Congratulations to Octavia Owen, Ali Mo, Sophie Taylor and all of the skippers and sailors at the Marlow Ropes Women's Match Racing Championship.

Following a complete double round robin it went to Semis and then Finals. In the peti final,  Sophie Taylor took third place from Rhiannon Massey 2:0 while the Final turned interesting.

Octavia took the first match but evened the score with Ali Morish by gybing onto port in front of her when 50yards from the finish. In the third race Ali was leading in to the finish when Octacia got an overlap, and Ali broached out. In the fourth race Ali got a pre-start penalty but got ahead and dumped it on the second beat. She then held Octavia out past the layline for the last mark and was leading in when her spinnaker decided it would rather be a fishing net, bringing the boat to a grinding halt and giving the event to Octavia. An unfortunate end to a really close fought final. 
There's some really nice video on the RYA Match Racing Facebook page and Click here for results  Spaces are available for Qualifier 2 of the National Match Race Series being held at Queen Mary on Oct 20/21. 

Due to a lack of interest the Eurosaf Open European Team Racing Championship Under 23 in Campione del Garda from the 4th to the 7th of October 2018 has been cancelled.
