Redwing National Championship at the Isles of Scilly - Overall

by Brian Carvey 28 Aug 2016 16:10 BST 21-26 August 2016

With no wind forecast for the scheduled final day all competitors agreed to the running of two races on Thursday to complete the Championships.

The first race started well enough, but the wind fell away quickly making progress challenging. In the end the winner was Colin Crabb from Arthur Kinver with local man Keith Buchanan in third, however from that point getting to the finish line became a very slow affair.

After a delay the breeze filled in and after some course changes the final race got underway.

Colin Crabb again got an excellent start however Buchanan, needing only a second to take the title, didn't get a good start and had to work his way up through the fleet, only managing fifth. This gave overjoyed Colin Crabb and crew Adam Hayler their first Championship win together with a one point advantage.

All the competitors enjoyed a great week both on and off the water and would like to thank the Scillonian Sailing Club for all their hard work.
