420 2012 CurraDinghy Nationals Final Day.

The morning after the Black Tie Dinner dawned and we were greeted with drizzle and 12-13 knots of breeze but with more forecast later. The older departing youth squad sailors were feeling a bit the worse for wear and tried to give themselves more recovery time by hiding the tally board but their attempts failed and the fleet launched for a nearly on time start!

The wind didn’t play ball to at the start. It shifted and dropped away to nothing so the first race of the day was abandoned. On the restart the wind picked up to 10-12 knots.

The wind continued to build throughout the race and having blown away the cobwebs Craig Dibb and Charlie Cox, who had also celebrated his 18th birthday the night before, crossed the line first, closely followed by Annabel Vose and Ed Riley with Callum 'The Torch' Airlie and Joe Butterworth in third. Neil 'The Old Man' Marsden and Kirsty Urwin finished fifth, did their maths and sailed ashore for a well earned rest.

Day 4.

After a one hour postponement the fleet gathered on the slipway with palpable excitement in a growing breeze.

Racing got underway at 12.30pm and in the tricky conditions the first race saw victory for Neil and Kirsty, with Scott Wallis and Josh Voller in second and James Taylor and Tom Lovesey in third.

The second race of the day got underway after a general recall and the race was won again by Neil and Kirsty who were now counting their sixth bullet of the week. Annabel and Ed chased Neil to the line with Tom Pain and Matt Wallis in third.

In the third race of the day Craig Dibb and brithday boy Charlie Cox crossed the line first beating Neil and Kirsty into second and Annabel and Ed were third.

The final day of racing will determine who becomes National champion so let's hope the forecast high winds do not mean the sailors can't hit the water.

Results are final as of 15:30 on August 24, 2012
