This year our Laser State Championships were hosted by the Humpybong Yacht Club (HYC) located on the picturesque shore at Woody Point on the southern end of the Redcliffe peninsular.
Conditions leading up to the weekend were wild with 20 knot plus southeast winds and 30 knot rain squalls regularly blowing across the course. On Friday evening the race committee decided toabandon Saturday’s racing as the weather models were consistent with their forecasts for similar 22- 30knot conditions. This left three races on Sunday to make a series if the conditions eased. Sunday did bring kinder weather although rain squalls did continue to blow through the course at around 25knots. In between the rain squalls the wind varied from 15knots to 5knots.
