Reservoir Dogs to represent Wales at Team 15 Champions Cup Final

by RYA on 16 Sep 2012
. .
Reservoir Dogs claimed the final event at Llandegfedd Reservoir, making best use of home advantage put them into a tie-break with Mumbles Mutineers, with that final leg victory putting the Gwent Adventures team through to the Team15 National finals in Pitsford, Northampton.

It was an exciting climax to a season of racing which has seen record numbers taking part in the T15 windsurfing in Wales, with three clubs battling it out for the title and all participants enjoying their fun time on the water learning a new skill.

It was a family affair for both the Mutineers and the Dogs with twins Will and Ieuan Lambert competing in the 3.5m and 4.5m classes of windsurfing for the Mutineers and brothers Jake and Dylan Chase in action for the Reservoir Dogs with Dylan winning on a Techno 6.8 and younger brother Jake second in the 3.5m class.

Ieuan Lambert clinched the 3.5m class winning every race, while Will was victorious in the 4.5m class with four race victories and two second place finishes. Newcomers Jake Smallwood and Dale Jones were also worthy of special mention in the 3.5m class. Rory Jackson of the Mutineers claimed the 5.8 class.

'It was a fantastic day's racing, it was good to see a record number of competitors and also great to see three teams battling it out for the Welsh title this year,' said T15 co-ordinator Stuart Meese.

'The team tactics of the Mumbles Mutineers placed them in good stead to win the series trophy with Swansea Watersports out of contention. They had top place in every event, missing out only because they did not have a full team to bring them level with the Reservoir Dogs.

'The Dogs won the tie-break by virtue of winning the last event, but you could not ask for a closer series with the Dogs holding onto their top place for another year.' Team15 RYA website
