2003 Eastern Areas at King George SC

The Mirror Eastern Area Championships took place over the weekend of 6th/7th September 2003. A good entry of nearly thirty boats had an interesting weekend of sailing.

Race1 - Race 1 was sailed in force 1-2 and was led to the first mark by Dan Jacobs and Harrison Reece (Starcross SC), closely followed by John and James Clemenson (Chipstead SC), third was Tom Robinson and Shaun Mason (Warsash). By the end of the first lap the Clemensons had established a good lead and held it to win the race. After a poor start, Robert Struckett and Tom Hodgkinson (Itchenor) pulled through to take second, third place went to the team of Jacobs/Reece.


Race 2 - Similar conditions prevailed in race 2 with a new team of Juliet and Richard Long (Plymouth YC) showing good boat handling, going on to win, very closely followed by Struckett/Hodgkinson and Robinson/Mason.In between race 2 and race 3 the rain came, the wind blew and everyone thought we were in for a good sail, however, after two general recalls the wind disappeared again.


Race 3 - This race was led from start to finish by Robinson/Mason closely followed by the Long Team and a new contender James Ellis and Carla Sheldon (Royal Plymouth and Corinthian YC) who finished third.


This left the championship wide open for Sunday. The forecast was for lots of wind which we were all looking forward to, however, Sunday dawned with bright sunshine and no wind! The race officer postponed the race until 12 but soon realised that it was going to be one of those days!! The wind failed to materialise and it was decided to abandon racing for the day.


This left Juliet and Richard Long 70222 as worthy champions.

Results 3 races, 2 to count.
