The 2008 KA Sails Dash-For-Cash was run from Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club yesterday with the top slalom sailors from Queensland all fighting for the $500 first place cashfund. The event was organised by Peter from Caloundra Wind & Surf and with the 20 knot onshore winds at the Lake, a marathon slalom course (complete with a small upwind component) was set with buoys at each end of the lake. Sean won the race in a time of 19.30 mins; over 45 seconds ahead of his nearest rival. Sean used his 8.2m Vapor sail with a borrowed iSonic 111 and 42cm Deboichet SL2 fin to win the race.

    Well done Sean, what did Simon charge as comission for using his board??

  • Sean OBrien says:

    Haha, not nearly enough.

    It was lucky Simon was there. I had an 85l slalom board and a formula board; with the wind around 15 knots when we first went out. Little too windy for the FW board to be fast but definitely too light for the 85l to light up :-/

    It was a fun race though. I think Peter is hoping to put it on again next year. Maybe with the prize money split between a few more places (1-3rd) it might encourage a few more people to race… Cheers.
