RS800 European Championships 2023 at Circolo Vela Torbole, Lake Garda, Italy - Day 3

by Phil Walker 31 May 22:22 BST 28 May - 2 June 2023

After a crazy hail storm the night before to further cool down the water and with many nursing sore heads from the crew vs helm dinner, there was only time for one race on the third day of the RS800 Europeans.

In typical Garda fashion, about 30 seconds after the start, 95% of the fleet were on port heading towards the cliffs on the right. Geoff Carveth led the charge with Phil Walker & John Mather, Tom Morris & Guy Fillmore, and Luke & Emma McEwen in hot pursuit.

Tommy Darling & Maria Stanley rolled the dice on the left but with some blistering speed somehow managed to not get buried as pretty sure the right hand side was working.

Over the course of two laps Tom & Guy's relentless pace earned them a well-deserved win, with Phil & John second, and Luke & Emma third.

The fleet is now looking forward to a big dinner a the club tonight and an early alarm tomorrow to race in the morning breeze.
