Beaumaris Yacht Club was the venue for the 2014 Victorian State Championship where 26 Pacers and 5 Pacer Pursuits enjoyed a warm but varied range of wind conditions from the Saturday to the Monday of the March long weekend.
Results from the 2013-14 National Championships are available in PDF format.

The 2013 Victorian Championship was an extraordinary event for many reasons. Parkdale Yacht Club proved to be family friendly, extremely well organised and a class act. The weather was hot, the wind fickle and somehow Parkdale managed to conduct all 6 scheduled races which were fair to all competitors without a single protest or gripe. Given the forecast many of us were concerned that we would not even get 4 races in to make a series.
