After the proper man’s wind of day 1, the second day of the Volvo Noble Marine RS300 Nationals was more to the liking of those who prefer sitting scrunched up in the bottom of the boat. We were treated to 7 hours of this as we chased the wind round the bay until it eventually settled enough to get some races in. I would like to say that we enjoyed 3 races but that would be stretching it a bit.
Winner of the day was Steve Cockerill who had 2 race wins in his scoreline today. Also going well was Pete Mackin in what is possibly the brightest boat ever built. He had 2 second places and was within an ace of winning the last one. Harry McVicar also moved up the leader board with a couple of countable results. Others also had good days but I’ve forgotten who they are. Sorry about that. Anyway, the top 4 position are separated by only 6 points so it’s tight at the top.
The evening was spent relaxing at Porthpean SC, enjoying sponsor Geeta’s Premium Mango Chutney, with a curry, washed down with plenty of Doom Bar and a few spiced rums on the boom of doom.
