    The third event of the 2016 RS Sailing sponsored RS200 Northern Tour took place at Yorkshire Dales sailing club on Saturday 11th June.  17 visitors joined 8 home boats in the best turn out at a Northern Tour event for many years.


    Race 1 saw a two way battle with Martin and Barbara Smith taking an early lead from Mike Saul and Sophie Hartley only to be ground down by Mike and Sophie on the second lap.  Emma Clayton and Faye Caswell took third.


    Race 2 saw home boats take first and second with Keith Escritt and Andrea Clough taking the win from Ana Paterson and guest crew Harvey Martin.  Martin and Sian Joesbury were the best of the visitors taking third.


    Race 3 saw Keith and Andre take another bullet with Martin and Sian second and James Penty and George Stainforth in third place.


    Keith and Andrea looked to be in a controlling position at the lunch interval, but this changed in race four, with Budworth boats taking a 1-2-3.  Martin and Sian took a well deserved win from Jon and Heather Ward, who had steadily pulled through from a not uncharacteristic poor start to take second from Jon Chapman and Wendy Martin.


    This left all to play for in the final race with Martin and Sian leading by a single point from Keith and Andrea.  Both boats could still win the event with a final race victory.


    Keith and Andrea pulled through from 3rd at the first mark to take the win.   Russell and Annabel Page kept their best until last to take second place from Martin and Sian in third.


    Overall victory therefore went to Keith and Andrea by a single point from Martin and Sian with Mike and Sophie proving the most consistent of the rest to take third place from Ana and Harvey.

    Many thanks to Yorkshire Dales for a great event.
