More Out & About (Toppers & RS500s)

More success for Rollesby sailors out and about at championships.

Daniel found qualifying (63rd) for the gold fleet at the Topper nationals hard work but once there was fully on form finishing a cracking 26th overall out of a massive entry of 204 boats. A superb performance, hope this inspires the new crop of youngsters we’ve seen out this summer (time for Daniel to run some basic training?)

Meanwhile 51 RS500s attended their European Championships. Three of the four Gorleston crews spend their winter practicing with us – Phil & Tamsin Highfield were very consistent finishing 24th, Dave Houghton & John Symonds (31st) spent the week trying and eventually just succeeding in catching Anna Zmura & Keith Sykes (36th). Fellow Gorleston members Tim & Heather Wilkins however showed them a clean transom winning the event outright – many congratulations………..

There’s plenty of others attending local regattas, John Saddington won the Hickilng Evening Regatta! – Please let me know how you got on and I’ll post something here.
