RS200 Southerns, Rooster National Tour & West Country Boat Repairs SW Ugly Tour at Parkstone

by Niki Birrell 20 Jul 20:50 PDT 16-17 July 2022

An impressive full entry of 40 boats travelled to Parkstone YC on 16th July for the RS200 Southern Championships for a weekend event on the Rooster National Tour, combined with a one-day event for the West Country Boat Repairs SW Ugly Tour.

The fleet were greeted with a lovely 10-15 knot breeze and wall-to-wall sunshine that stayed throughout the day. Race Officer Bryan Drake and his team did a fantastic job to get 4 races away on day 1, with tight racing throughout the fleet. After racing, a tired fleet came ashore to the welcome sight of an ice cream van giving out free ice creams!

A lovely curry dinner followed, and this concluded the SW Ugly Tour event, with Chris Catt and Ian Martin taking the honours, from Robe Henderson and Elouise Mayhew in 2nd and Hamish Walker and Emma Hivey in 3rd.

Conditions were similar on day 2, glorious sunshine and 10-15 knot winds. The Race Officer set 2 longer 3-lap races, which once again produced tight racing where any small mistake could cost multiple places, as demonstrated by the author of this report with a capsize on the final leg of one race!

Once ashore the fleet enjoyed delicious cakes baked by the club members - we really do love Parkstone YC!

Congratulations to Ian Martin and Chris Catt who sailed a consistent series to win by 5 points from Hamish Walker and Emma Hivey. Niki Birrell and Ben Whaley were 3rd on equal points with Matt Mee and Tom Pygall, leaving Ben asking Niki if they'd left it too late to enter the 'insane' 170 boat RS200 Nationals!

The Rooster Endeavour prize went to Alex and Mike Cleaver, who had travelled all the way from Budworth SC.

Many thanks to all at Parkstone YC for delivering another seamless and memorable event and of course to our sponsors Rooster and West Country Boat Repairs.

A real day of Snakes and Ladders It's hard to remember a day when the wind in Poole Harbour has been shiftier than it was on the Tuesday. During the racing, between 2pm and about 5pm when the fleets returned ashore, the wind was flicking between about 020 degrees and 130 degrees. Posted on 31 Aug

Reading the wind, negotiating the tide, avoiding the mud For Poole Week competitors on Monday, it was all about getting on the right side of the wind shifts. There were a lot of them, and they were big. That and negotiating the tide, while some later in the day also had to think about keels and mud. Posted on 30 Aug
