Jane and Jeremy beating

Europe Nationals at WPNSA

Last weekend saw the Ex-Olympic class International Europe’s descend on Weymouth for their National Championships. Of the 23 boats that entered, three came from Burghfield with Jane Stevens competing in her second nations for the class whilst for Jeremy Carey and George Rowland (normally seen at Burghfield together in a National Twelve)it was their first time.

Saturday saw three races set, but with light and variable winds it was a while before the first got underway. Familiar names to the Europe fleet competed closely for the top spots but it was with great delight that George found herself in Sixth place in the second race. Race three saw Jane taking a very creditable ninth place beating both of the other Burghfield boats with her new sail. A sea mist made finding the course interesting at times and the Race officer’s pre-event advice that it was easy to see a transit from any direction when sailing in Portland harbour was taken with a large pinch of salt! As Sunday dawned the wind filled in to a F 2-3 and made for some more interesting sailing on the largely windward leeward biased Trapezoid /sausage course. Jeremy got a peach of a start (his one and only!) and was third round the first windward mark, but then spent the rest of the race in defensive mode as the faster and better equipped boats snapped at his transom. By the end of the race he had only dropped three further places, taking a sixth, his only top ten position of the weekend. George managed a ninth in the same race which put her in good stead on the leader board.

Overall the club results were George Rowland 9th; Jeremy Carey 11th, and Jane Stevens 17th. An excellent weekend was had by all and many thanks should go to the Europe Association for organising it and on behalf of Jeremy and George, to Andy at Mayday for the loan of his fantastic double stacker road base with box which made the trip nice and easy!

Welcome to the Slow Handicap Fleet

The Slow Handicap fleet combines an interesting and varied mix of dinghy, which include the Topper, Solo, Streaker, Comet, Pico, Lightning and Europe to name but a few. They are sailed by an equally varied mix of enthusiastic members, from the novice to the very experienced and from the very young to those who are not as athletic as they were in the past.

The fleet is very friendly and enjoys healthy competitive racing on Sundays. The different types of dinghy make the racing interesting and fun. There is always someone around to provide support and guidance.

A look at the past results tables will show how varied the fleet is and has good support throughout the year.

If you enjoy sailing and the competition of racing, but maybe not interested in the more technical performance classes, then the slow handicap has a lot to offer.
