RS Vareo Racing Circuit Weston SC

  • RS Vareo at 2016 Dinghy Show
Weston Sailing Club was the venue for the latest event in the RSVareo circuit on the 15th and 16th August. Winds were a very pleasant force 2 to 3 from the west. The first race saw Nigel Tinkler
take a useful lead but he was slowly reeled in by Mark Williams who had a bit more speed downwind. Final run to the finish saw Williams 1st, Tinkler 2nd and  Dave Smith 3rd.  The second race provided
a bit more wind with the race hotly contested between Tinkler, Williams and Andrew Wilson. These three fought it out at the front with a bit of a gap between them and the chasing pack. It finished
with Williams taking another bullet, Wilson 2nd and Tinkler 3rd.
Last race on Saturday saw Wilson take an early lead but he was chased down by Williams and
Tinkler. On 2nd run all three hit the leeward mark together. Williams and Wilson went right and
Tinkler went left. A shift in the wind resulted in a big gain to the left. Final run in and Tinkler had a commanding lead and promptly capsized 100 yds from the line. He managed to right the boat as Williams drew level with him. A nail biting reach to the finish saw Tinkler 1st, Williams 2nd and
Wilson 3rd.

Sunday provided near perfect conditions with plenty of sun. The pattern was set with Williams and Wilson battling it out at the front. Wilson 1st, Williams 2nd and Ken Miles 3rd.  Race 5 again saw Wilson take a useful lead which he maintained. Williams was 2nd and Martin Peters giving Tinkler something to think about. Peters maintained a control on the run to finish 3rd. Last race of the event and it was the decider between Williams and Wilson and the likelihood was that they would sail each other down the fleet. On the start they closely covered one another with the result that Tinkler took what looked like a good lead. A massive wind shift resulted in Wilson who had purposely sailed to the left approach the windward buoy with a substantial lead. Although Williams closed him down a bit it was not enough with Andrew taking 1st and the event. Mark 2nd and Nigel 3rd. A good weekend well run by the race committee who were prompt and efficient which makes all the difference. Next on the calendar is the Nationals at Netley on the 11th, 12th and 13th of September.
