Racing starts on 7th September, but in the meantime, check out our Runners and Riders!
We have 21 entries at the time of writing this, but there’s still time to throw your hat into the ring if you fancy it and weekend only entry is available too!
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 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!
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 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 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
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!
