Harken D-Zero National Championship at Royal Torbay Yacht Club - Day 2

by Neil Washington on 18 Jun 16-18 June 2017

There was a postponement of nearly two hours to allow the wind to fill in and for the Brixham trawlers to thunder across the bay in their race.

Once racing got underway, the Restronguet fleet showed their class with Paul Scullion and George Cousins taking 3 of the 4 race wins.

After day 2 George Cousins heads the fleet with Paul Scullion in 2nd and overnight leader Greg Bartlett dropping to 3rd.
