Hi Paul the Nationals idea was Kevins from QLD , as we aren’t a class association i think it would be best to find an event and as you put it tack onto it and call it our WETA NATIONALS event re insurance etc.
As for location i guess that will be somewhat dependant on who’s holding an event ? maybe the AUS day long w/end ? or late dec 2015 early jan 2016 . i think we need to get the guys thinking about this . Even a NSW TITLES EVENT AS WELL,
Hi Alistair yes ive thought of a travellers trophy maybe 3-5 events in the season
1) JB Regatta – Dealers event great locale and help support country sailing club
2) ACT titles – for the Canberra fleet support
3) Peter loft Marathon – as this can be the distance event ?
4) a gosford event – help build the profile and help our 2 boats up there
5) a sydney event – either pittwater , Palm beach , woollhara , or other sydney Locale ?
These are only suggestions and up for comment you guys can certainly add events and take charge of the fleets destiny
Sounds like a plan to me Pete if we get a schedule going guys can plan on the vents they can attend .
I f you go too Weta.com.au in the gallery theres about 18 pics from JB Rehgatta you guys might too look at , we are always aftre your vids and your pics it all helps me to promote the class and get new members/ owners
Hi tony that sux that some low life steals your rigging the kite also has a weta logo on it so if they try to use it , it will be easily identified .
Let me know what you need i will work out the cost + freight ( air freight ) for the insurance company and send them a quote if you like
Hi guys thanks for the write up on here from what ive heard it was a great w/end im sorry i missed it .
I have some prizes i will be posting out to our winners From Weta and Ronstan
as in the pics attached the big red bag , shirt cap etc is for Alistair 1st place
the 2 nd pic black bag , gloves , t shirt cap for peter Graham
and the 3 rd one is for Rohan bag cap and a shirt
Next year i will make sure we have a sponsor and trophies / prizes for State titles
Again thanks one and all for your attending the ACT Titles i know its a long haul for most of you , but what an effort biggest division 1st year in the event , i hope we can near dbl the number next year
Thanks for that Leigh , yes by the sounds of it Alistair and his younger brother Will ? where setting the pace , Sat did look fresh to frightening from what i saw . Thanks again to Geoff RC for the fossil gifts he donated to the Regatta ,
I think Will needs to ditch the Hobie 16 and get a Weta like his Dad and Brother after his effort on the w/end .
I certainly Hope all the Guys had a good time and strengthened the Weta Family relationship , i wish i had been able to stay longer and participate ( at least on Sunday ) it would have been good to be in a 11 strong fleet of Weta’s .
Thank you to the Guys from the ACT who made the trip and Also a big Hello to Peter Graham our latest owner ,also Andy who was in his 1st Weta event.
The ACT Titles are shaping up to be a great event especially if we have 10 + Boats competing I wonder if Will can borrow DADS boat and give the ol guys a bit of a touch up ? if Not ill lend him mine so they can compete against each other .
I heard that 4-5 guys are looking to sail/race on the pittwater on a regular basis or at the Palm beach Cat Club this is great news the more exposure we get the better for the class and the more FUN you guys have Racing each other !
It was good to see Dylon and Peter both having their sons crew for them at the w/end i intend to do the same what a great way to spend time with your boys and teach them something as well they are the future of sailing in Australia.
I will endeavour to make it to Canberra if only to support and watch the racing i will consult with my DR and see what he says about the car ride over the Mtn i mean the spiritual leader should be there right LOL
I down loaded this it looks like a really fun app to have , be great with a stack of boats running it at a regatta . i will get howled down for this but i’d love to start the SPEED PUCK CHALLENGE world wide for the fastest speed recorded in a WETA ? Who wants to hold the record as the fastest in the world ????::

i wonder if you could do this in Blue and get the same effect::
