  • Harken National Youth Match Racing
    Congratulations to Robbie King and his crew, winners of the Hrken National Youth Match Racing sailed in Eliott 6m's at WPNSA.

    Blustery conditions on Saturday saw the mains reefed and at the end of thefirst round robin Robbie was half a race win ahead of Ted Blowers who was penalised by the Umpires on a technicality. In the second round robin both of them finished on five wins each as Robbie lost to George Haynes, so it was pretty even between them going into the knock-out stage.

    Both semis went 2:0 with Robbie King defeating Octavia Owen and Ted Blowers beating George Haynes, while the lower end of the fleet sailed for the lower positions. 

    The Peti-final went to George Haynes 2:0, as did the Final which saw Robbie King crowned as 2019 National Match Racing Champion. Full results can be seen if you Click Here.  For photos Click Here. Videos are on Facebook

  • It's very quiet
    At this time of year it is quite quiet on the Team Racing Front, which is why it was nice to hear from Niamh and Sophie at Birmingham, reminding us that the Brummy Bender has been re-named as the Brummie BOOM! Always a good event. We already had it in our calendar but do let us know if you think an event should be in the calendar.

    BUSA is also asking for bids for their Playoffs at the beginning of March. Get bidding! 

    The Youth Match Racing still has places. Remember for this you must be under 22 at year end (or born after 31/12/97) This will be happening on Aug 31/Sept 1

  • BSDRA Finals
    The 30th British Schools Sailing Association Finals took place at Oxford Sailing Club over the weekend of June 22/23. With 38 entries in the Firefly three boat event and the Feva Under 16 two boat event this was one of the biggest events of the year.

    Stage 1 saw 147 races sailed for the 21 Firefly teams and 136 races for the 17 Feva teams in shifty and variable conditions. Stage 2 saw the Fireflies broken into four leagues and the Fevas - three leagues before going to the knock out semis and finals.

    In the Fireflies, despite a three way tie at the end of Stage 1 between Rutland, RGS Green and Sevenoaks Red, at the end of Stage 2 it was Sevenoaks, RGS and MCS going through to the Semis, with winner of the Gold B League Norwich making up numbers. MCS took out RGS 2:1 but Sevenoaks needed a deciding race to take out Norwich (2:1). On the Silver Knock out it was Oakham Red taking out Claires Court and RGS Red defeating CVLSC. The Silver Final went to three races with RGS Red beating Oakham Red 2:1. In the Gold Final the Sevenoaks Red Team of Annabel, Cassie, Nick, Charlie, Anne-Marie and Alice beat MCS 2:1 to take the Whitstable Shield.
