4th of February 2019, Australia, Formula Australian Championships

Australian 2019 Nationals

Myall Lakes in NSW
The event (20-23 of January) was held with the Raceboard Nationals, and attracted a combined fleet of 47 boards.

Brett Morris took out the Formula event, from Leo Sharp and Rick Murray.

Across the two fleets, there were also seven sailors over 60, proving the growing appeal of the sport across the demographics.

Conditions were predominantly light, with five races completed across the four days.

Thanks go to our PRO, John O’Brien, who volunteered his time to travel from Brisbane to manage the racing. He worked seamlessly with mark boat skipper Craig Ferris, and was assisted by volunteers Karen Murden, Conor Coleman, Brad Younger and Sue Plodr. Great photos from David “Belly” Bell. Posting updates was tricky given the lack of connectivity, but the location was very picturesque and it was a great venue for social events, with virtually everyone on site together.
Next year the combined Raceboard and Formula Nationals will be in Brisbane, at RQYS. Dates will be confirmed shortly.
