Wayling wins Phantom Tempera-Tech Eastern Series

Round 3 of the Tempera-Tech Phantom Eastern Series was won by John Wayling from Northampton SC, with Simon Childs in second place and James Case third. The final race would decide the event, with four different winners upto that point. Childs held out for the first half before Wayling sailed round him and off to win the race and the series.

Two races were run on Saturday for the 17 Phantoms in a gentle Force 1-2, after a tow out against the tide. Andy Gregory was first out of the blocks working the left hand shore leading from start to finish, Simon Childs and John Wayling closed up downwind but couldn’t find a way through. Wayling edged out Childs on the final beat for second, while our local host James Case took fourth.

Race 2 started further out in the channel, Marcus Ingram led the fleet round the first triangle, with a decent lead, from Childs and Rod Thorpe. Ingram managed to park nearing the leeward mark allowing Childs to slip past followed by Thorpe. The top 3 looked safe until the run to the finish against the tide in the dying wind. Childs and Thorpe scraped home before Wayling who took the great circle route snatched third from Ingram on the line.

Sunday morning, and another tow out for 3 races at 9.30. Race 3 saw Case use the local knowledge to lead round the track. Chris Roberts followed in a safe second while Childs managed to work through to 3rd just getting past Ingram – who again started well to lead but slipped back a little as the race progressed.

Race 4 saw some confusion as Gregory arrived at the windward mark first only to try to round it the wrong way, Wayling took full advantage to take a comfortable win, Childs second while Roberts held third. Case finished an amazing fourth having been shut out at the start and hitting the windward mark.

Race 5 would decide the event, with four different winners so far. Childs started well to lead from Thorpe, the first run saw indecision over which route to take, allowing Wayling through to second. Childs led by 30 metres at the final windward mark, before the long two mile run back down the channel into the tide to the finish. Childs held out for the first half before Wayling sailed round him and off to win (It was weed honest !!) Childs had to settle for second followed by Case and Gregory.

This left Wayling as the winner, from Childs, Case, Roberts and Gregory. A really close weekend’s sailing and great social – same again next time James please with another notch of breeze. Many thanks to Wells SC.
