J24 European Championship at the Royal Western Yacht Club - Day 1

by Robin Price 15 Aug 2016 21:00 BST 13-19 August 2016

The opening day of the J24 European Championship started in what only can be described as champagne sailing conditions in this year's host city, Plymouth.

The 37 boats were greeted by sunshine and the prospect of force 5 conditions for the day and were not disappointed during the three races held today south on Plymouth breakwater.

Unusually, for the highly competitive J24 fleet all three races got underway safely with no sign of a black flag being raised. Race Officer, David Lovegrove, said: "I was very pleased with the behavior of the fleet today, those who chose to head back to the breakwater gained best from the tide and the wind shifts".

The top three are subject to protest are Phoenix GBR 4242, Cocoon GBR 4269 and Vitesse GBR 5467.

Phoenix said of the first day of racing, "It's has been a fantastic day, great breeze and excellent courses set by Race Officer, David Lovegrove, and his team. The competition is exceedingly close with every place hard fought, we can't wait for more of the same tomorrow. Up and down the fleet the racing was close and every good tack and mark rounding made a difference."

The results at the end of the day show that the fleet is closely matched, its competitive racing at its best! Results after three races can be found on The Royal Western Yacht Club later tonight.

Back on shore tonight's entertainment is hosted by the German Fleet and thanks to them for their hospitality on a balmy evening to end Day 1 in style.
