Volvo Noble Marine RS200 National Championships days 4 and 5 + Video    
Fri, 23 Aug 2013

Wednesday and Thursday were less ‘champagne sailing’ at the RS200 Nationals, and more, ‘Erm, is this Lambrusco – or has the waiter popped an Alka Seltzer in a bottle of Blue Nun?’ sailing weather.

Day four was a proper chop screwy in a force 2-ish for races 5, 6 and 7. Andy Shaw and Pippa Horne, Matt and Emma (again), then Ian and Chloe Martin getting wins. Andy and Pippa also won on a less-lumpy day five, along with Dicken McLean and Hannah Young, Lee Sydenham and Emma Hivey. Results below. Congratulations go to Matt Mee and Emma Norriss for more wins and overall consistency. Also, plaudits must go to the race management, and overworked yet cheersome volunteer bar staff

To see how it shouldn’t be done see gate start link and, more amusing, windward mark uberscheiss links below. Poor hiking technique (should be straight leg), and an adventurous port approach to the starboard lay line. Like a kamikaze’s ‘adventurous’ approach to the deck of a battleship. Oh, and the mainsheet horse is out of whack.
