F18 Australian Nats 2019: Day 1







All images by Canvas Sails, check their complete Day 1 galleries at Canvas Sails fb. - Brett Burvil & Max Putman continue their performance drive that can be backtracked to the 2018 Europeans. A 100% Australian Team with local made boat (Windrush Edge) and sails (Nxt Gen).
They are leading the 2019 F18 Australian nats after 4 races held yesterday.

Five pts behind and in second place overall, James Mc Donald & Adam Coe (C2 / Goodall DS). Third and closely behind (1pt) Gavin Colby & Jayden Dalton (Scorpion / Brewin DS?)
4th overall for Dutch helm Hans van Dam sailing with Jamie Christensen on board an Edge. Hans had an awesome 2018 season with his father Marius, and travelled to Australia to race this Nats.

Excellent 39 boat fleet with a majority of DS sails. No details of any aero tramp yet, the IF18CA has approved last week the use of full double tramp & fairings, an unnecessary rule change and a non performance key feature for the F18, as the aero snuffer which was gladly not approved. For details on the matter check IF18CA web.
