Queensland Impulse State Titles

                 The Port Curtis Sailing Club fielded a strong fleet
                at the Qld Impulse State Titles last weekend;  held at Lake Cootharaba 
                on the Sunshine coast. 


while I won't waste time raving about the blue waters of the lake 
I did find a few tricks in Photoshop to at least kill some of the muddy brown.

While the rest were off in the Impulse race, Morgan was competing among a mixed mono fleet for the Mono Masters

and her competition looked a bit like this ...

and this...

                                                  though this was a bit later in the day ..

The wind blew on Saturday; but on Sunday the first race was slow and dull; 8 knots from the North dropped to 2 knots from the North West and it was all looking like a long hot afternoon.


You can always tell who the paddle boarders are ..

As i said , luckily for us all, the wind arrived 
and made the day a whole lot more interesting ...

and while all of this was going on... 
a few other boats were having an interesting afternoon

                                               the rescue crews spent a busy afternoon

but the dedicated rescue crew of Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club 
took a leap into action ..

and even  if you are 6 ft .. and can stand up...

it is not easy unearthing a sail, mast and boom buried in mud!

                                                   chocolate tops were all the vogue

and so the day went on...

PCSC featured well in the results with David Mann taking home the Trophy as Qld title holder 
 Maria winning the Ladies prize and Tim Williams took out the most improved for the year !
