In the RS Aero 7s Jack Miller (Felpham) demonstrated his steadily improving form again and after a slow start knocked home 3 bullets in races 3, 4 and 5 to top the ovenight ranking. Matt Banbrook (Bowmoor) held a very respectable 2nd position with Leopoldo Sirolli (Toganzzi MV, Italy) close behind in 3rd!
On Saturday evening the weary sailors enjoyed a hearty three course dinner in the Yacht Club's lovely dinning room, providing an opportunity to recover and meet their fellow competitors from other regions around the UK.
As feared the gales came in with a venengance on Sunday morning and soon after 09:00 it was an obvious call to abandon racing for the day, leaving Saturday's five races to produce the final result. It was a credit to RTYC's starting lines, the fleet's discipline and their staying power over five windy races there were no letter scores on the scoresheet at all! That is 140 race finishes with no OCSs or DNFs, well done everyone!
Many thanks to Royal Torbay YC for being welcoming hosts again and to Rooster for their continued support with a fine spread of prizes.
Next up for the UK's young RS Aero sailors is the last open meeting of the season, the Bowmoor Bubble on 27th November. The RS Aero UK Youth Training programme enables the young sailors to check in with their friends and coaches once a month through the winter and the excitement of the large Selden SailJuice Winter Series events puts it all to the test!
