T15 North Zone - Inter-Club Event 3, 14th July

Unread postby DavidD » Mon Jul 15, 2013 4:11 pm

Our third event of the year took sailors to Kielder Water Sailing Club who were acting as competition hosts for the first time in their very short T15 history. Five clubs were represented and those travelling from the south of the Zone e.g. Wakefield and North Lincs had decided to make a weekend of it and travel up on the Saturday for some free sailing and last minute practice.
In all 35 competitors spread across the 4 sail size classes registered to compete. The 12 sailors entered in the 3.5m class were split from the 4.5m, 5.8m & 6.8m classes and sailed an out and back course across the wind. The remaining 3 classes moved out to the open water and tackled a downwind M course in the morning with an upwind leg added in the afternoon. With the wind steadily freshening throughout the day, the sunshine maintaining temperatures at 20 degrees + and spectators taking to their sun-loungers on the shore the whole event had a very Mediterranean feel.
Organisation at club level was superb with 4 RIBS providing on-water support throughout the day. With some very close racing in all of the fleets Pugneys Pirates took the Team prize making it 3 wins out of 3 and they will now go forward to represent the Zone at the National T15 Champions Cup in October. Home team Kielder Kestrels took second place and are doing really well in their first year of inter-club racing.
All in all a great event and we take a short break before the final event in Wakefield in September.
