The RS200 Nationals has had a massive start and we are only one day in! Registration was followed by a hugely well attended beach and quayside clean. Such enthusiasm from this young fleet to rid our shores of plastic.

Champagne sailing greeted the 104 boats with sunshine and 15-20 knot. Bill Butcher, PRO, set 2 excellent races. The very exciting gates starts went ahead without mishap. Both races were a games of snakes and ladders with massive gusts and shifts ensuring no-one could relax. Multiple National Champion James Peters, with super crew Maddy Andersen, showed the way to win both races.

See videos from Day 1 gate starts on Facebook here, with thanks to Adrian Peach.

208 exhausted crews found the energy to have a fabulous night. A Q&A session from out top sailors and Judge helped spread excellent tips thought out the fleet. The delightful Duckhams Dress was awarded to Tommy Darling who despite capsizing whilst leading second race went on to stand on his sister Charlie whilst righting the boat!

Syd Mclean and Morgan Peach hosted the buddy quiz which had a distinct maritime theme. Aptly names Buddy Team Morecambe and Wise took first place. Royal Torbay Yacht Club were on fine form with an excellent curry and happy hour.

All in all a fabulous start.
