Results  _2013 National Titles Lake Gillies SA 

Recent rains saw the surface of the Lake in beautiful condition but lite rain on Saturday had racing deffered until Sunday . The surface was still good with some patches of water kept the pilots on there toes . The wind was generally light consistantly around 10-12 kph with 15-18 at tomes .

Class Five was totaly dominated  by Andrew Broadbent and his NZ725 . he was a class above the rest lapping some class 5'sin just 3 laps!When you look at this yacht sail there is no doubt that the AUSclass 5's are a generation behind Andrew was far ahead and consistantly geting 75 kph in 10-12 knots of wind an amazing seven times wind speed and was doing so smoothly and easily . After racing Andrew generously let a number of pilots have a sailin his machine . Everyone was impressed and the tape measure was out !

 Give it 6 months and i think we will see a new generation of aussie 5's

 The minis were dominated by Wayne Forbes in his new 5.6 with an interesting rocker arm steering arangement . he to was lapping othe competitors in three laps .

 Top speed of the weekend went to Andrew recording 82kph . Pretty impressive considering the light winds.
