Astral Azure 2000 Class National Championship at Brixham Yacht Club - Overall

by Mark Foley 21 Aug 18:48 BST 16-21 August 2020

No covid-safe sailing has been possible yesterday or today due to Storm Ellen.

Under normal circumstances sailing might have been run yesterday (Thursday) for the more experienced elements of the fleet, however due to the revised risk assessments policy that the Class Association and Brixham YC (under RYA guidance) adopted in view of Covid-19, the upper wind speed limit was lower, and was exceeded yesterday. On Friday the usual 25 MPH limit would have been blown away by Ellen.

Thus Tuesday evening's results are final! Congratulations to Sarah and Rob Burridge the 2020 champions. Second in their first Nationals fellow Weir Wood SC sailors Paul Cullen and Georgia Booth, and third Simon Horsfield and Katie Burridge.

Overall Results:

1st Youth: Johnny Sargent
1st Junior Family Fleet: Johnny Sargent and Matt Sargent
1st Silver Fleet: Matt Wright and Alex Pepper
