Sherriff shoots to win in radio sailing club's Peel Districts Cup

Champion's Lakes member Ian Sherriff sailed his way to victory in the Austin Lakes Radio Sailing Club's Peel Districts Cup event last week.

A field of 13 entrants using mostly A+ rigs took to the waters in South Yunderup to contest the Cup, with temperatures in the mid-30s, six to 12 knot winds and even a small batch of rain making for some whacky conditions.

Clubs including Sherriff's own Champion's Lakes, Perth, Wanderers, Emu Lakes and of course, the home team, were represented in the racing.

A regular racer at Austin Lakes, Sherriff claimed the victory ahead of Nic Jerwood and Ron Viney who finished in second and third respectively.

Emu Lakes racer Wayne Coleman took out fourth.

Several newer members also performed admirably, including Steve Lee, Ian Turton and Marie Mansfield.
