Int. Canoe Nationals at Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club Day 2

by Chris Hampe 6 Aug 2012 06:37 BST 4-7 August 2012

Day two of the Ullman Sails International Canoe Europa Cup started with heavy rain and a light southerly breeze. The race committee and safety boat teams from our host at the Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club did an excellent job setting three races either side of shipping movements to ensure a fair and clear course was maintained.

With lighter winds the International Canoe fleet was much more tightly bunched with several place changes as the wind speed and direction varied throughout the races. In the end there was no stopping Alistair Warren from scoring three race wins from John Ellis who maintained a set of three second places to move up to second overall.

The real battle is for third overall and a capsise for Steve Clark whilst leading race 3 could prove costly as after the discard is applied sits tied on points with Simon Allen and Chris Hampe.

In the Asymmetric fleet Robin Wood scored 1, 2, 1 to extend his lead over Steve Bowen who had a scoreline of 2, 3, 7. Tony Robertshaw jumps up to 3rd overall after winning race 4 and finishing 2nd in race 5.
