The Tasmanian B14 State Championships got underway at Kingston Beach Sailing Club today following the build up to the regatta over the last two weeks. The following two and a half hours of floating around and a large amount of frustration from PRO Peter Gore and top mark mover and shaker Chris Keil, the fleet finally got off to a start in a strengthening 15 knot Northerly, peaking at 23 Knots.

Robbie looking better

The news is positive today for Robbie’s road to recovery following a bout of bad sausage. Robbie is back on solids and managed to get down a reasonable meal this evening with the rest of the fleet. With colour back in his face and a lemonade in hand, Robbie is doubtful of a return to the race track tomorrow, but was excited to see his boat doing well in his absence anyway. More news on the Hunt watch tomorrow.
