Mordialloc Sailing Club competed in the Victorian Optimist State Championship

On the Labor Day long weekend, three sailor’s from Mordialloc Sailing Club competed in the Victorian Optimist State Championship at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron. Eloise and James Lee competed in the intermediate fleet and Jack Bretherton in open fleet. For all of us it was the first time we raced at an event with strong tides, which was a new challenge. On Saturday the wind was very light and we managed to squeeze in one race late in the afternoon. On Sunday and Monday there was 15-18 knots of wind and we easily managed to get four races in on both days. With over 100 boats competing, 10 instaters and 1 sailor from japan the competition was fierce but it was a great weekend and was lots of fun.
