West Country Boat Repairs 2000 class Millennium Series at Thorney Island Sailing Club

by Mark Foley 10 Aug 11:50 BST 16-17 July 2022

West Country Boat Repairs' 2000 Class Millennium Series event 5 of 2022 took place in sparkling conditions at Thorney Island SC, Chichester Harbour on 16th and 17th July.

Thorney Island Fleet Captain Jonathan Dannatt organised another brilliant event that attracted an amazing 29 entries.

Fifth place Chris and Gill Jordan travelled from Norwich and report: "Saturday: 8-10 knots, 3 races beating against the tide, and one race beating with the tide. Despite hundreds of other boats on the water, there seemed enough space for us!

"Sunday: 10 knots and rising to 12-14, only a short course as we were beating across the channel. I think we did 5 or 6 laps per race - very intense and nip and tuck racing, with 40 degree shifts to contend with as well! Very well organised and run, and some great cakes on Sunday afternoon!"

Results:

1st: Rob and Sarah Burridge
2nd: Simon and Katie Horsfield
3rd: Pete Vincent and Naomi Pound
