Sail-World.com : RS800 Nationals Day 2 at Weymouth

RS800 Nationals Day 2 at Weymouth

'RS800 Nationals'    Fotoboat.com ©
RS800 Nationals are part of the RS Games being held at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA) which take place until 26th August 2011. The second day of racing has now been completed.

Portland Harbour delivered a fantastic day's racing on the sixty boat RS800 fleet at the second day of the RS800 Games. A fresh breezes of 18-22 knots with gusts as much as 27 knots combined with a flat water of the Harbour is what RS800 sailing is all about - big speeds without fuss.

Stevie Wilson and Alain Sign ‘LDC’ continued their dominance with a 1,1,1 to have a clean sweep of firsts in an impressive display of speed and control. It is looking like Stevie may break his duck of 3 times runner up this year. He is going to have go some if he is going to miss winning this one but carelessly he does have a bright green spinnaker so anything might happen!

Second best performer of the day was Peter Barton and Paul Davis ‘Harken’ with a 3,2,2 revelling in the windy conditions with some great pace upwind. This moves them up to 3rd place overall behind Ian Martin and Jonny Clegg who recorded a 2,3,7.

Quotes of the day

'My best days racing this year' said Russell Clark of the nip and tuck racing in strong breezes.

'I just put my arm behind my head and went on tippy toes like' explained Paul Davis of the discovery of their upwind pace.

Allyson Oddy is top girl crewing for class chairman Andy Jeffries. On the influx of girls into the fleet as a result of the RS800 being the chosen training boat for the newly formed Women’s Skiff Squad 'It is great seeing so many new girls in the fleet, but the changing rooms are certainly getting more crowded!'
