BUSA National Match Racing Championships - Solent win Qualifier 2

by Jess Beecher on 3 Feb 2011
.
BUSA National Match Racing Championships - Rob Gullan and his team from Southampton Solent University have won the BUSA Match Racing Qualifier 2 last weekend at Queen Mary Sailing Club.

Nine teams from across the country attended the event, which was the final opportunity to qualify for the BUCS/BUSA Championship Finals in April. Competition was close, with currently FISU World University Champion Andy Shaw ranked number 1 for the event. Shaw sailed a perfect round robin, winning all of his races, but was defeated by fellow FISU World GBR team member James Goss (Bristol) in the semi-finals (2-1).

The second semi-finals saw Tim Saxton (Exeter 1), second place from the round robin, sailed against Rob Gullan (Solent), third in the round robin. Saxton should have had the upper hand in the racing after beating Gullan in the round robin and from winning the first of three semi final races, but was unable to hold off the Solent team who won 2-1.

The final saw Gullan and Goss both winning a race each, leading to the final 'sudden death' race. Gullan was victorious and will lead the charge to win the Championship trophy and some vital BUCS Sport points.

Thanks go to Malcolm McKeag and Royal Thames Yacht Club for running the final BUSA qualifier for 2011

Moreover, notwithstanding the damage done to Land Rover BAR's boat, there must be considerable damage to the dagger-foil case of SBTJ. Considerable.
