Race Report Day 1

Glorious sunshine and a perfect 10 knot breeze welcomed the 51 competitors for the 2007 Gul RS700 National Championship at Royal Torbay Yacht Club.

Mark Nicholson led the fleet up the first beat first going hard left and then sailing to the port layline with Andy White playing the shifts up the middle in second. Mark gybed off at the top mark whilst Andy followed by Pete Purkiss, Paul Bayliss and Steve Butcher sailed on to what was the favoured side of the run and made some big gains. Andy White then proceeded to build a comprehensive lead and was never challenged with Paul Bayliss taking Steve Butcher for second and Pete Purkiss 4th.

Steve Butcher spotted a shift in the line and took advantage of a gap at the pin end to port tack the fleet and led out to the favoured right hand side of the course. He continued to lead at the windward mark followed by Tim Johnson, Andy White and Paul Bayliss. Steve played the right hand side of the run and held the lead but it was Dave Smithwhite who made the biggest gains by going left down the run. Steve led Dave by 4-5 boat lengths at the final windward mark and although Dave managed to sneak through at one stage in the dying breeze, it was Steve who pulled through to take gun.

The fleet gathered in the evening for a rules seminar by our RYA judge Peter Fitt and the class meeting before presenting the Seasure golden rudder stocks to the overnight leaders, Steve Butcher in the gold and Ed Reeves in the silver fleet. Everyone then enjoyed a hearty supper provided by Harken before seeking alternative amusement on the English Riviera.

Race Report Day 2

A quite depressing scene greeted the fleet with a flat calm in Torbay. Paul Bayliss gave an excellent talk on championship preparation. Fortunately by then a light breeze had filled in and the race officer sent the fleet out to play. Paul Bayliss won the pin end and led the charge to the cliffs where there was more pressure followed by Tim Johnson and Matt Humphries. On the second beat Matt managed to take Tim Johnson and a right hand shift and almost manage to take the lead. This was the order for the remainder of the race.

In race 4 it was again Steve Butcher showing some excellent form in the light conditions to lead at the windward mark from Dave Smithwhite and Andy Irons. Steve and Andy went for the gybe set allowing Dave to go for the straight hoist to sail into clearer air. Up the next beat Dave went right which allowed Andy to take the lead on a big shift only to lose it again as the wind shifted back. Andy closed again on the beat but couldn’t quite take the win. Carl Vining sailed through to take a well deserved third place.

The final race of the day was started in very light conditions. The right hand side of the course paid and it was Harvey Hillary who tacked first onto the layline. However Tim Johnson sailing in from the left took the lead whilst Paul Bayliss had deliberately overstood and sailing freer took second place at the windward mark. Tim immediately gybed off and was covered by the fleet which allowed Paul to take the lead and put Harvey in close contention for second.

The overnight holders of the Seasure golden stocks were Paul Bayliss in the gold fleet and Ollie page in the silver. The fleet then enjoyed a pasta supper followed by some very competitive go-carting all generously provided by Seasure.

Final Report to follow.
