Laser Masters World Championship 2006
Jeju, Korea

An early start at the Jeju Laser World Masters Championships in Jeju, Korea rewarded both race committee and competitors with a sparkling last day's sailing in 16 to 18 knot winds and great surfing waves. The championship wrapped up with six races sailed and Brett BEYER (AUS) crowned as the new Laser Masters World Champion.

On arrival at the beach at 08:00 this morning the prospect for racing looked grim. However race committee wind spotter boats were sent afloat and within an hour a building easterly wind was seen 2.5 miles offshore. As the fleet were sent afloat none of them expected to get three races completed with an hour to spare before the close of racing time limit.

Apprentice (35 to 44 years) Brett BEYER (AUS) continued his impressive run of results with a first and a second place to take the overall Standard rig prize with a race to spare from Orlando GLEDHILL (GBR).

In the Radial rig fleet Steve COCKERILL (GBR), Mark PAGE (NZL) and Steve ADAMS (AUS) had close racing in the first two races. In both races COCKERILL had to fight his way through to take the winning gun and the overall prize before taking his foot of the accelerator to finish second to PAGE in the last race. Top lady master, Christine BRIDGE (AUS) gave then men a run for their money with a solid 5,4,4 score to finish fifth overall one place ahead of great grand master (over 65) Peter SEIDENBERG from (USA).

With a mixture of all ages in the top seven places the Laser Radial was easily the most interesting fleet to watch and sail in and was also the most popular.
