GUL RS RACING CIRCUIT HAYLING ISLAND SC

GUL RS 800 Racing Circuit - Hayling Island Sailing Club, 14/15 July 2001 With a fantastic turnout of 60 boats, the GUL RS800 Racing Circuit event promised to be exciting, and with the wind varying between 10-25 knots on the first day, it did not disappoint. In the first race, a steady 15-18 knots was livened up by gusts of 25 knots and the token hailstorm. There was a mix of opinions about the absence of gates on the course, but there were considerably less incidents than at GUL RS Racing Circuit event at Weymouth two weeks ago and the spacer mark worked well (apart from the handful of boats who missed it out!). Positions were hard fought for with lots of capsizing and broken tiller extensions, although Hyde Sails, sailed by Richard Lovering and Richard Kent, seemed to be untouchable, ending the first day with three bullets. The conditions were such that everybody (except Hyde Sails) had a range of results; Ricky Tagg/ Stephen Greaves finished 2nd in the first race followed by 15.9. There was fierce competition between RWO, sailed by Neil Upton-Brown and Ian Lovering, and Michael Lennon/Craig Davies in the third race, with RWO crossing the line less than half a boat length in front of Lennon/Davies. Consistency paid off however, as Lennon/Davies finished the day in second place with 5.4.4. The partying started early, with Hayling Island Sailing Club laying on the usual excellent entertainment. With bright sunshine and light winds on Sunday morning, the big question was whether Lovering/Kent could hold onto their 10 point lead the morning after the night before! The GUL RS Racing Circuit leaders, Lee Sydenham and Anne Vaudry recovered from a slow start on Saturday, with 2.12.6. finishing 5th overall. The battle between RWO and Lennon/Davies was fought to the bitter end, but the event belonged to Hyde Sails, with 'Cheshire Cat' Lovering/Kent breaking their light wind jinx to produce a phenomenal 6 bullets. Richard Kent's only concern was that he didn't know how they did it! The Hayling Meeting was always anticipated to be a big event but the entries surpassed all expectations. At the prize-giving, Nick Peters commented that he would stand corrected if this were not a record turnout not only for the 800s but for any RS Class at a Racing Circuit event since the RS's were launched. The growth of the RS800 has been phenomenal, in 20 months the 800 has become one of the major UK classes, with some exciting racing anticipated at the up-coming GUL RS Nationals at Mounts Bay SC. The GUL RS800 Racing Circuit is now very finely balanced with one event left. Lee Sydenham/Anne Vaudrey improved their overall lead at Hayling but Richard Lovering, Neil Upton Brown and Michael Lennon could all catch them; all three will have to count their result at Halfway YC in Sept and hope that the Sydenham/Vaudrey team do not improve of one of their fifth places.
