ELYC Yacht Regatta 2013

03 Jul 2013 11:39 AM | Anonymous

The Yacht Regatta was held on Saturday 29th June over 4 races. Originally the plan was to also race on Sunday but due to the weather forecast, it was decided to hold 4 races on Saturday, rather than the the original 3 planned races. Unfortunately, only 3 boats took part, probably due to the date chosen, which was at the start of the school holidays. Two races were held on Saturday morning, and the 3rd race was started with the dinghy race sequence in the afternoon. The 4th race started after the 2nd dinghy start.


Jeremy Willing and John Elcock, sailing the Hawk 20, 'Sundance' achieved four 1st places to win the regatta. Alastair Skinner in the Red Fox 'Aquila' scored four 2nd places and Martin and Val Baillie in their Medina 'Westway' scored four 3rd places.
