SSCBC Sailors hit the waters in Enoshima again last week in the Sailing World Series. This regatta is different to the previous regatta in Enoshima in that there was more competition (more than one boat per country was able to enter). The weather for the week included large swells and wind on the upper limit. This unfortunately meant that not all planned racing went ahead.
In the Laser Radials, Casey Imeneo battled through the big swell and finished up a respectable 39th. Casey is continually building up her experience as she goes along. In the 49ers, unfortunately the Phillips brothers had to retire from racing after Sam injured himself. We wish Sam a speedy recovery.
In the 49er FX, Tess Lloyd and Jaime Ryan were hungry to go from strength to strength from last week’s great regatta. Their course was hit hard by the breeze and only managed to get 6 races in total and in one of the races, only 4 boats were able to finish the course. Tess and Jaime were 20 seconds off finishing in 5th place. But you get that on the big jobs. In the medal race, the girls finished up 6th which put them 7th place overall.
SSCBC was also represented off the water, with Ben Fels as an International Judge and Harry Mighell as a support for the Outterridges in the Nacras.
Congratulations to all competitors.
