The 2017 RS Sailing sponsored RS200 Northern tour kicked off at Delph SC on Saturday 8th April with a beautiful sunny day and light southerly winds greeting the 10 boats from 6 different clubs.

Five races were sailed throughout the day with Keith Escritt & Andrea Clough winning the first race from Martin & Sian Joesbury with Ollie Groves & Esther Parkhurst taking third.

The second race was sailed back to back and this time Martin & Sian won out with Ruddell and Vicky Page making it a Budworth 1-2. Ollie & Esther came in third.

After lunch three races were sailed back to back. The top two were a repeat of the second race with Martin & Sian again winning from with Martin & Barbara Smith finishing third.

The fourth race saw Keith & Andrea bounce back after a couple of poorer results to take the win from Ollie & Esther with Marin & Sian finishing third.

This left a straight battle between Martin & Sian and Keith & Andrea for overall honours with Keith & Andrea needing to win with Martin & Sian no better than third if they were to win the event.

At the first mark, Keith & Andrea were in the lead, but Martin & Sian were in second. The positions remained the same throughout the race with Keith &Andrea taking the win from Martin & Sian with Martin & Barbara in third.

Martin & Sian counted two first and two seconds to take the event win from Keith & Andrea who had three race wins, but had to count a fourth. Ollie and Esther proved the best of the rest to take third place.

Additional sponsorship was provided by Ian Turnbull in the form of £10 Rope4Boats vouchers which were raffled off to all entrants. The raffle winners were James Ricketts from Ripon SC and A Barton from Delph SC. Great to see the vouchers being spread amongst the fleet.
