor of the event and providing the DF 95 Yacht and spare parts for the raffle.

The solid breeze sorted out all the problems with half the fleet, including me with an overloaded winch shutting down. All the fleet went to C2's and still at times boats were over 'canvased'.
At least I was able to grab these pics of the four stayers. Well done Cookie for showing us how it's done.
