Fat Face RS VAREO OPEN WEYMOUTH SAILING ACADEMY 2-3 JULY Twelve competitors were greeted by a perfect Force 4-5 breeze which allowed exhilarating off wind sailing with the Vareos revelling in the conditions. Saturday was dominated by Richard Kemp-Salt who had the best upwind speed in the fleet and won all three races convincingly. Mark Williams couldn't hold Richard upwind but had good downwind speed and scored three seconds. Nigel Tinkler, David Fewings and Nick Crickmore battled out for the other top five places. The lighter weight helms struggled in demanding sailing conditions however the whole fleet came ashore very tired but elated. Sunday dawned brighter with a light breeze. The first race turned the overnight predictions of the top three places on its head with Richard dropping to tenth and Mark only managing a fourth. Light wind maestro Chris Froehlich won the race with Nigel second and Paul Craft third. The wind increased to Force 2-3 for Race 5 and Nigel posted a bullet with Mark stealing a second at the last mark. Paul posted another third. Richard now needed a win to get into the top two positions and reached the windward mark first closely followed by Mark and the rest of the fleet. He then hoisted his kite for the reach to the wing mark but the leg was far too tight and he was jumped by half the fleet. In the end Mark comfortably won the race with Paul Craft finishing off a good day with a second; Chris was third. The Merit Prize was won by Ken Miles for being brave enough to attend his first Open even though he had only sailed the Vareo 4 times.
