Zhik RS Elite National Championship 2017 at HISC

Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 July 2017


The aim is to sail four races Friday.

With a building wind forecast, wind over tide, 45 knots of breeze at St Catherine’s Point and 58 knots off Portland Bill, the competitors briefly considered the option to race inside Chichester Harbour but unanimously agreed not to race today and aim to sail four races tomorrow.

After a brief protest hearing this morning, Legs Eleven (11 – Paul Fisk, Martin Grady, Pippa Jubb) has been awarded redress in the form of average points for races 2 and 3 to be calculated from the results for Races 1, 4 & 5.
