The championships was the largest one-design event held at the club since the 1980s

Toronto Amateur Sailing Club has played host to a field of 107 competitors in the 42nd Windsurfer Class Australian Championships.

The championship featured four days of competition, and was the largest one-design event held at the club since the 1980s.

Several Lake Macquarie sailors put their local knowledge to good use to achieve strong results.

Former four-time Olympian Lanee Beashell, of Balcolyn, was first in the women’s overall section, first in the  women’s course racing, freestyle, slalom and marathon, and second in the marathon overall.

Michael Lancey, of Marks Point, was fourth overall in the medium weight division, second in course racing, first in slalom, and third in the marathon.

Mark Long, also from Marks Point, was second in course racing in the super heavyweight division.

The club estimates the event injected more than $100,000 into the local economy.

The club has some regular windsurfers and is hoping to build its fleet racing on a Sunday on Toronto Bay.
