Fleming, Hein lead the way at states
A FIERCLY contested battle between two talented sailors was the highlight of the Victorian RC Laser Titles over Saturday and Sunday in Portland Bay.
After 21 completed races – 13 on the opening day and eight on Sunday, champion radio control racer Scott Fleming emerged victorious on 30 points.
Fleming has now won eight out of the past nine Victorian titles, and last year travelled to Queensland and contested the Champions of Nations series, emerging victorious against competitors from across the planet.
Fleming is also the current reigning Australian RC Champion.
Riding in at a close second was local Brad Hein, finishing the series on 41 points, with South Australian Jurgen Luther rounding out the podium in third on 90 points.
Portland’s Hein, one of the events key organisers, said the weekend was a thrilling success for the host club.
