Miracle National Championships at Rutland Sailing Club - Overall

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

History made!

First Lady Champion, congratulations to Hannah and Nick Smith from Thornbury SC. First four boats in race 8 crewed by female helms. Three boats in the top four in Race 8 all from Redoubt SC.

The day dawned with a light northerly and limited visibility in the low cloud. Wisely the racing was postponed until the promised westerly set in, leaving the four potential champions "chewing their finger nails".

The first beat in light shifty winds was a real tester with Yvonne and Brian Mumford being first round the windward mark, a position they held till the finish. Hannah and Nick Smith were close behind determined to hold off Wayne Atherton and Angela Sweeney from Delph SC who they need to beat to gain the trophy, this they did by staying in second place with Wayne and Angela 5th, giving them second overall.

Dave Butler and Ross Flemming from Welton ended the series in fourth beaten by Jack Hopkins and Ross Southwell in third place overall. Ellen Main and Hannah Mumford from Redoubt both from the Youth and Junior fleet sailed superbly to come fourth in Race 8, gaining 11th place overall.

Miracle 124 sailed on its 40th birthday by Steve and Richard Fischer from Aldenham SC enjoyed the day in 9th place with 16th overall. The rain returned and the wind died shortly after the race finished so completing a great weeks sailing at Rutland very well managed by the resident race team.

The Youth and Juniors, completed the previous day in fairly wild conditions with a few swimming lessons thrown in, was won by Andrew and James Robinson from Whitefriars SC first Youth, Ross Southwell and Jack Hopkins from Delph second and Ellen Main and Hannah Mumford Warsash/Redoubt SCs first Junior. They probably sailed this last race in the most testing conditions of the week.
