RYA Champion of Champions event at East Lothian YC – 20/21 Oct

This above event took place over the weekend of 20/21 October and several Forth Boats qualified and were invited to take part.  Report by Liz Tulloch

“Congratulations go to Ronnie and Torr Millar of Royal Forth who took part in the RYA Champion of Champions event last weekend, hosted by East Lothian Yacht Club.

This is an ‘invitation only ‘ series, for Class Champion or Travellers Champions, sponsored this year by RYA Scotland, Insurance for dinghies, Caledonia Sailing, Yachting Life, Belhaven Brewery and www.fotoboat.com

Four races were sailed off North Berwick in light winds and Paul Hignett’s Moth set the pace winning Race 1.

In the 3 races that followed, the Wayfarer, sailed by Chris Owen and Sam McNamara established a very solid lead. The Millars, however, were never out of touch.  They and Fiona Rigg’s RS200  were not to be taken lightly.

The Millars finished 2nd overall at the end of the day after four races.

There was no racing on the Sunday due to lack of wind.  Race Officer, Jim Sinclair, had wisely provided for this by ensuring that Saturday’s 4 races validated the event, allowing one discard.
