Scorpion Open at Staunton Harold Sailing Club

by Tom Jeffcoate on 21 Apr 2011 17 April 2011

Almost no wind greeted the Scorpion fleet at Staunton Harold on Sunday 17th April.

After an hour's delay as some wind filled in 9 boats took to the water with Nigel Potter and Jerry Hannabuss, making the best of the shifting conditions, to be first to the windward mark followed by Peter Gray and Rich Pepperdine, then Andy Mckee and Tarren Jones.

As the wind dropped Mckee made the most of the very light wind to take the lead with Tom Jeffcoate and Barry Rawlins close behind, followed by Graham Watts and Mark Harden.

With the wind coming and going, places changed apart from the leader, and Mckee managed to hold his lead to the line from Jeffcoate and then Potter came in third.

No further racing took place as the wind went to nothing.

Overall Results:

1st 1951, Andy Mckee & Tarren Jones (Dovestone S.C.)
2nd 1998, Tom Jeffcoate & Barry Rawlins (Notts County S.C.)
3rd 2018, Nigel Potter & Jerry Hannabuss (Notts County S.C.)
