2021 Victorian State Championships Sorrento

The Victorian Open Masters and Youth Championships were sailed over the weekend of 27th and 28th February at Sorrento Sailing and Couta Boat Club at the southern end of Port Phillip.


The light and at times variable winds proved challenging for the strong fleet of 78 boats, sailed by skippers across the age range from 13 to 75 years plus.

The overall winner and Radial State Champion was Casey Imeneo from McCrae Yacht Club who had a close tussle across the weekend with runnerup Simon Merritt also from McCrae.

In the Standard fleet it was a close battle between two Masters sailors from Port Melbourne Yacht Club. In the end Apprentice Matt Blakey had a narrow one point win over the Grand Master sailor Steve Gunther.

There was also close sailing in the 4.7 Division. The overall winner was Hamish Cowell from Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron, with runnerup Angus McIntyre also from Blairgowrie.
