Miracle National Championships at Rutland Sailing Club - Day 4

by Brian Jones on 13 Aug 2015 9-12 August 2015

The wind came as promised but from the NW eventually building to F2-3 with bright sunshine all day.

Three races were sailed with first places going to Wayne Atherton and Angela Sweeney from Delph, Yvonne and Brian Mumford in their brand new self-build from Redoubt and Jack Hopkins and Ross Southwell also from Delph.

Hannah and Nick Smith who had been leading the fleet suffered a black flag penalty along with 3 other boats in race 3 but gained a second place in Race 4.

Dave Butler and Ross Flemming from Welton continued to dominate the Silver fleet with a second and a third place overall, but Tracy Amos and Gemma Gibson from Redoubt were the highest placed Silver fleet boat in Race 4.

Ellen Main and Hannah Mumford were clear leaders in the Bronze fleet with a consistent 7th, 11th and 6th over the three races.
