Miracle National Championships at Rutland Sailing Club - Day 5

by Brian Jones on 14 Aug 2015 9-12 August 2015

A brilliant day for racing, with F3-4 North Easterlies building throughout the day. Races 6 and 7 saw 3 capsizes and ended with four possible National Champions depending on the last race on Friday.

Wayne Atherton and Angela Sweeney have a one point lead after two second places today. Hannah and Nick Smith although winning Race 6 trail a point behind. Jack Hopkins and Ross Southwell gained two third places and are a further point behind.

Not out of the running and promoted to the Gold fleet Dave Butler and Ross Flemming won race 7 and trail by just one further point. How close can you get? Never has a Miracle Nationals been so hotly contested by so many crews.

Tracy Amos and Gemma Gibson lead the Silver Fleet with some solid performances today while Ellen Main and Hannah Mumford lead the Bronze with an 11th place overall.

The final race of the Youth and Juniors was also sailed today but we will have to write up on that one tomorrow as the results sheet was incorrect at the time of viewing.
