Volvo Noble Marine RS800 UK Nationals - Roger and Will lead on day two

by Debbie Darling on 10 Aug 2013
Volvo Noble Marine RS800 UK Nationals RS Nationals
Day two dawned overcast, drizzly and looked pretty light. Local knowledge proved correct, with Andy 'Stand By for a Foam Up' Jefferies correctly picking up the extra sea breeze once the sun came out.

Race one started in a steady 13-15 knots with the right paying heavily due to the lesser tide, flatter water and bend heading in on Port. Many of the fleet had picked this leading to a few failed Garda-esque port tack approaches. Overnight leaders Nick Charles / Christian Humphrey and Roger Phillips / Will Crocker got the match racing started early. At the first windward mark it was Roger and Will leading from Laurie Fitzjohn Sykes / Dan Allin with Tom Halhead and Stu Jagger in third. Laurie took the lead on the second beat with Roger and Will electing to avoid the right hand corner and dropping down to second. These positions were held to the finish with Dave Hivey and Rob Partridge picking the best line through the traffic at the final windward to come through and take third.

The breeze had built significantly for the second race, starting in about 17-18 knots. Tim Saxton / Jonny Clegg and Dave / Rob went for the right hand end of the line, tacked and headed for the beach immediately. Tim / Jonny’s pace saw them rounding the first mark with a ten metre lead over Dave / Rob, with Roger and Will rounding in third. The breeze continued to build to over 20 knots during the race with the final downwind getting pretty spicy, and a graveyard of 7’s / 8’s near the gybe point and bottom of the course. Tim and Jonny took a big win, with Dave / Rob in second and James Date / Toby Wincer coming through to take third. With the breeze continuing to increase and tide turning to increase the chop, the third race was sensibly canned, leaving everyone to head back for an early bath and time to hit the charity shops ahead of the 'tight and bright' pub crawl planned for later on.
