K6 National Championships - An away day at WPNSA

Dave Hall, Ellie Burrows and Paul Constable took the K6 National title on countback after weather conditions reduced the event to one day.

The efficient race team at WPNSA turned around five 40-minute race in quick succession on the Saturday.

The racing was tight and one mistake such as a broach or bad hoist quickly meant a loss of places.

Mistakes were aplenty with Lawrence and Luka Crispin missing the finishing mark, Dave Hall’s team broaching just before the finish line and Neil Fulcher’s team twisting and dragging their spinnaker just to mention a few.

At the end of the day a tired but happy fleet returned with Dave Hall’s team tying for first with Lawrence and Luka Crispin.

And that unfortunately was how it ended. With the wind building even before the new start time on Sunday it was decided that there would be no further sailing.
