RS Aero UK River Championships - Avon SC, Gloucester, UK

Write-Up

RS Aero UK River Championships - Avon Sailing Club, Gloucestershire. 7th September 2019
Thanks to Antony Lynall for his report
 
Light winds and fair weather were the order of the day and we had a total of 23 RS Aero’s competing on the River Severn for the 4th RS Aero UK River Championships. Class racing was held with fourteen sailors opting for the RS Aero 9 rig and nine choosing the RS Aero 7. The 16 visitors came from as far afield as Fowey and were all greeted with teas, coffee and a bacon roll on arrival.
 
Race 1
Racing got cleanly under way with the RS Aero 9’s in the light Northerly breeze with the windward mark being about a mile up-river. David Lynall from Bowmoor SC got off to a good start and managed to keep in the front for the whole race. Charlie Sansom and Chris Hatton, also from Bowmoor followed into 2nd & 3rd place. Matt Banbrook from Bowmoor finished strongly with a 4th place.
 
In the RS Aero 7 fleet, it was a similar story, with Ellie Craig from Draycote Water keeping the lead throughout, closely followed by Jacob Miller and Fi Lucas from Avon Sailing Club.
 
Race 2 started after lunch and, the RS Aero 9 fleet were all a little keen to get away but only did so after 2 general recalls and the black flag. The RS Aero 7 fleet went off first after the 9’s were relegated to the back of the start queue and Ellie Craig, Jacob Miller & Fi Lucas all finished in the same 1,2,3 positions.
 
In the 9 fleet, David Lynall again got away but this time was being chased closely by Chris Hatton. Race 2 ended with Lynall in front, Hatton 2nd and Sansom in 3rd.
 
Race 3 got away cleanly in both fleets but the wind had dropped to very light so Race Officer Peter Keighley set a much shorter course. This time, Charlie Sansom took the lead in the 9 fleet and was closely followed by Al Keck from Bowmoor with Hatton coming in 3rd and Lynall 4th.
 
In the 7 fleet, this time Jacob Miller got ahead & managed to keep the lead with Craig & Lucas coming in 2nd & 3rd.
 
Thanks to ROOSTER for their support in providing a selection of their race gloves for all the winners and to Avon SC for hosting another excellent day out at their lovely spot on the River Severn with many of the visitors staying over and camping on site with a barbecue and disco into the early hours!
