The RS Games 2022 - Days 5 to 7

by Lynn Billowes 29 Jul 2022 20:22 BST 21 July - 5 August 2022

There were 549 competitors on site at Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy for the RS Feva World Championship, the RS100, RS300 and RS600 National Championship and the RS Aero Youth World Championship. With all competitors flanked by an entourage of family, friends and supporters, the atmosphere in the RS Sailors Hub was positively buzzing.

Registration was a hive of activity, with sailors travelling from around the globe to be a part of the RS Games. With an uncharacteristically good forecast for British weather, sailors relished the breeze and sunshine that Weymouth had to offer.

The RS100, RS300 and RS600 Classes enjoyed four great days of racing, with a real mix of conditions.

Congratulations to Huw Powell, our new RS100 National Champion from Red Wharf Bay Sailing Club/ Netley Sailing Club, Paul Watson our new RS300 National Champion from Llanfairfechan Sailing Club and George Smith our new RS600 National Champion from Bough Beech Sailing Club/Medway Yacht Club.

The RS Feva World Championship stepped up a notch with the introduction of Gold, Silver and Bronze fleet, and the racing on the last day went down to the wire. Parents and coaches were desperately trying to calculate points and countbacks from the final day of racing to find out who was to be crowned World Champion. Huge congratulations to Joseph Jones & Charlie Howard, GBR 4102, from Burghfield Sailing Club, our new RS Feva World Champions.

The RS700 and RS800 sailors have begun registering for their National and European Championships, which kick off tomorrow. With a great mix of British and European sailors, it's set to be a truly international event.

Special thanks to our event partners; Rooster, Selden, Harken, Lifejacket, RS Sailing Store, Marksetbot, WPNSA, Digital Sailing, Kingfisher Yacht Ropes, Fernhurst Books, Noble Marine, Allen, Hyde Sails, Spinlock and 18 Words.
