Mudlark State Championships 2011 Rick Steuart
Mudlark State Championships 2011, hosted at Mounts Bay Sailing Club, was a perfect Easter long weekend with fantastic sailing weather.

Spectators enjoyed some fantastic close racing with exciting scores to match. A total of only two points separated the top two sailors in the gold fleet. The championship was won this year by Perth Dinghy Club sailor, Emelia Horn who last year, took the Bronze and who has worked hard improving her tactical skills to take the gold this year.

In second place was Holly Hunt from Mounts Bay Sailing Club who also progressed up the ladder from a fifth placing in last year’s championship, closely followed by Matthew Schneider in third dramatically climbing from ninth last year.

Young Bradley Nock who placed first in last year’s Silver Fleet rose to fifth place in the Gold fleet this year.

These young sailors showed enormous form and class and, as protégées of previous Club world champions such as Steen Thomas, will be the ones to watch in coming years as they advance onto the sailing stage of Western Australia.

As always these events don’t just happen and particular thanks was recorded to Mudlark President Steve Schneider and MBSC stalwarts Dave and Tanya Nock, Chris Hunt, Nigel Briggs and all of the parents who pitched in for the weekend.

Blue skies, sunshine, 23 deg C, clean air, and the whole place looks as if has put on a party frock and got lit up. Wonderful.
