Hastings & St Leonards Open 2005
Again this year the weather for this Open Meeting was perfect, although we only had one visitor who had travelled down from Nottingham specifically to have some open sea sailing and he was certainly not disappointed, the host club having its whole fleet on the water.|
The day started with a good force 4 from the West providing ideal sailing conditions, with off wind sailing exciting in the waves. The first two races were sailed back to back with Dave Fowler and Daniel Greenwood winning both, behind him there was close racing between John and Richard Parmenter and fellow Hastings members Don and Sarah Terry, with each crew getting a second and third. Following them were Simon Terry and Colin Ross still coming to grips with their new boat.
After lunch the wind eased a little but Dave Fowler, the visitor, showed the home fleet the way again with Don and Sarah Terry getting second with John and Richard Parmenter, third.
Hopefully we will see a good turnout for this event in 2006, watch for the date.
