NSW STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS SATURDAY 19th AND SUNDAY the 20th of March 2016
The 2016 NSW Sate Soling 1M Championships were held on the weekend of the 19th and 20th of March 2016
Blustery conditions greeted the fleet of 15 entrants on the Saturday. However races started at 10:30am and as the morning progressed the conditions eased a little. After lunch the wind had swung to a true southerly and wind speeds had picked up to 12 to 14 knots.
A total of 10 races were completed
On the Sunday we were again greeted by blustery winds with speeds up to 14 knots at the start. By the end of the first race wind speeds had come up so only the one race was held. A wind measurement taken after all boats were out of the water (11:00am)  had an average wind speed of 18 knots. No wonder a lot of surfing was undertaken down wind in that first race. At 12 noon the average wind had dropped to 16 knots but by 12:15 it was back up to an average of 20 knots and building. Further racing was cancelled giving a total of 11 races with 9 to count.

The Basin Radio Yacht Club Inc 

The Basin Radio Yacht Club is a group of like minded yachting individuals who relish the sailing and competition of radio controlled yachts.

We mainly race from the Jetty at the end of Island Point Road, St Georges Basin, near Nowra on the South Coast of NSW. 

Basin Radio Yacht Club members look forward to sailing every Tuesday and Saturday and enjoy the social friendship that has developed within the group around the sailing of Soling one metre yachts

We only sail the Soling One Metre Class Yacht as it keeps the competition even. The Solings are purchased in kit form and have all been assembled by their owners

We have gained much experience in Sailing and building and are able to help with advice and where to purchase Soling kits and components. Interested? Talk to some of our club members. Ask for a brochure
