Entries Still Open for Central Queensland IOM Championship


May 21, 2019

At the time of posting this story 29 entrants were registered for this event from across the country.  The current National Champion Sean Wallis from Perth WA has grabbed the opportunity to sail at this great venue and continue to hone his skills in preparation for the World championships in Brazil later this year.  That and the suspicion that he just enjoys beating Queenslanders at home!

But the field is a strong one comprised of a rapidly growing group of competitive Queensland sailors determined to take this event for themselves.  In strong contention for their local knowledge and recent form would be Aaron Farrar and Grant Cooper who both finished strongly at the National Championships last February.  In the visiting Queenslanders, Greg Torpy has won at this location and has to be considered a chance.

This is also Round 2 of the QRYA Grand Prix Series.  Round 1 was raced at Kawana earlier this year with the series culminating in October at the 2019 IOM State Championships.  Competitors are scored on a best of three results in the four race series so if you missed the first one you can still compete in the last three.

Gladstone is always a popular location to sail from and the harbour location provides ideal radio water.  So if you have been thinking about attending and not registered, click here and enter now.
