Zhik UK 29er Nationals - Day 1
 
The first day of the Zhik 29er Nationals got off to a cracking start with champagne sailing at Royal Torbay Yacht Club. A shifty South Westerly blowing 10-16 knots greeted the 76 boats for the first two races of the qualifying series. 
 
Hannah Bristow and Emily Covell lead the Championships after day 1 with a near perfect score of 1,2 and leading the day in the Blue flight. Yellow flight was dominated by Nick Robins and Billy Venis-Ozane with a 1,3 to take 2nd overall.  Worlds bronze medalist Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling lie 3rd after 5,3 in Blue and George Tardrew / Freddie Simes hold 5th after a 2,7 . Consistency was hard to find in the competitive fleets with the shifty conditions. Other race winners included Patrick Croghan and Dom Lewis who took race 1 yellow  and Freya Black / Elliott Wells who won race 1 Blue.
 
Qualifying continues tomorrow with 4 races scheduled and a forecast of 10-15 knots from the NW. With another 18 races scheduled its early days with plenty of position changes likely before the split to Gold and Silver. 
 
 

 

Re 29er Nats.

If anyone wants to change entries or change helm/crew please tell Lisa as we need to sort all the registration docs and calculate the initial seedings. All of which takes considerable time.

Technically we can accept changes at the organisers discretion. Though after tonight we will be somewhat less inclined to say yes to changes as it creates extra work for the organisers.

Please do email Lisa with any changes ASAP. Thank you in advance.

42 British Sailors travelled to Medemblik for the 2016 World Championships racing in a fleet of 228 boats. The top 20 places comprised 15 different Nationalities showing how competitive the fleet has become with many returning older sailors swelling the entry.

Congratulations to Crispin Beaumont and Tom Darling who sailed an outstanding series to take the Bronze medal. They were also the 2nd Youth sailors overall. This was the first overall podium  for GBR in 8 years - we look forward to seeing GBR 3 in action on UK waters.

Congratulations also to Hannah Bristow and Emily Covell who took 4th all girls. Full results below.
