The 2018 Etchells World Championship based out of Brisbane's Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron got a full compliment of nine races in for the 94-boat armada that sailed on Moreton Bay.

Well done to all who attended, and the many, many Volunteers that it made it all possible. A big shout out to Ross and Kevin Wilson (IROs) for making the on water racing as good as it was in trying conditions, which meant there was a lot of waiting... David irvine's entire team delivered off the water, as well, and this had the competitors all smiling.

This wrap up video from Mitch Pearson/SurfSailKite includes live action and drone footage, along with interviews I conducted with various parties, including new World Champion, Martin Hill.

Short, sharp, and certainly very sweet! Rumours of no wind towards the tail of the 2019 Etchells Australian Championship would appear to have been great over-exaggerated. For sure it is not exactly blowing dogs off chains, but awesome seabreezes that kick in are utterly delightful. Posted on 17 Jan
