2000s at the RS Sprint Championships - Rutland
What a great event! 7 races in one day with barely 5 minutes between each race.
The 2000 class is seriously competitive. With sailors who have won 10 of the last 14 nationals between them, as well as multiple other national championships, the team racing world championships and the current SailJuice winter series champions, this was always going to be a hotly contested event. It is also a seriously welcoming class. As newbies to the class, we were enveloped in the fun and felt like we’d been part of the class for years.
Storm Hannah put paid to racing on Saturday – a few of us sat in the club contemplating a blast for a few hours but decided that cake followed by beer was a better option! As forecast, the fleet woke to near perfect conditions on Sunday with 10-12 knots, gusting into the high teens.
The sprint championships is a no discard, short-course format, using a kind of inverted team racing course with an extra bit on the end – beat, reach, run, reach, beat, reach, run, finish, with a short reach back to the start line to roll straight into the next race.
The whole day was about spotting the gusts and shifts, both of which were frequent and massive. There was place changing on every leg and all the way through the fleet.
Race 1 saw Simon Horsfield / Katie Burridge take the bullet from Jasper Barnham / Serena DeNahlik in second and Rob Burridge / Sarah Burridge in third.
These three dominated the first four races, with a 1,2,3,3 score line for Simon / Katie, 2,1,1,1 for Jasper and Serena and 3,3,2,2 for Rob and Sarah. Kev O’Brien / Jonny McVey were mixing it with these three and pushing hard (too hard in race 1 with an OCS) and put in a couple of 4th places.
In race 5, whilst Simon / Katie had pulled away to a comfortable win, Fiona Tylecote / Steve Tylecote and Matt Greenfield / Tony Greenfield put the cat among the pigeons and were fighting out for the rest of the podium places until the last mark with Fiona / Steve sneaking inside and taking 2nd.
Race 6 was a really close affair with at least 8 or 9 boats in a proper tussle all the way to the finish. Simon / Katie showed their magic to stay out of trouble and record their third bullet and pull into the overall lead with one race remaining. Rob / Sarah took second, chased to the finish by Matt / Tony with Iain Yardley / Sarah Yardley taking their best result of the weekend in 4th.
After a gut-busting day that never seemed to stop to rest tired legs, the seventh and final race got underway with a general recall. Except the sprints don’t do normal general recalls. Instead, everyone has to sail round the ends of the line and start immediately. Carnage. Matt / Tony had spotted the impending doom and dropped from the middle of the line to the pin end and spun round fast. Simon / Katie got away unscathed from the committee boat end. As for everyone else… well, carnage. The front two pulled out a comfortable lead that they never looked like relinquishing. Simon / Katie extended to finish their event in style. Matt / Tony hung on to take their best result of a 2nd and Rob / Sarah and Jasper / Serena took 3rd and 4th to complete the podium positions overall.
The event was run faultlessly by a great team from Rutland to whom we owe many thanks, not just to the exceptional race management team but also the excellent galley team and shoreside support.
Finally, a personal thanks from us to the 2000 class for taking us in and showing us a great weekend. It’s their 20th anniversary this year and they are having a proper festival-like nationals at Tenby in August, encouraging new and old, serious racers, first timers and families – based on what we’ve seen, we’d thoroughly recommend it to everyone!
