The British Optimist Nationals
The Royal Southern Yacht Club was represented in Mini Racers, Regatta Coaching, Transition and Senior Main Fleets' amongst 450 sailors, along with a coach and mark layers.
The Transition fleet sailed 18 races in full offshore conditions and was dominated by Finlay Craigen who won 8 races and the regatta, other notable results were a 15th from Tom Ewart-Smith and 21st from Lucy Davis.
The Senior Main Fleet consisted of 163 sailors split into Silver and Gold fleets. Charles Handley sailed out of his dry suit for the first two days to make the Gold fleet and finished as 23rd top placed Brit. Certainly some names to look out for the future, all of whom started their sailing at Splash.

First Splash Event in the Yacht Haven
First Splash Event in the Yacht Haven
High water at 1530 and a Splash session have not historically worked, however with Sam's Ramp we were now able to launch at all states of the tide.
With a superb weather forecast, albeit erring on the light side a fully blended group of Splashers assembled in the vast car park at 1030 hours.
We planned for the seniors to sail to the beach at Calshot Lagoon and for the Junior to travel by RIB with a handful of Oppy’s in tow. Sailing across proved to be an excellent lesson in sailing down-wind in light airs and how every little increment can help or hinder boat speed.

Congratulations to Annabel Vose and Kirstie Urwin Winners of the Ladies 420 Junior European Championships
Congratulations to Annabel Vose and Kirstie Urwin Winners of the Ladies 420 Junior European Championships
The best of days for Annabel Vose/Kirstie Urwin who were aiming to see off the competition from the boy’s teams and creep up through to the final top 10 on the overall leaderboard. It seemed like too big an ask, but the pair achieved their goal in impressive style with race finishes of 7,2.
Except for the Charles’ brothers results on the final day, Vose and Urwin’s scorecard from races 11 and 12 was the second best points average from the two races and rewarded them with a tenth place finish overall and the 2012 420 Ladies Junior European Championship title.
