Rooster 420 Autumn Championship at Rutland Sailing Club

by Jennie Clark 22 Sep 2019 19:21 BST 21-22 September 2019

The weather wasn't particularly autumnal when the 420 fleet rolled up at Rutland SC for their Rooster sponsored Autumn Championships, with glorious sunshine and breeze across the lake promising some great sailing on Saturday.

'Team Stog' were in charge of racing and as might be expected they kept the racing to time and provided good courses to ensure a decent mix of upwind and downwind legs. Race 1 got under way promptly and was won in convincing style by Haydn Sewell and William Heathcote with Jamie Cook and Will Martin in 2nd place and new pairing Nick Evans and Ollie Meadowcroft in 3rd. Eleanor Keers and Faye Chatteron bounced back from an uncharacteristic 17th in race 1 to claim line honours in race 2, with Haydn and William 2nd and Nick and Ollie in 3rd.

Team Stog kept the turnover between races fast and race 3 saw Haydn and William once again first over the finish line, followed by Eleanor and Faye then Jamie and Will. Nick and Ollie claimed 4th to put their new partnership very much on the radar. A Port and Starboard incident in race 4 saw them retire from that race, but another new partnership came to the line first - Dylan McPherson and Jack Lewis were followed home by Haydn and William, then Ellie Driver and Rose Edmonds.

Sunday morning saw the weather change with torrential rain followed by a prolonged period of 'will it won't it' wind, which decided that it was not going to play ball. A lengthy AP eventually gave way to AP over A and an early prize-giving with prizes presented by Ian Walker.
