Sail-World.com : British domination at RS Feva substitute event in Holland
British domination at RS Feva substitute event in Holland

A fleet of five British Feva’s travelled to the Netherlands over the weekend. They were supposed to compete in the United 4 event at Medemblik. However due to the conditions with a week to go, the event was deemed unsafe for the 400 sailors entered for the event.

As we had been training in worse all year the British sailors decided to make the journey anyway. The Dutch RS FEva Class Association was amazing and moved the event to a lake just south of Amsterdam and 21 boats still made the trip.

The lake was unbelievable deep. Some 60m in parts which considering there are basically no hills in the Netherlands, this was a shock!

However, even with this difficulty, we managed a great days training on Friday in 15-20 knots and two great days racing over the weekend.

The British salors certainly did not have it their own way but managed to fill the podium at the end of the weekend and in most races.

In third place was Tommy and Will, sailing a very consistent series with some great comebacks. In second were Courtney and Orla. The girls won the last three races and were the stars of the second day, which was sailed in less than three knots!

However, the deserved victors were Elliot and Jake who did a horizon job in the first three races and sailed consistently in the rest to easily take the event.

A great performance and lots of talent on show. There are certainly some names here to watch out for in the future!
