Ripon SC Solo Open Well Received

The Ripon Sailing Club hosted its first solo open had 25 entries that included 10 boats from different sailing clubs. The forecast was very bad for the event and as predicted there were rains. One thing that was noticeable at the event was the wind conditions as it was better than what was predicted. The rains though arrived early.

The first race got the south easterly winds, but it was very light. There was a short opening beats possible in the morning due to poor wind strength and direction. Everyone wanted to reach the port end once the wind shifts changed. A few boats were not OCS and thereby it resulted in a genial recall. The re-start saw one boat stay clear of the pack.

There was no chance for any mayhem during the race as no one was going at a fast pace – it was more like a Bareboat Charter in Dubrovnik, pootling around the Croatian coast! The fleet also was spread out before it reached the first windward mark. The strength of the winds really picked up after the lunch break. The rains did hamper the sailors as it dripped down inside their wet suits and spray tops. There were two more races conducted in a similar condition and it was the upwind/downwind course. (more…)

There are stars who are born from competitions in sailing like Youth Sailing World Championships or Sailing World Cup, but when they qualify for the Olympics and are able to win, that are when they come of age.
