Volvo Noble Marine RS200 Nationals at Tenby - Day 3

by Sally Campbell on 30 Aug 26-31 August 2017

After what turned into a big night for some last night (Tom McLean/Tommy Darling/Syd McLean et al) where karaoke followed from Julian's questionably intellectual quiz, the sailors arrived early to the boat park for a three race day.

Race 1 was swiftly started with Caroline Croft/Alex Warren as the pathfinder, with one recall the race was underway in relatively light winds, it paid to bang hard left up the beat to make use of the shift, At the sailors request the first beat was made longer so those who chose the left were set up nicely for the race. Race 1 was won by Ben Palmer/Amy Seabright.

Three hours and 3 attempts later, race 2 was FINALLY underway! With lots of bobbing about the sailors were eager to get going. Young guns Henry and Lucy were the pathfinder, special mentions to the person who managed to get their bowsprit through the A frame of the Gate RIB and Matt Whitfield who was OCS. Once the race was going the wind had filled in nicely and it was breeze on! The race officer set a great course which Jonny McGovern played the best to have a stellar lead in this race – with lots of sailors over standing on port and the tide equally catching many out, the windward mark roundings were made interesting but clean sailing was observed by the fleet.

Race 3 was turned around very quickly as it started to get later into the day and sailors were anxious to get ready for the nights big social – Under the Sea fancy dress!! It paid to play the shifts and have good boat speed for this race which was shown by Hamish Walker & Emma Hivey who won this race with it being shortened to two laps by the race officer who clearly took pity on the sailors.

We all know the arguably most important race is the race back to shore/showers/the bar so many sailors seemed to speed in to get their fishy costumes on ready for tonight's social.

Report from Quizmaster Julian Bradley

100 RS200 teams rocked up in Tenby, South West Wales, decimating the jellyfish population. Not the only large and wobbly things in a charmingly fishy and be-cobbled walled crabbing village.

Seven grim hours and 3 races on the water on Tuesday, in which special mention goes to Matt Whitfield... who was premature on a gate start (challenging), sailed in, sailed out again only to miss the start of race 3. Also to be mentioned in Despatches is our patient PRO, who was most attentive and particular... particularly in regard to windward mark-laying and highly polished (louche) cannon. We understand each mark was 17psi. The Beach Master, Terry (and team), have been fantastic.

It was my honour and privilege to host the RS200 Quiz Night, sponsored by Doombar and Cummins Cider. Huge thanks go to the Shrimp and Emma Hivey for adding up the results for 5 rounds from some 24 teams within 15 minutes. Not soon enough however, so the results are... Joint winners with 33 points were Voracious Gobblers, Gadaffi Duck, and the Fringe Ninjas, then the Fuzzy Dunlops, They were closely followed by I'll Be The Pig, Trivia Newton John, Emergency Brexit, Stephen Hawking's Foot Ball Boots and Monged Up Ginger. 668 (The Neighbour of the Beast) were last.
