2012 Northshore Freshwater Laser championships

Issue date


There were good South West winds breezes for the North Shore Freshwaters hosted by Pupuke Boating Club at Takapua last weekend (May 19/2), but cold at times and the rain squalls did not deter 28 Full rig lasers, and 9 Laser Radials from taking part.
After seven races, Blair McLay of Weiti Boating Club dominated the Standard fleet, leaving the interesting battle for second with Mike Keeton (2012 Radial Grand Master World Champ- Wakatere Boating Club Member) pipping Scott Leith (2012 Radial Apprentice Master World Champ- Pupuke Boating Club Member).

The Laser Radial fleet was a little depleted this year with only nine registrants. Pete Thomas (3rd Radial Master at the 2012 World Champs) won a close battle with youngster Jacob Miller up from Cambridge followed by Jeff Coffin from Panmure.
