    Bough Beech RS200 Open 2014

    Grey skies and drizzle greeted the twenty competitors at the second SEAS open meeting of the year at Bough Beech on 26th April. Fortunately things brightened up before the first start and the fleet got away first time into a force 4 southerly blowing straight down the lake. There were plenty of gusts & shifts in the breeze but the boats were still closely bunched at the first mark. It was Mark Heather & Lucy Preston and Nick & Juliet Charles who emerged from the pack to make the early running. The racing stayed close throughout the race with Heather winning from Charles with Charlie Roome & Eddie Glennie third. The second race was almost a carbon copy of the first with Mark Heather leading round the first mark from Nick Charles. These two had a close tussle for most of the race before Heather found the turbo pedal on the last round to open up a huge lead. Dave & Nicky Derby came through to finish third.

     

    After lunch the wind picked up a notch or two and with it came some new faces to the front. Dave Jessop & Megan Chamberlain led round the first mark and stayed ahead for most of the race. However Nick Charles chased hard and managed to get through to win with Mark Heather recovering to finish third.

     

    With Charles & Heather level on points it all came down to the last race. Dan Goodman had a cracking start to lead at the first mark but Nick Charles was close on his heels and wasted no time in getting through to first place. Charlie Roome won the scrap for third from Dave Derby. Mark Heather was buried at the start & could only manage seventh. This meant that Nick Charles won the meeting from Mark Heather with Charlie Roome third.
