Noble Marine Musto Skiff UK National Championships at Largs Sailing Club - Day 2

by Ben Schooling 7 Sep 05:52 BST 5-8 September 2019

The fleet woke nursing aches and pains to a bright morning and an appealing 12kts. As the first boats launched the rain squall arrived right on cue and we settled in for another challenging day!

Race 4 got under way in a gusty 15-24kts Westerly with a similar race course to yesterday across the Largs channel. Ian Turnbull rounded first but got stuck in a hole on the run leaving the door open for Dan Trotter who gybed set into a mega gust. Those who hooked the gusts prospered well with Turnbull dropping to 10th by the leeward gate. The leading Trotter then extended round the next couple of laps but binned it at the final gate before the finish letting Alastair Conn through for the bullet. A quick recovering Trotter secured second with an on form Jamie Hilton 3rd.

Race 5 and the breeze had picked up a notch with mean wind of 23kts and gusts approaching 30. Jono Shelley revelled in the conditions and had a healthy lead by the windward. Weighed down with a Gold Medal in Japan, Team GBR Pro 49er sailor Fynn Sterrit was able to swing it down into second but both he and Shelley swam on the second run handing the initiative to Hilton who lead through the leeward gate and up the final beat. The downwind ride again proved the difference where only Ian Turnbull was able to keep it upright in another monster squall taking four places and the bullet down the final run. Hilton righted quickest for 2nd second with Vincent in 3rd.

Thank goodness George Hand isn't here!
