RS Sailing Summer Champs, HISC - HOT, HOT, HOT!

More information on

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous weekend!   I hope as I write this there are not too many competitors applying after-sun as they sit at work in a complete daze.  It was as hot as the hinges of a deckchair on a Copacabana beach.

210 boats in 8 fleets arrived at Hayling Island SC for their RS Sailing Summer Championships in hot, hot sun.   Saturday was a gentle F2-3, and all fleets got their 3 designated races in with only a short postponment.  Excellent race management meant that we were all kept apart and got excellent, tactical racing.  Back to shore early evening, all competitors were greeted by Alex Newton-Southon, MD RS Sailing, and Clare and Sally, Association Secretaries, giving out hard-earned and very welcome beers.   Then watching the spectacular sunset from the HISC balcony, enjoying the curry and dancing to 'Still Moving'.

Sunday was a much lighter affair with no sea breeze appearing.  The RS200/400/700/800 course managed 3 races in extremely light winds, and the RS100/300/500/Aero course, suffering from even lighter conditions managed one race.

Many thanks to Hayling Island SC for their slick race manamgement, great grub, large balconies and enough room to have all of us there.

Many thanks to RS Sailing for sponsoring the event, providing Saturday night's entertainment and come-ashore drink.

Many thanks to Harken UK for providing some lovely prizes.
