Noble Marine Allen RS600 National Championships at Brixham Yacht Club - Day 2

by Ian Montague & George Smith 11 Sep 2021 23:42 BST 9-12 September 2021

Day 2 of the Noble Marine Allen RS600 Nationals dawned rather damp and overcast but we had a good forecast and left the slipway with 3 races scheduled.

The wind had headed round to the west and increased slightly from the previous day giving some great 600 conditions in the 15 to 18 knot winds. With the shift to the west the breeze was now off the land giving generally a flatter sea state to the previous day.

The first race followed a very similar pattern to day one with George Smith showing the fleet the way round with Jamie Mawson always in close contention to finish in second.

The second race saw a perfect port end flyer by Ian Montague to lead at the first mark by some distance. George, again showing his great upwind speed pulled his way through to take the lead and win and Ian second.

Race 3 got under way in much the same conditions, with very close race between the top 4 of Jamie, Mike Iszatt, Chris Haslam and George, with this being the finishing order.

Notable mention must go to Jamie Watson who drove to Plymouth (twice!) in search of rudder fittings having broken a pintle the day before. He managed to just make it out in time for the second race and go on to get the better of his brother too.

The Brixham race team are doing a great job setting excellent courses of just the right length and angles. Again Brixham pulled out all the stops with help on the slipway followed by cakes and donuts handed out to the competitors. Thanks to all.

The evening do was bangers and mash followed by 'hog racing' which was nothing if not entertaining! The daily rooster prize winners were Jamie Mawson in the gold fleet, Jon Heissig in Silver and Paul Patrick in bronze.

We are now just over half way through the racing with everything still to play for. The forecast for Saturday looks slightly more moderate and with four races based on a light wind outlook for Sunday. Let's hope the next two days are as good as the first two.
