Eastbourne lived up to its reputation during the weekend of 21-22 July. A total of 50 boats were greeted on Saturday morning with a fresh southerly breeze and the appropriate waves.
Three races were held on Saturday which gave some spectacular sailing and swimming conditions. It also brought a lot of retirements which made a significant dent in to results sheet at the end of the weekend.
Sunday brought with it a sunny day and a 10 knot wind. Once again three races were held with the emphasis on racing and tactics rather than boat-handling.
Paul Brotherton and Simon Hiscock managed to hold off Alistair Richardson and Peter Greenhalgh to win in the 49ers, while David Hayes and Sean Dwyer excelled in the big waves and wind on Saturday to take the B14s. Jonathan Frazer and Jonathan Clegg had a close run with Caroline Martin and Leigh Albrecht all weekend. Jim Baldwin proved that practice really pays and won all but one of the races in the Musto Skiff.
