Gul Scorpion National Championship at Llandudno Sailing Club - Overall

by Steve Walker 1 Aug 22:08 BST 27 July - 3 August 2019

The last day of the 59th Scorpion Championship had perfect sun and wind to enable the whole fleet to enjoy a superb setting for the finale.

Shifty wind over the Great Orme had the race team trying to guess the wind shifts and they managed to get two races completed by moving marks to suit to wind direction during the races.

Race 9: 1st Pete Gray/Richard Pepperdine, 2nd Nigel Potter/Simon Hibbert, 3rd Sam Barker/Cara Jones
Race 10: 1st Tom Gillard/Rachael Rhodes, 2nd Pete Gray/Richard Pepperdine, 3rd Nigel Potter/Simon Hibbert

Other Results:

Junior Helm: 1st Chole Willars, 2nd Jake Willars
Junior Crew: 1st Cara Jones, 2nd Ollie Fellows, 3rd George Fellows, 4th James Bishop, 5th John Tailby, 6th Emily Green, 7th Bradley Seaton
Youth combo: 1st Chloe Willars/John Tailby 2nd Jake Willars/Bradley Seaton
Veteran Helm: Steve Walker
Veteran Crew: Jerry Hannabuss

The evening has the fancy dress themed 'L' being arranged with a prize giving set for Friday morning at 10am.

Thank you to Llandudno Sailing Club and the whole race team for hosting the 59th Scorpion National Championships. First class both on and off the water.
