Middle Nene SC held their second South-East Area Series RS200 open
meeting on Sunday 17th June. Eighteen boats, including nine visitors,
were grateful to be greeted by a force two south westerly and warm
sunshine - considerably better than forecast!

Early race one leaders Mike Chapman/Lynne Ratcliffe were passed downwind by Rob Janering/Marianthe Evangelides closely followed by John and Andrew Gill. Local team Matt Yallop/Debbie Walkerdon steadily picked their way up the fleet to finish fourth. The second race saw Steve Dunn/Rachel Jones making the most of the shifts to steal past Chapman/Ratcliffe and Simon Gillow/Emma Harniman to win.

After a relaxing lunch in the sunshine, Race Officer Laurie Jones and
his team did well to fit in two more windward-leeward races as the breeze began to fade.

Mark and Sue Pogmore in their brand new boat emphatically won the third race from Chapman/Ratcliffe. Jasper and Fergus Barnham had their best result of the series coming third, just ahead of local class captain Mark Hatsell crewed by Rob Ashman.

As the wind died, Chapman/Ratcliffe held on to their lead to win the
final race and the meeting. The Gills finished second overall, a point
clear of Gillow/Harniman in third.

Thanks to Middle Nene SC for hosting their second successful RS200
event. The South-East Area Series now moves on to Bexhill SC on Sunday
24th June, followed by Weirwood on Sunday 1st July.
