Diggers Cup & Plate 2024

The original format of skippers swapping boats for every race returned to Jackadder but using DF95s instead of the original IOM boats. All participants seemed to enjoy the convivial atmosphere and the challenge of racing a differently tuned boat, proving once more that skipper's skill is more important than boat tuning. This fact is even more pronounced given all boats are identical, unlike the IOMs where different hull designs could be construed as providing the difference in boat performance.

Inaugural Brent Field Memorial event deemed a huge success

With an outstanding turnout on the day of 15 IOMs and 13 DF95s the day was a huge testament to how well thought of Brent was in this and other clubs, a valuable member who is sorely missed. Brent was innovative, always willing to assist or offer advise to those willing to learn and although he was the Club Champion in 2022, he was more interested in having fun and socialising than the competitive side of sailing.

Perth Classic 2023 - A Story of Weather Gods v Sailors

Dual fleets of IOMs and DF95s battled the weather gods to fit in a day of tricky racing for the 14th running of the Perth Classic. Presuming the adverse weather predictions for the day kept most visitors away but those that attended enjoyed the convivial atmosphere whilst providing great spectator entertainment.

Operating license not renewed for Lake Douglas, South Perth

Lake Douglas on the South Perth foreshore has been used by PRSC for many years, both as an alternate venue to our home site of Jackadder Lake in the City of Stirling, and as a fallback for when Jackadder becomes unusable due to low water or excess weed.

Superspreader AGM!

The 2023 PRSC AGM was held at the Warren Lake Hall, Woodlands on the evening of May 9th. Attended by over 20 members, enticed there by the offer of free pizza, were inadvertently exposed to what turned out to be a superspreader event for Covid 19! It appears the Commodore, taking a leading position, went down with symptoms the day after and followed rapidly by a number of other members.

Big fleet for 2nd July 2022 IOM Club Championship Ht 5

It was great to see a fleet of 22 boats on the water (17 x IOMs and 5 x DF95s) for a relatively calm and typically fickle-winded day at Jackadder. We were pleased to be joined by a few of the Maylands sailors, primarily because the forecast NE winds are not good for their location. As it turned out, the afternoon at Jackadder produced as much frustration, with only a few races of light wind, the remainder of the eight being drifters.

Diggers Cup 2022

After a 2 year Covid-19 enforced hiatus, a newly filled Jackadder Lake saw us holding the Anzac Day Diggers Cup once more. With an apparent growing reluctance to follow tradition with swapping boats between skippers, the event was held as a regular regatta and we will work on devising a way to bring back novelty to the event for the future.

This year, Perth Radio Sailing Club relocated the annual Bink Frayne Memorial A Class regatta to Austin Lakes in South Yunderup.
