Volvo Noble Marine RS300 National Championships at Porthpean SC - Day 2

by Steve Bolland 14 Sep 2019 17:31 BST

After the proper man's wind of day 1, the second day of the Volvo Noble Marine RS300 Nationals was more to the liking of those who prefer sitting scrunched up in the bottom of the boat.

We were treated to seven hours of this as we chased the wind round the bay until it eventually settled enough to get some races in. I would like to say that we enjoyed three races but that would be stretching it a bit.

Winner of the day was Steve Cockerill who had two race wins in his scoreline today. Also going well was Pete Mackin in what is possibly the brightest boat ever built. He had two second places and was within an ace of winning the last one.

Harry McVicar also moved up the leader board with a couple of countable results. Others also had good days but I've forgotten who they are. Sorry about that. Anyway, the top four position are separated by only six points so it's tight at the top.

The evening was spent relaxing at Porthpean Sailing Club, enjoying sponsor Geeta's Premium Mango Chutney, with a curry, washed down with plenty of Doom Bar and a few spiced rums on the boom of doom.
