Fat Face RS Racing Circuit Queen Mary SC

  • RS Vareo at 2016 Dinghy Show
Sixteen boats arrived at QMSC looking forward to the penultimate event in the Fat Face Series. The sky was overcast and the wind a very variable Force 3. Having overcome the problems of launching down the steep sides of the reservoir by some admirable teamwork, it was each man for himself. In the first race, the wind managed to outwit the Race Officer (for the only time) by backing 30 degrees just 3 minutes before the start and this led to something of a procession. Races 2 and 3 were good, close races with Christopher Froehlich picking his moment to gybe to perfection ..and falling in! At the end of the day, Martin Barrett from Craven Sailing Club was in the driving seat with three firsts. Sunday was a day of very light and shifty winds and the pre-event favourite, Tim Greenwood, won Races 4 and 5 by a large margin with a great deal of place changing behind him as everyone either won or lost ground in the shifts, gusts and lulls. Race 6 saw a newcomer to the front of the fleet, Matt Moore who had made steady progress from 11th in Race 2 to win in Race 6 and thus qualify for the Merit Prize for the most improved helm. 1st Martin Barrett (Craven Sailing Club) 2nd Paul Craft (Teignmouth Sailing Club) 3rd Tim Greenwood (Bristol Corinthian SC) Martin Barrett
