Fleetwood Open Weekend 2021

Up to 6 boats turned up for this Vane A-Class Open weekend. Traditionally this event is the shake down race for the A-Class Championship, to be held this year at Gosport in 3 weeks time. On the Saturday, the skippers were racing for the Jack Roberts Trophy. Numerous designs were on show plus some high profile skippers, who swapped their transmitters for poles. In the end Saturday's winner was Zak Roberts, who managed to not drop any points in the second part of the day's racing to claim top spot.

On Sunday, skippers competed for the Northern District Championships. The weather conditions were not as favourable, because the light and variable southerly winds made it difficult, for the skippers to set on a suitable trim. In the end the wind conditions forced the race officer, Derek Priestley to finish the event early with still a round of sailing to go. Congratulations to Chris Harris for winning the Northern District Vane A-Class Championship. In joint 2nd place was Zak Roberts and Dave Geldard. 

Many thanks to all competitors and Derek Priestley for running this weekend’s regatta’s, which was conducted in a safe manner and within Covid restrictions.
