505 UK National Championship at Whitstable Yacht Club - Day 3

by Nathan Batchelor 28 Apr 2018 20:50 BST 26-29 April 2018

The start on Saturday was brought forward to allow for a dropping breeze during the afternoon. Three races were held in a westerly 6-10 knot wind. The overseas sailors seem to be showing the Brits how it's done with 3 teams in the top 4 overall.

Race 1 was a tussle from start to finish with Holt & Woelfel from the USA coming out on top over Quirk & Smith from Australia. Race 2 was won by Batchelor & Pascoe followed by Holt & Woelfel. Race 3 won by another overseas visitor - this time Boite & Fountaine from France.

Holt is the clear leader overall going into the final day of racing on Sunday. The forecast is looking breezy!
