Congratulations to 3 of our local members who were successful at the recent Mosquito Catamaran National Championships held at Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club located just north of Noosa QLD.
Steve Thomas took out his maiden National Championship in the Cat Rigged Division while Peter Dunk and Kirsten Thomas took their fourth consecutive Sloop Rigged Division Championship.
These recent achievements add to a successful period for the Lake Bonney Mosquito sailors over the past 4 seasons with Mark Pfennig also winning the Cat Rigged Division previously along with several state championships between the 4 sailors. ... See MoreSee Less
