On the second day of the HARKEN Rutland Grand Prix, good steady strong winds allowed four back-to-back races to be completed in less than four hours.

Sailors launched on time despite having a great time the night before at the 29er Christmas Party; they all enjoyed dancing and singing after a great meal!

Henry Jameson/Louis Johnson (2816) had an amazing day getting four bullets and dominating the Grand Prix. Earlier in the day they showed that besides great sailors they are team players helping some other competitors on the slip way with boats to launch in time for racing. Tom Storey/ Pierce Harris (2828) had a consistent day demonstrating their potential in strong winds and finishing second overall.

Charlotte Ormerod/Jess Jobsob (2849) sailed very well securing pole position in girls once more and third overall. Athena Vogiatzi/Maddie Wylie (2507) got the only black flag of the day in the first race making the competition interesting, but securing by the end of play second position in girls and fourth overall sharing the same points with Sam Cooper/Simon Hall (2880).

Ewan Luke/Zac Blomeley (2826) finished sixth overall. Sian Talbot/Madeleine Bristow (2292) secured third for girls and first Juniors; Aled Llewellyn-Jones/Ben Willet (2045) and Sam Jones/Jake Atkins (2700) managed second and third junior positions, respectively.

Great performance by Ben Batchelor/Lucy Hewitson (2514) winning the mixed group; Ishbel Zuurmond/Archie Stokes (2879) finished second and Oliver Smoult/Tiegan Pearce (2118) secured third.

Lots of less inexperienced sailors did really well to get around the racecourse in such gusty conditions. The race committee did a great job on both days ensuring fair play to all competitors. Many thanks to the competitors and their parents for coming to the event and the organizers at Rutland Sailing Club for two great days of sailing.
