WA Sharpies set course for a big weekend with the WA State Titles!
31 January - 1 February 2015 at Mandurah Offshore Fishing & Sailing Club
The weather looks light and variable again so everyone is in with a chance. Vern and his team of moth magicians must be considered favourites to take out an unprecedented three peat. Dave Meehan on Vita Brevis and Mandurah local Ash Gayboy Gabrielson skippering Bullit are strong contenders with plenty of local knowledge in the kit. Two weeks of Tasar sailing should have both of the in peak performance. Could the fickle conditions play into the Busso boy’s hands as they are constantly sailing in this shifty of shore pattern? The dark horse is heavy weather specialist no turned light weather Guru Graham Keys who appears to have SBD Drilling tuned perfectly in the light stuff. He and the boys put on a clinic last Sunday at MBSC with a massive win in the light and variable easterly.
One thing is certain the beer will taste great as the sun sets on Saturday evening and there will be a winner Sunday afternoon.
Cheers, Craig Mann, President WASSA
