Asymmetric Open meeting

Ok so the forecast wasn’t very good and you preferred to stay at home and keep warm. But those that turned up braved the elements in shifty conditions and blew away all cobwebs!

The changeable winds lead to very close racing for the first lap of a windward leeward course. But Steve Hunt and Ruth Critchley then broke away in their RS400 and went on to win the first race.

Martin and Rachel Crouch are still new to the RS400s – a screaming reach, a lull and another gust lead to their demise. To top it all Rachel fell out on the way back to shore and they threw in another capsize for good luck (although Herb Telford may have distracted them at the time) but seemed to keep laughing about it all the way.

Strong winds eased throughout Sunday racing. Martin Crouch continued to dominate the first beats which again lead to some close racing. However, Steve Hunt pulled back through to win both races.

Prizelist: 1st Steve Hunt, 2nd Martin Crouch
