Race Report

For the third year in a row, the Saturday of the IRC Small Boat Regatta, hosted by the Royal Air Force Yacht Club, bought challenging conditions, though happily in an improvement on 2013. This year saw a full three races sailed for both classes, one windward/leeward, one triangle/sausage and one round the cans courses were used, all in 20 knots + from the SW.DSC_0098

In Class One, James Morland’s quarter tonner Menace dominated proceedings as they handled the conditions best and bagged three bullets ahead of Tom Hill’s beautiful quarter Runaway Bus who were second in each race. Oliver Love and Sam Flint headed the Impala challenge completing the top three on each occasion.

This year’s RTI proved to be very hot, slow and frustrating, though beautiful day on the water; if you were in no hurry to be anywhere! Our Hats Off to all of you who persevered and made it through to the finish, especially those from the back of the fleet getting through the wind hole!

Congratulations to Firefly, Chris Glanton and Rachel van Velzen who managed to collect a prize for 2nd in ISCRS Div 8A - Elapsed time 12:53:38 corrected 11:57:56 making 97 O/A in ISCRS.

Below are the results for the 5 teams we entered this year, two in IRC and three in ISCRS.

Alas, no team trophies this year.
