Beurteaux, Stubbs, and Wilder win WA State Champs - Viper 640 International Class Association

Twelve Vipers competed in perfect conditions on the weekend of 2 and 3rd December 2023 at South of Perth Yacht Club.  A total of 8 races were completed in winds ranging from 5 to 15 knots.  The wind was variable in both direction and strength making for big gains and losses on the course.  Despite the wind variations the racing was extremely tight with all 12 boats finishing within 2 minutes of each other in most races.

After racing was completed on Saturday, a BBQ provided welcome sustenance for 65 people.  Champagne, wine, and beer complimented the fish tacos, grilled kebabs, sumptuous salads, and dessert platter.  Great to see some younger sailors entering the fleet making it a multi-generational sporting event.

Congratulations to Rod Beurteaux, Jon Stubbs and Simon Wilder sailing “You Get in the Bowl” who won in a close battle from Murray Howson, Craig Hansen and Jordan Mears on “Atheris.”  Full results below.
