Sail-World.com : Mirror Nationwide Trophy at Poole

Mirror Nationwide Trophy at Poole

'Crewsaver Mirror Nationwide Trophy'    Peter Lulham-Robinson

Crewsaver Mirror Nationwide Trophy.

There was a good showing of local and Scottish boats that turned out to challenge the visitors from as far away as Poole Yacht Club.


Saturday
Very light shifty winds tested the skills of all helms and crews on Saturday. The race officer did a great job to get all three scheduled races sailed in the prevailing conditions. Competition was very close at all levels within the fleet with lots of very close racing taking place

First Race
Sarah Richards with son George took an early lead then fell into a hole on one of the off wind legs. Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson came very close to overtaking and then fell back to be piped at the finishing line by Andrew Greenhalgh by literally a few centimetres.

Second Race
Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson lead from the start with Sarah and George Richards in hot pursuit Andrew Greenhalgh keeping a watching brief in third until the last beat where he spotted a lift off to the right and sneaked through to take line honours with Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson second and Sarah and George Richards third.

Third Race
This proved to be the lightest race of the weekend and Sarah Richards and George took line honours with Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson second following a good third place by Will Hide and Emma Clayton.

This was also a coached Open supported by RYA Scotland. This meant that the second 50% if the fleet were given guidance and support to help them improve their racing skills both on and off the water.

Saturday evening meal was provided by Annandale SC and, given the unusually warm conditions, everyone enjoyed an alfresco meal in the evening sun and helped Sophie Benn to celebrate her 11th birthday over looking the loch.

Sunday
Glorious sunshine greeted competitors after breakfast on Sunday. The forecast was good for the afternoon but not a breath of wind appeared until 12:00 noon.

Fourth Race
Roy Platford was first to the windward mark and down the first run but was overtaken by Rosie and Midge Watkins from Poole SC. Up the second beat Emma and Rachel Grayson took advantage of a left side shift and stormed into a lead which they held to the finish, followed by Sarah and George Richards second and Andrew Greenhalgh finished third.


Fifth Race.
The breeze was beginning to build and this proved to be a ding dong battle between Andrew Greenhalgh and Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson with Rosie and Midge Watkins in hot pursuit.and it finished in that order.

Sixth Race
Another very close battle was fought by the Grayson Girls and the Lulham-Robinson boys to finish a very hotly contested event. Result LR boys first, Grayson Girls second followed in third by Andrew Greenhalgh.

All competitors agreed that this was a great weekend at Annandale SC, Very close racing, excellent social on Saturday evening and great prizes and support from our major event and series sponsor Crewsaver plus coaching support from RYA Scotland. Thank you everybody!!!!

Andrew Greenhalgh was the worthy winner of a very close fought event.
