St. Helier Yacht Club Virtual Racing
Published 21:12 on 22 Apr 2020
We may not have been able to go racing offshore or even in the bay but we have started our own series of racing on Virtual Regatta thanks to the RYA organising for sailing clubs to be able to run their own races.
Jason has kindly organised racing on a Sunday morning and Wednesday evening and we have also started an Alex Bleasby Retired Gents Race on Tuesdays.
On Sunday 14 sailors completed in a 5 race series. We had 5 different race winners in a very competitive field. Ian Moisan was the most consistent and came out on top winning a couple of pizzas from the club take away service. Charlie Perkins was second with Alan Liddle third and Nigel Coxshall fourth.
Yesterday saw three races in the Alex Bleasby Retired Gents series. There were seven competitors in the Star Class, keeping to the tradition of non spinnaker racing! The event was won by Rhys Perkins with Bob de la Haye second and Peter Crabbe third. We have not yet found out how we made an age allowance but I think that will be work in progress!
