2013 K6 Itchenor SC. Grand Prix

With the weather forecast broadcasting a drop in temperature it was good to see a healthy turn out of both visitors and club boats.

In spite of the North West wind on Saturday a good windward – leeward course was set in Chichester harbour. The current was also pretty much running in line with the wind. Starting on the top of the tide it was Peter Dann crewed by Dominic and Adrian Stranislaus who powered off the line to take a commanding lead. However as the wind went up and down in strength and the current started to take affect their lead was eaten away only to be overtaken by Dave Hitchcock / Ian Nicholson and Ian Robson / Sandy Johnson. During the second race of the day Peter Dann and his team made no mistake and in a strengthening wind which included a massive gust causing a few broaches - took the winning gun. The wind continued to be at the high end of the 20s and race three was won by the local boat of Roger and Michael Ewart-Smith. The last race of the day was once again taken by Dave and Ian. While most of the fleet were changing places the steady team of Lawrence and Luka Crispin sailed an impressive day scoring a string of seconds.

Saturday evening the fleet was hosted by the club and treated to an excellent dinner which was very welcome after the strenuous day.

Sunday brought a respite after the previous rather lively session. Peter Dann with Dominic and Adrian started the day showing the fleet around the harbour taking the lead off the start line and holding it to the end. It was now a three way battle between the teams of Dave and Ian, Peter & his team and Laurence and Luka. The last 2 races went down to the wire and with Dave & Ian winning one and Mason Woodworth & Robert Hayes winning the last race the final result went to count-back with Dave and Ian coming out on top.
