Rutland Sailing Club brought out the ‘big guns’ to provide a superb team of umpires for the BSDRA regional team racing championships on Saturday 18th May. Led by chief umpire Steve Tylecote, the race officials included several massive team racers to help the teachers who had brought school teams from across the region. 14 teams sailed 54 races in 3 flights with an extra 2 boats ready on the beach as (un-needed) ‘battle casualty replacements’.Ipswich, Oakham, Rutland Youth and Royal Hospital School reached the semi-finals. The best-of-three final was decided on the final beat of the last race: Ipswich rounded mark four in 2,3,4 but they failed to cover the boats in 5 & 6 who benefited from a shift and the race went to Oakham who thus took home the cup.
