Ogston RS Aero Open - Derbyshire, UK

Write-Up

Ogston RS Aero Open – Ogston SC, Derbyshire, 28th September
 
Thanks to Nick Craven for his report;
 
The last event in the RS Aero UK Northern Circuit was held at fabulous Ogston Sailing Club in Derbyshire. Due to a forecast of high winds with big gusts the turn out was reduced, however, 10 enthusiastic sailors arrived ready to tackle the fruity conditions.
 
The first race was indeed windy with big gusts that challenged even the most experienced sailors with many capsizes and a couple of retirements. For Race 2 the wind dropped a little however it was very fluky and made for a challenging sail. Matt Thursfield won the first 2 races with Keith Escritt hot on his heels.
 
For Race 3 the wind spun around and became very light, Nigel Davis of Draycote SC, new to the northern circuit made all the right decisions and took the win. Matt showed how he loves the light wind by finishing last!
Race 4 was the best race of the day. The wind had picked up and was reasonably constant with a few smaller gusts. The fleet split into 2 groups with the front 5 pulling away and any one of the 5 could have taken the win. Keith prevailed and was first over the line. Matt came in 2nd to clinch the series with Nigel Davies 3rd overall.
 
A great event and thanks to Kent Martin for his assistance in arranging it and thanks to the Ogston team for a fantastic day in challenging conditions both on and off the water.
 
Next up for the UK fleet is the RS Aero UK Inland Championships at Rutland on 12/13th October which also doubles as the UK Ladies and Masters Champs and a few charter RS Aeros still remain available. Full details on UK RS Aero events are on the UK Events List.
