Niners and Musto Skiffs at Queen Mary SC

Breezy conditions for first open meeting

Monday March 10th 2003, Author: Ovingtons, Location: United Kingdom
Wind was the order of the day to say the least! A very blustery 2 days sailing was had by the 9er fleet and Musto Skiffs for their first open of the year.

The Musto skiffs and 49er provided the entertainment in the extremely challenging and tough conditions much to the delight of the spectators and those who did not venture out. In the Musto Skiff it was Richard Stenhouse once again showing that practice counts. In the 49er Andy Rice and Nick Murphy completed more races than anyone else and included an impressive display of water skiing whilst bearing away.

It was the 29ers that provided the racing entertainment, while the other fleets were struggling in the very strong and gusty conditions, this fleet was racing. All six races were held with all but a few completing all the races. David Evans & Rick Peacock dominated the fleet with some very impressive sailing.
