2016 Wallagoot Regatta a spectacular success

The Wallagoot Lake Boat Club hail their regatta as a spectacular success. Secretary Tony Hastings said, “we aim to host a fun, friendly and successful event – we did that. 19 entrants was about what we expected, though of course we hoped for more. The weather was warm and overcast with light winds, which enabled the four divisions of boats to contest five races.” Division 1 included all boats with yardstick over 113. Winner was Reif Oliver on his tiny Bic O’Pen, 2nd Gote Vykstrom (Laser Radial) and 3rd Neil Fisher (Sabre). Division 2 had just 2 trailer-sailors, with our Commodore Brian Wright winning ahead of Roger’s boat, the Margaret D. Division 3 included a great variety of boats, with yardsticks less than 113. Peter “Master Blaster” dominated on his Devoti D-one, often leaving the rest of the fleet far behind. 2nd Tony Hastings and Luca Dorrough (NS14) and 3rd local champ Rob Morton (RS100). Division 4, multihulls, saw Maricat state and national champ Rod Anderson claim his biggest prize – the WLBC Regatta. Tim Symons (Hobie17) was 2nd. We were all grateful to the many volunteers who made the event a success; Phil Yeomans, Bob Harris and Darren Joey Lydiard on the Committee Boat, Mike Stove, Terry Ubrihien, Jeff Hope and Ian Curtis on Rescue 1, Sian Morton, Annabel Dorrough, Leslee Hope, Terry Kirby and everyone else who helped in the kitchen, Rob Morton for cranking out the results, and all others. We especially thank Gateway Lifestyle (Kalaru) for sponsoring the event, hosting our Race Officer Phil Yeomans who travelled from Sydney to run the event.
