GJW Direct Lark Nationals at Penzance Sailing Club - Overall

by Stuart Hydon 22 Aug 2014 21:57 BST 16-22 August 2014

Going into the last day, first place was nailed by Charlie Roome and Jez Stephens, but 2nd place was all to play with a potential 6 competitors in for the shout. Friday morning in the dinghy park was a little quieter than normal probably due to excesses of the previous evening with the "PZ" fancy dress party.

Friday race 1 (race 7) – Harry and Jemma Pynn led the fleet around the trapezoid course with Roome/Stephens pushing them hard all the way. James and Katie Ward held on to third despite challenges from Will Coxford/Chris Warburton.

Friday race 2 (race 9) – The course had been substituted to an Olympic course with a gate start. Those that started mid-way along were favoured as they picked the way up the middle playing the shifts. Stuart and Nick Hydon rounded first with an enormous lead and capitalised on this position. Emma and Matt white battled with Mike Senior and Nicky Booth who eventually pulled through. This was short lived on the second beat where Roome and Stephens picked their way through to second. Emma and Matt managed to secure third over Senior/Booth up the final beat.

Thanks go to Penzance SC for hosting a terrific championships and congratulations to Charlie and Jez as 2014 Lark Championship Winners!

Thanks to Helly Hansen for all the great prizewear!

The Lark class - a new perspective
Thoughts from Tim Fells after his first Lark Nationals in 24 years Twenty-four years ago, I hung up my Lark boots for what I thought would be the last time. I had enjoyed an incredible 20 years of Lark racing and socialising, beginning with my first experience of a National Championships as a Birmingham student. Posted on 22 Jun

Musto Lark Nationals at Rock overall
A challenging and fitful breeze on the final day The final day dawned to grey skies, some rain and a forecast of possible thunderstorms. Though they didn't materialise, they would probably have been a better option than the challenging conditions the fleet had to endure. Posted on 2 Jun
