Club Regatta 2021 – Results

A total of 22 boats took part in this year’s Club Regatta, held on Saturday 28th August. The day promised us a F3 northerly with the chance of a shower later, but overall a pleasant sailing day. A series of rookie races for the less experienced juniors also took place.

Race officer Jon Jowett laid a good-sized course for the first championship race, using as much of the lake as possible given the wind direction. Vanda Jowett (Solo) was first over the finish line, followed by Martin Vinson (RS200), very ably crewed by wife Heidi, who had come along for a one-off fun regatta sail, yet looking as though she’d not missed a day sailing for ever! On corrected time Vanda held onto first, Nick Price (Comet) came second, and Tobias Lundkvist (Optimist) came third.

Race two was moved by popular demand to avoid the weedier end of the lake, though this made for a smaller course with what turned out to be some tight gybes, making for some challenging sailing when the wind suddenly picked up to a good F4+. Steve Jones finished first after handicap correction, with Martin and Heidi in second and Ray Bowdler (Laser) in third. Vanda retired after a terminal capsize, potentially opening up the field going into the last race.

Race three saw a reduced fleet, including Martin and Heidi who were relaxing ashore with tea and cake. Steve Jones was also absent. This left Vanda to potentially ‘seal the deal’ for the day. Mike Bean (Laser), having finished organising the junior group, competed in this race, giving Vanda a good run for her money, but finishing second.

Final Results

1st        Vanda Jowett (Solo)
2nd        Ray Bowdler (Laser)
3rd        Nick Price (Comet)
6th        Mika Colombi (Optimist) – 1st Junior

Pioneer Cup 2021 – Sat 25 September

The Pioneer Cup event will take place on Saturday 25th September. Racing starts at 10:30 with the best 2 results of 3 races counting towards the chance to win the trophy.

As always, sailors of all levels of experience are very welcome to join the racing.

This is a personal handicap racing event, meaning that each sailor has an additional handicap factor added to the boat’s standard handicap, which means everyone has a good chance of winning!  If you are new to racing, this is the perfect event to give it a go.

Or, alternatively, just come along to cruise and watch the racing.
