Replying to:28th National Championships
The SA Division welcomes all competitors to the 28th National at Adelaide Sailing Club in January 2005. It is hard to believe the 125 has been around so long. I can still remember sailing in the first Nationals at Black Rock Yacht Club in Vic. Proudly won by SA brothers Bryan and John Inns. I came in a pleasing 6th. The body is not as willing these days and I have to be content in making sure the leaders are still in eyesight to keep them honest. Planning is well advanced for the Regatta and a good time both on and off the water is assured. The Race Officer will be Roger Wilson a very experienced sailor in his own right and a YA qualified National Race Officer. The Notice of Race can be downloaded from the 125 Association web site or direct from www.adelaidesailingclub.com.au and click on the 125 picture near the bottom - follow your nose via the boxes on the lefthand side of the next page. The Sailing Instructions will be available via this website shortly. There is an online entry facility which puts your data straight into the results scoring program - prevents incorrect spelling on the trophies. Payment can be either to Adelaide SC or to the 125 Assoc. SA Division. Get your entry in as soon as practical so that we know who is coming. Accommodation has been extensively taken up in the caravan park just 800metres north of the ASC. If you are stuck let me know as we may be able to assist. If 125 sailors are concerned about the Flying 15's at the same time, I can assure them that there are 2 separate courses, both easily viewed from the comfort of the Adelaide SC balcony, an arms reach from the bar. There is a 6 lane boat ramp and crane facirity where the Flying 15's will be launching from and a sheltered beach for the 125's. Rigging lawns are extensive - we reqularly field a fleet of 100+ off the beach dinghies & cats each Saturday - also sailed on 2 separate courses. Don Barnett President 125 Association SA Division Inc.
