The 2012 Laser Radial Men’s World Championship 2012 is being hosted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, with fifty-two competitors from nine countries sailing on Moreton Bay.

Day one was breeze free and it looked as if the second day might go the same way.

However Principal Race Officer Kevin Wilson held the fleet ashore for an hour or so and the day gradually built. The fleet began racing in a seven knot breeze and the rain came in hard in a series of squalls as the day progressed. Three races were sailed and the boats went wide attempting to catch any breeze they could.

Overall winner today, Daniel Smith (AUS), said modestly, ‘I had a couple of good races – I felt relaxed and comfortable. It just seemed to work. The wind was a bit tricky and the rain made it trickier because you couldn’t see much. ‘Daniel ranked 10th overall in the Youth Worlds.

Tristan Brown (AUS) came second overall, with a win the a fourth and a sixth. ‘It was quite tricky… the wind was swinging a lot with the clouds and the rain. It was hard to work out where to go. I came back in two of the races OK because I was a fair way behind. But Daniel sailed really well so he’s the person to beat I guess,’ he said.

Kiwi sailor Mahia Pepper was third overall, with a 4, 2, 8 score line. He said, ‘The wind was really nice – it was sort of consistent in pressure if not in direction. I had a bad start but recovered well. ‘Mahia is fresh from the World Laser Youths where he ranked thirteenth overall, and he is well placed here.

Ben Walkemever was ranking fifth, with a 12, 3, and 5. He said he would have rather sailed in breezier conditions. ‘The wind was just enough but not really enough for an 83 kilo sailor.’

Ben ranked seventh overall in the recent Laser Radial Youth World Championship also sailed out of Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron.
