RS End of Season Championships overall

'RS End of Season Championships 2012'    Alex Irwin
Datchet Water Sailing Club hosted the first ever RS End of Season Championships on November 10/11 with Crewsaver as event sponsors. This was the first time that the RS Feva class was involved in an event with all the other adult RS fleets. It proved an excellent showcase as the Feva youngsters were able to see the whole 'RS stable', with 153 boats from across the ‘RS family’ joining in. 51 Feva’s were joined on a trapezoid course by 35 RS 200’s ; whilst RS 100/300/400/500/600/700/800’s raced on a second trapezoid course.

Saturday began with the most detailed of briefings from PRO Barry Peters, who was soon to become the voice of the club. And what a club, Barry introduced us to the views of Windsor Castle, the 1.8 mile lake with 87ft of water depth and it’s ancestral history as a dodgy night club called Queens, where the bouncer was the inspiration for Vinnie Jones’ character in Lock Stock and 2 smoking Barrels. Not your usual briefing by a long chalk.

Course Race Officer, Dave Hazard had the RS100/300/500/600/700 on the first start on an outer loop. The racing was well organised with interesting beats and tactical runs. There was never a 'one way track' round the course, with the shifts providing plenty to think about on the Saturday. With a joint start for 100s, 300s, 500s, 600 and 700 there were added challenges. The 800’s were second start on an inner loop, but the very light breezes meant that the front 400's glided past many of the 8's.

Andy Bull was CRO for the RS200 and Feva course. Conditions were made extremely challenging as the committee boat was restricted to a 'fixed' mooring which resulted in lack of space whenever the wind swung right. The team managed to 'tweak' the course for the second race and the 200's were sent off whilst the Feva's were still plodding around the long course. The light conditions proved very difficult for the Feva back markers but the CRO took the opportunity to finish some at the top or bottom of the inner loop.

RS End of Season Championships 2012 -  Alex Irwin  
The 200's got three races in, but the Feva's only two on the Saturday, one of which was a marathon lasting over an hour.

The CRO’s did well to get the races done and dusted before the beautiful sun set. The conditions were described interestingly by one of the RS400 sailors 'idyllic conditions of beautiful crimson sunset behind the oldest castle in the world mixed in with a gentle breeze of 4-5 knots and the dulcet tones of the safety Rib and British Airways finest Ladies of the sky every 45 seconds.'

The Crewsaver RS End of Season Party was great fun, excellent value, good food and well supported with entertainment of steel drums and guitar before the main band.

On Sunday a thick frost and thin fog covered the area. The campers looked cold but the club provided a great breakfast. At 10 am ‘on the dot’, the starts got away in bright sunshine and a less shifty five knots, which built to eight knots at times.

All fleets observed a one minute silence as a sign of respect for Remembrance Day, with finishing hoots and whistles, plus starting sequences resuming at 11.05.

The Feva winner was decided on the final race with close racing over both days but it was Robbie and Alex King whose consistency paid off to give them a one point lead. Same again for the 200 fleet with Andy Shaw and Pippa Horne taking the title by one point. In the 8’s it was Roger Phillips and Will Crocker winning by two points whilst Nick Craig and Toby Lewis ‘cleaned up’ with six wins in the 400 fleet.

The multi fleet start saw Giles Peckham win the 100’s; Harry McVicar managed a ‘clean sweep’ to win the 300’s; Peter and James Curtis win the 500’s ( again with a string of firsts ); whilst Seb Hansell and Alex Young were the only 6’s and 7’s.

The sun shone all day long and with three races for all, the sailors returned to shore pretty happy with November racing.

Results are final as of 15:06 on November 11, 2012
