Datchet Water Sailing Club ran a well organised regatta for the 9ers, B14s and Musto Skiffs this weekend.
In the 49er fleet Paul Brotherton and Mark Asquith reminded the fleet of their skills in the shifty and changeable conditions to win the event from Chris Draper and Simon Hiscocks. It was a National Ranking event for the 49ers and the quality of the fleet was world standard.
The 29ers had the largest fleet and it also was a qualifier for grants and places in the Youth Squad. The new pairing of David Evans and Rick Peacock just took first place from the team of Bernard and Andrew Gammon.
In the first ever 59er open event, David and Ann Gates from the home club managed to stay consistent enough to just beat David and Joanna McCrea.
It was Musto Skiff national champion Richard Stenhouse who once again proved that no matter what the conditions he is the one to beat. Pushed by James McIntosh, Stenhouse still managed to be in the right place when it mattered to win overall.
Dave Hayes and Sean Dwyer continued their winning streak in the B14s to take the overall prize.
