RS800 Spring Championship - Straight Six for McEwens

Luke and Emma McEwen started the 2017 season where they finished 2016 . . . Winners.

Six races and six wins for Luke and Emma McEwen at the RS800 Spring Championship at Rutland SC.

The water was cold, the wind was fresh, but it built to a solid F4 gusting F5 with flat water – just what the RS800 revels in.

Luke and Emma promptly showed the rest of us how it was done – winning every race by some distance.

The rest of us could only keep up for the first lap and then fight it out for 2nd place – which was shared around by four different boats.

But we had lots of really good close racing and lots of fast fun and that’s what counts. At least that’s what we tell ourselves while wondering what it takes to keep up.

Next meeting is in two weeks at Stokes Bay SC 8-9 April.
