RS200 Winter Championships at Grafham

The RS200 Winter Championships at Grafham saw an intimate group of 20 boats battling the cold and forecasted snow, to produce some great close racing. All 3 fleets (Gold, silver and Bronze) were there blowing out the cob webs of the winter, fighting for some early season results. James and Will Rusden from the Royal Lymmington YC took the title with three race wins from the six races. Second were Chris Catt and Ally Martin from Burghfield SC and third Edd Whitehead and Alice Kingsnorth from Parkstone Yacht Club. The next event in the Grand Prix series is at Northampton Sailing Club on the 13/14 April.
