Newquay Championships 2011 – Mens

2097 3

Day 1 saw boat splintering conditions, with steep and at times breaking seas pounding the first and second marks.

Both Shearwater and Royal were holed in separate incidents and no boat escaped without taking on large amounts of water over the bow.

Falmouth A and Par A are the stand out crews at the moment (having already had a gritty first round encounter) but after that there’s a wide open fleet due to withdrawls and disqualifications.

Yes, numbers are well down on previous years but there’s plenty of excitement and challenging conditions to keep the crowds glued to the action.

Day 2 promises closer and closer heats as the last 24 battle bigger seas and more wind than yesterday, racing starts at 11am…

Close racing again, disqualifactions, and amazing efforts. Thoroughly enjoyable to watch as well as take part in. The conditions didn’t turn out to be as rough as expected.

** Well done to Falmouth A for taking the county title. Pushed all the way by Par Bay, finishing no more than a minute behind after two long laps of the championship course.

    • Totally agree. The starts should have bouys to line up across (like the IOS Champs) and there should be a 30 second call. If anyone is infront of the line before the start is called, they should be disqualified. This would save so much time, as every race gigs are asked to back-up. It’s ridiculous!!!
