Dinghy

Rooster RS800 National Tour event No. 6

 
Great hospitality and an amazing beach and shore team at the second Garda

It was a McEwen masterclass with Luke and Emma leading the way with five race wins.

Second place was closely fought between the locals, and was decided by the Jenkins (Paul and Peter) forgetting rule number one – keeping the sails in the sky, as they tipped it in on the last race of the regatta.

Andy and Allyson Jeffries then sailed from fifth at the windward mark to a 50th birthday win.

It is fair to say that the whole weekend was a great advert for next year’s 20th anniversary Eastbourne SSC nationals (the 2nd Garda).

So if you are young/old, tall/short or just somewhere in the middle, get yourself a boat and come down from the 5-8 September 2019.

There will be great sailing, even better socials and a whole team of volunteers working to make the regatta one to tell your grandkids about. What’s not to like!
