There is now a draft version in the calendar on this website. Event finish times are an approximation merely to give an indication of the length of the event. The annual booklet will shortly be going to the printers. As soon as it is available next year’s membership documents will be issued.
Intrepid french photographer Erick Rossignol has sent in some great pictures and video from the recent Marblehead & 10R National Championships.
Massive gallery of pictures can be found here, David’s clearly chuffed with the photographs, Thanks Eric 🙂
Another corker from our resident Speilberg, Mr Tony Wilson. Good times.
What a difference a day makes at Fleetwood… torrential rain, followed by a consistent drizzle and the wind shifted 180 degrees from the previous 5 days. The first race was held in a gusty 14 knots with Dave Potter taking an early win. Slowly but surely the wind died away to nothing with John Tushingham scoring a couple of well deserved races wins and Yannick taking a brace with his swing rigged Kamsin2 (which looked particularly tasty in the light).
With the wind giving up and doing the crazy things it became impossible to set a decent course and the fleet went for an early bath with 25 races completed by 2pm.
Graham Bantock sailed a super consistent regatta to take the Championships with Yannick sneaking into second place late in the day with string of good results. David Potter and Matteo Longhi came in 3rd and 4th respectively with Roy Stevens winning the Classic Trophy with his IOTA.
We like to thank the following race team for carrying on after the Marblehead Nationals and putting on another cracking event for the 10’s…
- Derek Priestley
- Peter Baldwin
- Judith Baldwin
- Robert Owens
- Rick Ford
- Ken Crabtree
- Tim Lanigan
- Paul Balcombe
And of course we’ll finish with even more more pictures!
Coming hot on the heels of the Marblehead event; 16 top class skippers from 5 European nations made the startline for the MYA 10 Rater National Championships. Racing kicked off at 10am with a range of designs from a brand new Sonix (completed last week) through a flock of Diamonds, a couple of trick looking Kamsin2’s and a beautifully planked IOTA. Wind wise there was a steady 10-12 knots blowing (almost) straight down the lake all day long which saw a mix of top suits and second suits across the fleet.
We powered through 19 Races today in an effort to get ahead of a bad wind forecast tomorrow. Graham Bantock was the star of the show with Dave Potter and Yannick Rossingnol snapping at his heels. Although to be fair, they’ll have a job on tomorrow to try and catch him.
Nota bene: Boat 83 received re-address in race 16 which is why there are two 2nd place scores.
Another highlight of the day was raking up a mobile phone which took a swim before the last race. Luckily the damn thing was waterproof and worked perfectly after its dip 🙂
And finally here’s an orgy of photographs of these glorious yachts.
