505 UK National Championship at Whitstable Yacht Club - Overall

by Harry Briddon 2 May 07:19 BST 26-29 April 2018

As the competitors assembled in the boat park on the final day, they were greeted by a strong North Easterly breeze, rain and cold temperatures.

The race officer made the decision to only run a single race, allow for a second discard.

The fleet launched into an 18 to 22 knot breeze and a huge sea for what was an excellent race. It was clear that the teams with the "larger" crews had an advantage with Quirk/Needham taking the win followed by Boite/Fountaine and Holt/Woelfel rounding out the podium.

This left Holt/Woelfel as the deserving winners as they continued their unbeaten streak. Boite/Fountaine were second and Batchelor/Pascoe third.

A huge thanks to all at Whitstable Yacht Club for their amazing hospitality and for providing the Race and Safety teams.

Another huge thanks must go out to H.A Briddon Ltd. who very generously sponsored the event and allowed for all the free beer!
