Sail-World.com : Record Entry for Mengeham Rythe SC Regatta
Record Entry for Mengeham Rythe SC Regatta
Mengeham Rythe Sailing Club had a record 88 entrants for its Open Regatta on Sunday 20 July 2008 with the fast Foiling Moths providing the best spectacle and first across the line in 82 minutes. The 13 events were particularly well supported by the Asymmetric Classes, Finns and Solos.
The course was set in Chichester Harbour and with a north easterly breeze of force 4 to 5, gusting 6 at times, there were a number of retirements. A club finish provided great entertainment for the spectators and a test of the sailors’ skills as the 53 finishing boats crossed the line in the narrow creek on a falling tide.
