Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January 2014 – New Olympic Series Part Two
by Chris Dando
The breeze was back on for the second weekend of the winter series over the 11th and 12th of January. On Saturday the fight at the front of the fleet was between Gareth and Kevin with the rest trying their best to keep these two honest. At the start of the first race Shin managed to catch himself round the bowspit of a RS Vision, but the two leaders had already got away before he managed to disentangle the two boats. At the start of the second race, the race team signaled an individual recall, and both Gareth and Kevin went back. However this still left one boat called over the line — Shin. Gareth and Kevin used their good speed in the conditions to again finish in first and second positions with Jordan scoring two third places. In the final race of the day, Kevin finally managed to get across the line to take a win from Gareth.
Sunday again saw a good wind from the north. Six boats made it to the line for the first race, but the second race saw both Charlie and Thiha suffer breakages to their tillers. The results followed the form book for all three races with Gareth winning from Shin and Chris to round off a great weekend of sailing.
