Teague and Millar are RS200 Club Champions

'RS200 Club Championship 2008 at Northampton SC'    ChunkyPics

Sunshine and light winds greeted the competitors for the Gul sponsored RS200 Club Championships at Northampton SC with a depleted entry due to the light wind forecast.

Race 1 started in challenging conditions with John Teague/Iain Millar leading from Julie Harrison/Fiona Hall, until the final leeward mark when Paul and Corrine Whitbread pulled through to take second from Julie Harrison/Fiona Hall in a photo finish followed by Caroline Martin/Sam Childs in fourth and Rosie and Tom Brearley in fifth.

A quick turnaround by the race team saw race two start in similarly light conditions, Julie Harrison/Fiona Hall led to the first windward mark with the rest of the fleet close on their heels, John Teague/Iain Millar pulled through downwind closely followed by Caroline Martin/Sam Childs to hold on to the finish with Rosie and Tom Brearley in third position followed by Julian Bradley/Lesley Bates in fourth and Julie Harrison/Fiona Hall in fifth.

A third race was attempted but the wind completely disappeared before the start, giving the race team no choice but to send the fleet ashore. The bar, evening sun and an excellent meal rounded off the day.

Sunday dawned with yet more sun, and even less wind. The occasional gust of wind kept the competitors on their toes ashore, but a consistent wind proved elusive so the race team wisely called it a day.

This gave John Teague/Iain Millar victory with Caroline Martin/Sam Childs taking second and Rosie and Tom Brearley in third on equal points with Julie Harrison/Fiona Hall in fourth and Paul and Corrine Whitbread in fifth.

The prize for the top club went to Burghfield who won a days coaching for their club from a top 200 coach. Many thanks must go to Northampton SC for a friendly and welcoming event in challenging conditions, and to Gul, LDC and the RS class association for some generous prizes.
