Sail-World.com : SailJuice Global Warm-up final at Draycote Water SC preview

SailJuice Global Warm-up final at Draycote Water SC preview

SailJuice Global Warm-up final of the five events in the series is being held this weekend. The outcome hangs in the balance as competitors head to the Draycote Dash at Draycote Water near Coventry.

At first glance, the series looks set to be a three-way showdown between Sam Mettam and Richard Anderton’s Fireball, Ian Morgan’s Laser and the Scorpion sailed by Peter Gray and Rachael Rhodes. Matt Biggs and Ben Hollis also have a chance in their Merlin Rocket. They lie in fourth overall, with Tim Andrews’ Phantom in fifth, but the joker in the pack is another Phantom currently in sixth place, being campaigned by Andrew Wilde.

Wilde didn’t compete at the Bloody Mary in early January, although he has scored very well in the other three events of the Series thus far, at the Grafham Grand Prix, the Steve Nicholson Trophy and John Merricks Tiger Trophy. The Series scoring counts a competitor’s best four of five events, and if Wilde sails well at Draycote this weekend, he can discard his Bloody Mary no-show and surf past the other leading contenders for the title.

Consistency and stamina will be the key to success at Draycote, with at least four handicap races on Saturday and another race on Sunday morning followed by a concluding pursuit race.

Of the maximum 120 places available, as of Thursday morning more than 70 boats had already entered in advance. To enter the Draycote Dash click here.
