RS400s at Parkstone Y.C. Sunshine, wind and waves as Nick Craig/James Stewart post three straight bullets After a recalled start to the first race, the black flag restored discipline to the fleet, who got away in 12-15 knots, sunshine and moderate waves - fantastic conditions. The leading boats came in from the right on the first beat and it was Nick Craig/James Stewart who sailed an excellent beat to pull through into an early lead, followed by Jon Gorringe/Toby Lewis and Steve Venebles/Richard Brown. After two laps of tough upwinds and blasting downwinds, the top two remained the same but Tom Halhead/Chris Bishop pulled out the stops downwind to take third from Venebles/Brown. The wind built slightly for the second race, and a big left shift up the first beat put Archie Massey/Simon Walker into the lead at the first mark, but they couldn’t hold off the pack downwind and Craig/Stewart were at the front again, this time with Hywel Robots/Duncan Glen pushing them hard all the way. Behind them, Halhead/Bishop staged another recovery to take third. In the third race, Craig/Stewart port tacked the fleet and sailed into a very big lead in what was the longest race of the day. Venebles/Brown held off Paul Hilliar/Stuart Jagger in a final beat tacking duel to take second but the biggest battle was taking place just behind. After over an hour of racing, approx 15 seconds separated fourth to ninth place! Sunday looked promising but with wind gusting to 35 knots the inevitable happened and racing was abandoned, leaving Craig/Stewart as convincing winners.
