505 UK National Championship at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy

by Editor 21 Jul 2021 03:15 PDT 17-20 July 2021

Light winds plagued the 505 UK Nationals in Weymouth, with the first two days seeing no racing at all, then four races packed into Monday, and only a single race possible on the final day.

Tom Gillard and Geoff Edwards prevailed in the end, taking the title by a single point ahead of Roger Gilbert & Ben McGrane with Penny & Russ Clark completing the podium.

Take a look at the Ingrid Abery photo gallery above to see some of the light wind action.
