Start of Season Regatta 2014

A flat sea, the sun out, a variable breeze and a good turnout of 17 boats for this years start of season regatta.   The shifting breeze resulted in a tight first race with Jamie Freeman taking the win in his borrowed RS300, just piping the Highfields RS500 and Nick Favell in his Phantom.

Race 2 went the way of the Asymmetric boats , Chris Sallis taking the win in his D1 from Dave Houghton/John Symonds RS500 and Richard Fryer/Carol Smalls RS400.

Race 3 started with all to play for with a number of boats still in with a chance of the trophy.  It was another tight race with several changes at the front.  Richard/Carol took the race win by only 8 seconds from Chris, with Richard Browne and Crew in their RS400 (sorry Richard I don’t know your crews name!) taking a comfortable 3rd.

After 3 tight races and 3 different race winners, Chris Sallis took the trophy by one point from Richard and Carol with Phil and Tamsin 3rd.
