RYA Volvo Zone and Home Country Championships overall

'2012 RYA Volvo Zone and Home Country Championships'    Paul Wyeth / RYA

The RYA Volvo Zone and Home Country Championships concluded on Sunday, 30th September with competition amongst Great Britain’s sailing stars of the future. With all of the venues enjoying a full schedule of racing on Saturday, 29th September, sailors faced testing conditions on day two with some venues having to postpone races due to too much breeze.

The weekend has seen more than 1,200 of Britain’s rising young stars of the future compete across nine venues throughout the UK which has proved to be one of the biggest and most popular events on the RYA Racing calendar.

The RYA High Performance Managers have seen some fantastic dinghy and windsurf racing from the nation’s young guns who have been competing for selection into the RYA Volvo Zone and Home Country squads as well as Championship honours.

The event has attracted a variety of sailors and supporters from sailing clubs across Great Britain and has given the young competitors the chance to experience big regatta racing without having to travel far from their home sailing clubs. For some, the sailors will have improved their racing skills and overall ability after venturing out onto the competitive circuit for the first time.

All nine Zone and Home Country Championship events are sponsored by Volvo Car UK, and yesterday (Saturday 29 September) most events welcomed an array of world class performers as Skandia Team GBR and Team Volvo sailors made appearances up and down the country.

Sailors from the South Zone and North Zone were the lucky ones however as they were treated for the second day running as Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas visited WPNSA and Olympic silver medallist Nick Dempsey dropped in on the action at Rutland. London 2012 Paralympic bronze medallist Alexandra Rickham went to the East Zone while Stuart Bithell visited the West Zone.

Duncan Truswell, RYA Youth Racing Manager, said: 'It was great to see yet more Olympic and Paralympic athletes attending venues today, thanks to the support of Volvo Car UK. I know the Team Volvo sailors had a great time and were really impressed by the standard of sailing and also the attitude and commitment of the young sailors.

'It was a testing day with most venues recording pretty big gusts, this compromised the number of races we were able to complete but for most there was more than enough in the fresh conditions. Our thanks must go to the parents and volunteers from local clubs helping out on safety boats, without them it could not happen and most seemed to have a pretty busy day! Congratulations to all the competitors and the prize winners, they really were worthy winners.'

RYA Volvo South Zone Championship (Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, Dorset)

The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy took a battering from the wind today confining the South Zone dinghy sailors to the shores with gusts of up to 30 knots in Portland Harbour, while the windsurfers managed to brave the conditions and complete one race.

The topper fleet attempted one race which was quickly abandoned, while the other remaining dinghy fleets were left hopelessly waiting for the breeze to die.

To occupy the sailors, London 2012 Paralympic gold medallist Helena Lucas attended the Olympic sailing venue where she gave tips and advice in the dinghy park before conducting a Q&A session from the sailors and parents. Lucas then presented the young competitors with their hard fought trophies which only added the joy of young competitors.

RYA Volvo South West Zone Championship (Chew Valley Sailing Club, Bristol)

Chew Valley Sailing Club threw up another great day of sailing conditions as the sailors revelled in 12-15 knots with the occasional gust of 20 knots making for challenging and shifty conditions.

There were a fair few sailors who spent more time in the water than they did in their boats, keeping the safety team and rescue boats busy throughout the day.

Three races were completed across all fleets with notable performances at the top of both the Topper and Feva fleets. The Regatta fleet had another great day out on the water where they completed some short races as well as receiving coaching from RYA coaches.

James Tilley, RYA South West Zone Event Director, commented: 'We have seen some fantastic racing this weekend at Chew Valley Sailing Club with a full series being completed.

Regatta Fleet RYA Volvo South East Zone Championship (Weir Wood Sailing Club, East Sussex)

Sailors form the RYA Volvo South East Zone concluded their regatta today with some great racing at Weir Wood Sailing Club. The forecast predicted 10-12 knots with gusts of up to 18-20 knots, however in the first race of the day the sailors battled in a light, fickle breeze of no more than four knots.

The predicted breeze eventually filled in soon after lunchtime and the keen competitors, who were enthralled by Team Volvo sailor Annie Lush’s Olympic presentation yesterday, competed in gusts of 15-20 knots resulting in some intense racing in the final stages of the regatta. Sailors were given a good test of their racing ability rounding off a fantastic 2012 RYA Volvo South East Zone Championships, giving the RYA squad selectors plenty of racing to appraise.

The South East Zone battled it out in 10-15 knots of breeze, with the Topper fleet being the tightest of them all with each race being won by a different sailor. The sailors were able to showcase their talent in front of Rickham as she ventured out onto the water to witness the racing first hand. Once ashore, sailor quizzed Rickham about her sailing career where she gave the young sailors a detailed race strategy presentation, focusing on starting techniques.

Paul Wren, RYA High Performance Manager, said: 'We have had a fantastic weekend of racing at Alton Water Sailing Club. Having Alexandra here today was so inspiring for the young sailors and for that I thank Volvo Car UK. The sailors had a great Q&A with Alexandra and we were extremely pleased to welcome here to the East Zone event.'

RYA Volvo West Zone Championships (Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club, Greater Manchester)

Today all competitors arrived at Leigh and Lowton, ready for another testing day with a forecast of 16 knots with gusts of up to 30 knots, however the breeze never quite materialised as forecast, with 10 knots, average, dropping periodically throughout the day. It stayed dry until the end of the final race of the day, making for a wet and soggy pack up but otherwise a good dry day with some close racing from all the competitors.

Racing got underway in the morning, with just a slight delay as the race teams waited for the breeze to stabilise, two races before lunch, and one race after lunch, completing the series of six races for the main fleet, and the regatta fleet completing seven races over the weekend.

London 2012 Olympic 470 silver medallist Stuart Bithell arrived at lunch time and gave an interview to Lucy Mearns who sails in the topper class, the young competitor then went out and won the last race of the day after lunch, taking on board the top tips she received from Bithell.

After racing Bithell gave a presentation to all the competitors about his journey from Junior to Olympic sailing, and talked about his recent exploits at the London 2012 Olympic Games where he won a silver medal in the 470 class.

Thomas Wallwork (Redesmere SC) had a consistent day in the toppers securing top three race results in every race today securing the overall championship title, however it was Lucy Mearns (Leigh and Lowton SC) which capitalised on the days conditions with a 1,2,1 to secure first girl and third overall. Second overall was Nick Devereux from Budworth SC.

Drew Wright had a perfect day in the Optimist fleet, with three bullets from today’s three races securing overall victory, followed by Archie Leckie in second, and Chloe Felton in third and first girl overall.

The London 2012 Olympic silver medallist had a fantastic time observing proceedings, offering some specially tailored World Champion windsurf advice to the young windsurfers at the event. He also dished out on water tips to the dinghy class sailors before sharing his Olympic experience after racing at the specially organised Q&A session.

Kirsty Bonar, RYA Single Handed Pathway Manager, added: 'It’s been an incredibly impressive weekend watching the record number of 319 sailors race in the fantastic conditions, yet challenging conditions, which they’ve had over the two days.

'The standard has been very high on the whole and there have been some great battles at the top of the leader board! There are also many sailors here racing their first event and it’s been great to see them working with the coaches and gaining experience on the regatta course. Having Team Volvo sailors Helena Lucas and Nick Dempsey here over the weekend has been very inspiring for the kids – getting to chat with the Olympians, see the Olympic medals and also gain some top tips, including what Nick eats for breakfast at a weekend!'
