Sail-World.com : 35th Panmure Lagoon SC RSA Regatta won by Pupuke Laser sailor

35th Panmure Lagoon SC RSA Regatta won by Pupuke Laser sailor

'Racing at PLSC'    Chantal Grass

The 2012 RSA Regatta will be in its 35th year and has its origins with the Mt Wellington/Panmure RSA Club, who generously provided in March 1977 the RSA Laser Trophy.

The Trophy escaped largely unscathed an arson to the Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club premises in October 2007 and continues to remain a unique trophy won by few and coveted by many.

Mr Leon Matthews, President of the Mt Wellington/Panmure RSA was pleased to provide continuous support to this event and will be donating miniature trophies for the winners to take home with them. To mark this anniversary an RSA official will be handing out the trophies at the prize giving.

The RSA Regatta is to be held on the 26th February and is generally raced over one day with a schedule of 5 races sailed on Panmure Lagoon. This throws up a challenge to any sailor brave enough to pit their wits against not only the local sailors but the trickeries of the basin. This is a place where nerves of steel, determination & sheer skill are required to succeed.

Last year’s winner for the second year in a row was Luuk Van Basten Batenburg from Pupuke Boating Club taking away the first prize of a Laser top section. This year we have another section up for grabs as well as many other prizes for the first , second and third placings, there will be as well a spot prize draw.

Most sailors are almost guaranteed to come away with some spoils to remember the days battle on the water thanks to our Regatta sponsors: Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre, the Water Shed, Boating NZ, Coromandel Cacti, Sugarcraft, Yeehah Fishing Tackle, Joy Adams Sails and Wettie Wetsuit. They will certainly have a great day to remember, sailing at Panmure Lagoon followed by a friendly BBQ

Lastly just as a reminder; this Regatta is for the brave at heart, so if you have those qualities put this Regatta into your Diary. For more information and a copy of the Notice of Race, consult the Panmure Lagoon Sailing Club website. http://www.plsc.org.nz .
