Team Aqua Grabs RC44 Victory


The final day of RC44 Sotogrande Cup competition was indeed quite an interesting race to watch as the coastline of Andalucía and Sotogrande were in perfect condition.

The team of Chris Bake had increased the lead to 5 points soon after the completion of the 1st race. Thereafter, during the 2nd race, the team was on track for consolidating their position. The team had set the spinnaker and things were going perfectly. The stern got pulled up on a wave which buried the bow, which was quite unexpected. Chris Bake got drenched and the bowsprit was broken.

Despite such a condition, the team succeeded in recovering the kite. Thereafter, they spent around half of the leg to unpick carbon pieces.

Fin On Topper The World


After the selection in both Topper 4.2 squad and the south east zone squad, Fin Swanton has become the latest topic of discussion in the sailing club. The 14 year old has spent over 9 months traveling in and around UK for training sessions and several national sailing events.

Fin Swanton is the member of the Felpham Sailing Club and he was on the Topper World Championship recently in Ballyholme, in Northern Ireland. There were sailors from distinct countries in the event that included Australia, Japan, South Africa and China. With over 200 boats making an entry and 5 days of the race was indeed quite a competitive one. The decision had to be made to take a step ahead from 4.2 sail which is most commonly applied for lighter sailors to full 5.3. This was a larger fleet when compared to the others. The fact that there was a prize of a week’s Scotland Yacht Charter only added to the attractiveness of taking part.

It was an exciting week, although the wind conditions were a bit frustrating. But, it gave a great opportunity to Fin to practice extensively for a tough 6 day series in North Berwick. The shifty wind and strong fog made him lose the qualification in the gold fleet by 3 places. The races took place despite of being in water for over 6 hours at a stretch in water daily.
