SB3 Wintersun championship 2011

OceanBuro Performance Sailing and Maroochy Sailing Club have combined their resources to host the important SB3 Wintersun championship on the open offshore course off Mooloolaba next month.

The present Flag Officers of the Maroochy Sailing Club which has the proud history of promoting dingy sailing on the tricky Sunshine Coast estuary for the past 52 years have issued the Notice Of Race which has attracted entries from Hobart, Sydney, Newcastle, Bowen and Sunshine Coast crews.

Heading the small but impressively competitive fleet will be the specialist Middle Harbour Yacht Club skipper and Montreal Olympic Bronze Medallist Ian Brown and his One Design Racing team while Rod Jones who finished fourth in the 2011 World Championship in England returns to the tiller of Club Marine.

'Glenn Bourke our World championship skipper is unavailable so I will get the chance to ‘drive’ again'. Rod Jones said.
However Rod Jones the only skipper to win two Audi Australian IRC ocean racing championships is an ideal deputy having the personal versatility to be an equally proficient crew member after he combined with Glenn Bourke and Greg MacAllansmith to record the best ever result by an Australian crew in the recent SB3 World championship.

Close tactical racing for the SB3 Wintersun trophy will become a family affair for Rod Jones and Greg MacAllansmith when they combine their experience to encourage their sons Luc Jones and Joel MacAllansmith to enjoy their initial introduction to one design fleet racing with and against a number of Australia’s high profile sailors.

For nine year old Optimist dinghy sailor Luc Jones the youngest sailor it will mean the first step of following his father’s footsteps.

Interest will also focus on the talented Queensland Academy of Sport Laser skipper Klade Hauschildt when he contests his first major SB3 regatta with Maroochy River sailors Toby and John Pearce.

This trio of individually clever sailors face the task of overcoming the important class racing experience but the nominated skipper Klade Hauschildt who is ranked among the best in Australian Olympic class racing is expected to make up any shortfall in boat speed with his proven tactical strategy.

However the career results of Ian Brown supported with the class racing experience of his One Design Sailing crew suggests they will start as the regatta favourite closely followed by Mooloolaba helmsman Phil Gray in Dulon Polish, Rod Jones Club Marine and Klade Hauschildt OceanBuro 1.

This will be the first of a series of regattas off Mooloolaba which will provide the Australian fleet with the vital opportunities to improve their boat speed and crew technique in preparation to be on the pace for the World championship at Hamilton Island in December 2012.
