Squib National Championship at Royal Torbay Yacht Club - Overall

Day sponsor - Rondar boats

The 51st Squib National Championship race 6 for the Waldringfield Trophy was sailed in a repeat of the champagne conditions experienced yesterday but with less wind and a much increased swell. Some of the waves were huge and breaking. After a false U flag start, Race officer Bill Butcher, resorted to Black Flag and the race got under way with only two boats OCS.

Unfortunately these were both contenders for the championship. Last year' winners Stu Rix and Steve-Warren-Smith and Jono Brown crewed by Chris Dunn who had already two first places earlier in the week. Helmut Hydeing, Nigel and Jack Grogan from Royal Corinthian YC, only required a top ten place to win the championship.

At the first mark it was Caridad Bach (132), Alan Johnson and Dave Garlick from SCYC who led the field by a considerable margin which they extended until the finish. The big seas and lighter breeze made place changing inevitable and there were many large gains and losses.

Consistency paid off and Grayling(23), Richard Robinson and Mark Thompson, also from SCYC, were second closely followed by Spoof(811), Micky Wright crewed by Alex Porteous from RCYC.

Silver Fleet was won by Nemesis (806), Raymond Apthorp and Ian Brand from RBCYC.

Bronze fleet winners were Jill Fleming and Vincent Delaney in Perfection (44).

51st Anniversary place was taken by Eclipse(227), sailed by Georgia Grice and Mark Briggs from Portsmouth.

The Grogans fourth place in Race 6 ensured their Championship victory by a healthy 16 point margin. Second place overall went to Grayling (23), Richard Robinson and Mark Thompson.

Brimstone(73), Bryan and Jenny Riley from WOBYC, were third overall made possible by an amazing last race in which they pulled up from 30th to fifth to beat RicO'Shea by one point.

Overall Silver fleet winners were Richard Smith and Jamie Freeman sailing Flame (802)

Overall Bronze fleet winners were Jill Fleming and Vincent Delaney in Perfection (44).

Overall 51st Anniversary place was taken by Cheap Thrill (384), sailed by Chris Agar and Lauren Bates from RCYC.

Many thanks to Royal Torbay YC for organising such a good regatta. The Squib fleet will surely want to return in the future.
