Sail-World.com : Torch Relay Race at Chew Valley Lake SC
Torch Relay Race at Chew Valley Lake SC

'Torch Relay Race at Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club'    RYA
A total of sixty-six boats racing in three fleets lit up the water in Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club’s Torch Relay Race on the 23 May, which formed part of the club’s Wednesday Evening Series of races which runs from April to September each year.

The weather was glorious, with brilliant sunshine and a fairly constant eight knots of wind from the south west to start. Race Officer Keith Harris set an Olympic style course and each of the fleets started perfectly on time.

The special prize for the evening, the RYA Olympic Torch went to Freya Cumpsty who won Gold in the 13 years and under category sailing a Topper whilst her elder sister Ellie won Gold in the 18 years and under category sailing a Laser.

Peter Rose sailing with Fiona Wisloff won a very convincing Gold in the A Handicap Fleet sailing his Scorpion, followed by Dave Sweet and Jackie Ireland in an RS 200 and Paul and Liza Clements in a Buzz.

In the B Handicap Fleet it was Graham Cranford-Smith who mastered the conditions best to win Gold by 40 seconds in front of Errol Edwards closely followed by George Simpkins both sailing Solos.

The very impressive fleet of 26 Lasers was won by grand master Peter Sherwin, with Damian Boreham taking silver and Duncan Whitrow, bronze.

The Olympic themed prizes for the evening were donated by the RYA as part of their Sail for Gold campaign to inspire more people to become more active in sailing and send support and encouragement to Team GBR’s London 2012 sailors.

The next Sail for Gold event to take place at Chew will be the Family Regatta on RYA 'Push The Boat Out Day' (Saturday 21st July) which will include as a special guest the infamous Cap'n Denny, and a commemorative Olympic Race Day on Sunday 22 July with more Olympic style courses and gold medals to be won.
