Sail-World.com : Cumbley beats frostbite to win Solo Winters

Cumbley beats frostbite to win Solo Winters

'Solo Winters 2008'    Fotoboat.com ©
Despite severe weather warnings around the country, 59 helms came from as far a field as Largo Bay SC in Scotland and Teign Corinthian in Devon to compete in the Solo Winters.

The final race positions, and the Championship were decided upon the outcome of a protest, however Charlie Cumbley took first place, Ewan Birkin-Walls second and Andy Davies third.

The bitterly cold day was offset, by some exciting completive sailing in force 3-4 winds. Slick race management kept everybody on their toes, and by running all three races back to back everybody was kept relatively warm.

In Race 1 Will Loy was first to the windward mark, a position he was to hold until the next beat, when he was overtaken by the Current National Champion, Andy Davies, who held on to take the race, with Will second, and Kevan Gibb in third Place.

Race 2 was taken convincingly by Charlie Cumbley, With Kevan Gib in second place and Ewan Birkin-Walls from Grafham in third. At this point the Championship was wide open with three helms all on 5 points tying for first place.

The final race positions, and the Championship were decided upon the outcome of a protest, however Charlie Cumbley took first place, Ewan Birkin-Walls second and Andy Davies third.
