Lake barely tolerable lives up to expectations: University Sailing

'Lasers hit the water! - 2011 Australian University Fleet Racing Regatta'    Tom Mallet
Today the Australian University Fleet Racing Championship kicked off in Canberra with representatives from eight universities competing for the national championship. The creativity of university students was on show when Canberra’s autumn weather lived up to expectations delivering below average wind conditions.

To kick off the day’s racing activities the students made do with their limited resources to organise a stand up paddle board relay race using the available windsurfing gear. The students from University of New South Wales showed their lack of balance early on with the University of Sydney cruising home to take the victory.

The wind came in late in the afternoon allowing the boats to get out on the lake for the first day racing but unfortunately the PRO had already called it a day. The fleet headed out for a few social races, making the day truly worthwhile. The laser fleet had some excellent evening racing for those who took to the water. There are representatives from; ANU, Canberra Uni, UTS, UNSW, USYD, Melbourne, Monash and Wollongong. The regatta is once again delivering a high level of racing with international, national and state champions taking part. The ANU shed is operating as a wonderful home for those from interstate.

For the second day of racing, the forecast is looking more hopeful with 9-12.25 knots forecast. As the first day of racing did not contribute to the final championship, the event is still open to any university students or university alumni keen to be part of the regatta.

Quote of the day: 'There must be balance'
