RS300 2017 Inland Championship - Part 2

Steve Bolland of Bristol Corinthian YC won four of the six races completed to claim the RS300 2017 Inland Championship, originally scheduled for last October.

The October event was postponed due to the onset of Storm Brian, so it was helpfully decided to re-run it in conditions almost as windy as last autumn and much, much colder.

At the end of an eventful day 1 Harry McVicar (2,2,2) was the overnight leader, building a decent series by dint of sailing fast and not falling in.

Day 2 opened with gusts into the high twenties and a sub-zero wind chill so it was unsurprising there was a reluctance to head out early, with most of the fleet arriving at the start area pretty much as the warning gun sounded.

Bolland set about winning the championship with three back to back wins, while Paul Watson of Bowmore SC survived with a 2, 3, 2 to take second place overall, and Pete Ellis of Stewartby SC claimed third overall.

If it was cold for the competitors, spare a thought for the committee and rescue boat crews who did sterling work all weekend.

They were last seen under the hot showers with their drysuits still on, although that could just be a Stewartby thing. Thanks anyway.
