Allen Enterprise Nationals at South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club - Day 2

by Phil Ford on 9 Aug 5-11 August 2017

Day two of the Allen Brothers Enterprise National Championships at SCYC proved a breezy affair, favouring the big boys.

Race 4 started in a steady F4 northerly on a windward-leeward course punching into a strong tide. The fleet split up the first beat with the early leaders coming from either side, the middle of the course not being favoured. Following a close fight at the front it was Paul Hobson and Craig Wheatley sailing Blue Job on Top who prevailed, closely followed by Martin and Abigail Honnor in Riot Van and Jon Woodward and Karen Alexander in Simply Red.

Race 5 started with slightly more breeze on a triangle / sausage course. Blue Job on Top again led round the windward mark followed closely by Martin Honnor with the pack close by. A hunt for the wing mark followed causing some congestion and heated debate. As the race unfolded, Blue Job on Top extended their lead, with the overall championship leader Jeremy and Becca Stephens sailing That's Entertainment moving through into second with Ann Jackson and Alan Skeens sailing To Infirmity and Beyond in third.

By the end of racing for the day, Jeremy and Becca Stephens lead the event at the halfway stage with the discard to come in after the next race. All to play for with some variable and windy conditions expected for the rest of the week.
