With just two weeks until the Noble Marine RS600 Nationals hosted by Brixham Yacht Club, Class Chair George Smith, takes a look at the runners and riders for the event.

Ian 'Monti' Montague AKA the former chairman: He has one of the new boats which should be fast but has been a bit short on training due to his new committee role at Stone. Fourth at the Stone nationals in his previous boat.

Jamie Mawson: Another new boat in the hands of a former winner albeit a few years ago now. Always present at the front of the fleet and usually fast across the conditions and always chased hard by the Notts county pack. Will current mast issues slow him down or will this be Jamie's year again?

Ian Marshall AKA Spiderman: Another former winner and class stalwart with one of the few remaining angel masts. Prefers the lighter breeze these days but more than capable of winning races and going fast.

Mike Iszatt AKA Mr Silverhook: There is no missing Mike on the race course, a bright yellow mast and a bright yellow mainsheet. Usually found pointing high upwind no matter what, very quick in the lighter breeze and not slow in the breezy stuff. Always there and always pushing towards the front, a very good showing at the recent inlands.

George Smith: Current inland champion and class chairman. Lots of time on the water recently seems to be paying off with wins and Lee on the Solent and the Inlands at Grafham. Has been on the bottom step of the podium twice and would like to take a step of two further up! Likes it breezy and fast once trapezing but sat on the foredeck isn't his forte.

Chris Haslam: The fastest of the Haslam family three. Lightning fast when it is light and always seems to be flat wiring! Has won races before and is very capable. Can occasionally fall over (can't we all) when under pressure.

Alex Piggot: Was going fast at the inlands but had a few boat failures which has prompted a pre-nationals boat prep session. Maybe just a step ahead of the other Notts County boys that are chasing Jamie, could be something to do with not wearing himself out in the front of a Scorpion!?. Easy to spot in the light blue boat and often somewhere near the front.

A few new names this year on the entry sheet with gold silver and bronze fleet there will no doubt be battles fought throughout.

Sailors are reminded to sign up to coaching on the Wednesday to shake off any last-minute rust and support the club by booking meals in advance.
