Keyhaven Yacht Club Open Regatta Sponsored by Harken.
The 2 day regatta was diminished to 1 day due to very windy conditions on Saturday 22nd June.
The wind on Sunday was still averaging 25 knots when Race Officer Robin Dent decided the event would go ahead. Fourteen boats took to the water with 11 in the fast fleet consisting of 2 Finns , 9 Lasers and an RS Feva helmed by juniors Evie Bradley and Aimee Harper.
The slow fleet consisted of 3 boats helmed and crewed by brave Juniors.
Robin set a triangular course which gave some very fast reaching enjoyed by all and also some spectacular capsizes. There were 3 back-to-back races with very close finishing times in all 3 races.
The final honours in the fast fleet went to David Ellis in a Laser Radial followed by Simon Moss in a Finn second place and Neil Stevenson in another Laser Radial third place.
Special prizes were awarded to Evie and Aimee for their determination and excellent sailing in the fast fleet.
The slow fleet winner was Alfie Dowson-McGill in an Optomist followed by Henry Harris and Louise Giron in a Laser Pico.
Special thanks to the competent safety boat crews who were kept busy and ensured everyone returned safely. Finally many thanks to Harken for sponsoring this event and providing some excellent prizes.
