29er class during the Ovington Inlands at Grafham Water Sailing Club

by Alfie Cogger 22 Nov 2017 15:37 GMT 18-19 November 2017

On 18th & 19th November 44 boats competed at the 29er Ovington Inland Championships hosted by Grafham Water Sailing Club.

Saturday brought cloud and mild, shifty winds below 10 knots. The race officer had set a good course which allowed us to complete five races. Good consistent sailing saw Freddie Peters & Elliott Wells finish top of the fleet after day one with Nick & Billy close behind after a couple of wins during the day. The lead changed three times during the day, with race wins coming from Freya & Millie, Nick & Billy with Freddie & Elliott taking the last win of the day, to leave them top of the fleet overnight.

Sunday saw sunny and cold conditions with shifty and patchy gusts and about 6 knots for the day. After a general recall, Freddie & Elliott started day two where they had left off on day one, taking a good win, unfortunately the black flag caught out a couple of boats. As did race 7, were we picked up a race win after a close finish with Bella & Anna. This left it all fairly tight with little in it for the top 5 boats. Race 8 saw Freya & Mille take a 3rd win of the weekend.

Over the weekend there was some great racing from all the competitors with Freddie & Elliott pipping Nick & Billy on count back to win the Championship and only 8 points separating the top 5 boats. Open Results: 1st Freddie Peters & Elliott Wells, 2nd Nick Robins & Billy Vennis-Ozanne, 3rd Pierce Harris & Alfie Cogger. 1st Girls went to Bella Fellows & Anna Sturrock with 1st Juniors Pierce Harris & Alfie Cogger. 1st Mixed team went to Iain Bird & Anna Rowe.
