Sail-World.com : Rowans Pursuit Race at Mengeham Rythe SC

Rowans Pursuit Race at Mengeham Rythe SC

'Left to right: David Proctor, Conway Parke, Graeme Macdonald, Anthony Penfold - Rowans Pursuit Race'    Mengeham Rythe SC

Rowans Pursuit Race 2011 was held on 5th June at Mengeham Rythe Sailing Club.

The annual race was a successful event and despite the entries being low, with only 20 boats taking part compared to 54 in a previous year, the club managed to raise just over £870 for the Rowans Hospice from the entries, a raffle, tombola, donations, craft stall and afternoon teas.

A brisk strong wind and the threat of showers just before the start of the pursuit race may have affected the entry numbers but those who did take part enjoyed the race with a very close finish.

The wind forecast was for a north easterly, force 4 to 5, and a course was laid accordingly. The first boat to start was Conway Parke sailing in a RS Tera followed by four Toppers in hot pursuit. The wind went light soon after the start but the RS Tera maintained a commanding lead until the last leg when it was overtaken in the final seconds of the 2¼ hour race by Anthony Penfold in the leading Solo and two of the Finns. This was one of the most exciting finishes the club has seen in the twelve years of running the Rowans Pursuit Race.
