Light winds for National 12's inaugural event at Pagham YC 25/4/07
This was the first time the National 12s have visited Pagham YC and the fleet of 12 boats was warmly welcomed by the club, bright sunshine and a light breeze.
The event was held jointly with the Larks who started first and indicated what the tide and wind were doing. Over five races Graham Camm and Zoe Ballantyne in Babel Fish battled for the lead all the way round the course with Tom Stewart and Liz Ross in Silverfin.
Silverfin and Babel Fish’s leads were challenged several times during the weekend. Antony and Jo Gifford in Fatso clinched second in race 1 aided by Silverfin being on course side at the start.
Gavin and Sabrina Willis spotted that the wind had swung to the right in the final race and established a substantial lead by the windward mark and went on to win race 5 with Jon Ibbotson and Charlotte Stewart in Monkey Business taking second.
