ok open 2010

Ok Open 2010-Report

A small fleet of 8 OKs assembled at Burghfield (along with phantoms, blazes and solutions). The sun was shining and the breeze spot on.
Race 1 got underway along with the Solution fleet, which were annoyingly slow. With an island right in front of the start line Terry Curtis and Julian Burnham went right along with the rest of the fleet, clearly the correct way as Terry rounded first with Jules in tow and Deryck Lovegrove and Andy Holmes shortly after. Terry pulled ahead of Jules who both had a huge lead. Richard Burton eventually caught up after taking a mid race swim. Burton got into third but then was overtaken on the last beat by Derek.
Race 2 followed a delicious lunch. The OD decided for a change of course the line was port end biased which Burton and Terry nailed. With some different islands half way up the beat Terry rounded the windward mark first with Burton chasing hard and Jules not far behind. In the end Terry held his lead with Jules planing past Burton to take second, Deryck 4th and Holmes 5th.

Notably junior sailor Jack Arnell, borrowing his uncle (Chris Arnell)'s boat was going very fast and challenging for 4th and 5th all the way but lost out at the end.
Race 3 was the most competitive of the three with 4 different people in the lead. Burton and Jack got off to a great start at the starboard end of the line. The left side of the course was favoured with Burton and Terry dueling for the lead, but out of nowhere Deryck (who went as far right as he could) shot in to round first with Burton right behind and Terry nipping at their heels. On the reach Burton took the lead and then Terry had his go at the front. After misjudging the windward mark and parking on it, Jules caught up and took the lead. But Terry whittled it away again to take the lead. By this time Deryck was taking a break at the back of the fleet, with Roland Gadsby and Holmes fighting for 4th. On the last beat Terry lead Jules left and Burton went right. Which paid off: he passed Jules only to be pipped on the line again. Deryck regained his composure to finish 4th
Terry 1st, Jules 2nd, Burton 3rd, Deryck 4th, and Roland 5th.
A big thanks got to Deryck Lovegrove and Burghfeild sailing club for organising an excellent event, which was enjoyed by all.
