posted 15 Aug 2016, 15:37 by RG NCA   [ updated 29 Aug 2016, 03:29 ]

Twenty-two skippers entered this round six RG65 class, one day event at Two Islands, Milton Keynes. The weather was warm, dry and wind variable between 6-8 mph from the west / southwest. Race officer Peter Shepherd and his helpers from the local club did an excellent job setting the course keeping things in order in an efficient but always good humoured manner. A total of 17 races where completed sailing all 22 boats in one fleet. 

 

It is to the credit of all skippers that no major issues occurred throughout the day, all skippers sailed competitively but with skill and respect for the rules of sailing and respect for the other skippers sailing.

 

Sailing was very close all day, Phil Holliday having the better morning but John Tushingham the better afternoon and finished in first place with Phil second and Noel Donaldson in third. The rest of the fleet where all very close behind.

 

Everyone had an enjoyable day in very pleasant surroundings, and although the range of skills and experience was quite broad and the variety of boat designs very varied the sailing was very close throughout the day.

Next event is Traveller Series Seven at Dachet Water near Heathrow Airport London on 3rd September, it should be another great day
