Sail-World.com : Comet Open at Attenborough SC
Comet Open at Attenborough SC

Comet Open 2012 took place on Saturday 23rd June at Attenborough Sailing Club with eight visitors joining ten from the home club. All of the boats took to the water for the first race in gusty conditions. The start was postponed for five minutes whilst the safety crews helped a number of boats recover from capsizes.

The fleet got away cleanly and soon four boats opened up a good lead. There were several changes in leadership around the course in winds gusting force 4 to 7. The eventual winner was Chris Robinson from Burghfield SC followed by Eddie Pope from Ogston SC and in third place was Richard Whitehouse from Combs SC. Just six boats completed the full course.

Only nine boats started the second race. As in the first race a lead developed with the first four boats. This time however the positions didn't change throughout the five lap race. Peter Mountfield from Staunton Harold SC was first across the line followed by Chris Richardson and Eddie Pope.

The wind had abated to some extent leading up to the start of the thirds and last race. In consequence fourteen entrants took to the water. Almost immediately after the race started a squall cross the lake the fight for survival was back on. At the end of the first lap Peter Mountfield lead from Chris Robinson and Eddie Pope. Richard Whitehouse went through the gate in seventh at the end of lap one but Peter Mountfield having made an error at a gybe mark and Richard gradually came through the leaders. The conditions once again claimed a number of boats with nine completing the course lead by Chris Robinson and followed by Richard Whitehouse and Peter Mountford.
