The Noble Marine Allen RS300 National Championship takes place at Dovey Yacht Club between 7th and 10th September.

There are 21 entries at the time of writing this, but there's still time for more RS300 sailors to throw their hats into the ring if and weekend only entry is available too! Enter here!

Here are the Runners and Riders:

Paul Watson
Last year's champion and local (ish) boy, Paul likes a bit of breeze and some waves so Aberdovey should suit him. Has recent fatherhood diverted his focus or given him a reason to try harder?

Dave Acres
Dave is a multiple national champion and master of the RS300. He was 3rd last year and rumoured to be responsible for our cruel handicap by sailing so well at his home club of Emsworth. The only question is whether his knees will last the week!

Pete Mackin
The current class chairman and proud owner of 'that yellow boat', Pete is looking to improve on his 4th from last year and has had a cracking season so far recently winning at Stokes Bay. He has been sharing his talents at our class coaching days which have been very well received. Has he kept enough tricks up his sleeve to win this year?

Harry McVicar
Harry was the highest ranking lake sailor last year, we know he's lightning fast upwind and he's now a seasoned CrossFit competitor. He's consistently top 5, could this be his year?

Liam Willis
Liam is an ex Aero9 national and world champion so he knows a fast way round a course. Expect to see him challenging at the top of the fleet.

Others to watch

  • Will Powell - New to the fleet but a talented ex ILCA racer
  • Mark Schürch - 49er, Int 14 & Int Moth Sailor from Europe

Team event
We have 3 clubs represented by 2 or more boats; Emsworth SC, Stokes Bay & Hykeham. Will Dave A be able to hold onto the trophy again?

Whoever comes out on top this is set to be a fantastic event in Aberdovey. We have great sponsors on-board in Noble Marine, Allen and Rooster so excellent prizes are on offer.

The only question is whether the bar staff at Dovey YC know what's coming!

See you there!

RS300 Noble Marine Allen Nationals at Dovey day 3
Starting as normal with 21 sailors staring hopefully at a millpond Day three started as normal, with 21 sailors staring hopefully at a millpond. Some hoped for wind, most for a day off. After much debate and deliberation, the fleet decided to go racing inside the estuary, braving the flooding tide. Posted on 10 Sep 2023
