Peak-Ryzex Albacore Internationals 2017 at the WPNSA - Day 3

by Mike Banner 10 Aug 2017 08:35 BST 5-11 August 2017

Tom Lonsdale and Steve Graham of Northampton SC are the new UK National Albacore Champions following Day 3 of the Peak-Ryzex sponsored Albacore Internationals at Weymouth.

With sailing back in the bay the fleet enjoyed two more races in a building breeze though the big left shift in Race 2 was the big talking point in the apres sail.

Tom Lonsdale and Steve Graham in 8235 continued where they left off with a third and a first to seal their Nationals title. Chris Turner and Alex Hayman won and R1 and third overall whilst last year's Nationals winners Judy and Paul Armstrong took a second to continue their rise up the leaderboard as did James and Julie Stanley in R2.

USA's Barney Harris and Dave Smith in 8258 did enough to claim second overall.

At the daily prize giving Ovington Top Ten Hats were handed out to the new qualifiers including Phil Smith and his best man Steve Carr.

And the class secured a first ever with a VR Sport filming the action, the results of which you should be able to see in this article.

Following a lay day with a tuning talk on Wednesday racing continues today with the small matter of the Peak-Ryzex Albacore Internationals champion still to be decided!
