Tessa Gates - Chairman.
Race Officer Robin Powell and his assistant David Perchard must be congratulated on their organisational skills when the largest fleet recorded by Brading Haven in at least the last 10 years took to the line for Bart's Bash, a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest sailing race.
With the rules of the event requiring a single start Powell and Perchard split the fleet of 37 boats into two handicap groups, the fast starting to starboard and the slow to port of the committee boat. Although the course was a simple triangle of 4.33km, the heavy sea and keen force 4/5 north north easterly wind provided some close and challenging sailing for the 50 plus competitors, resulting in 10 retirements before the finish. Simon Cooper managed to avoid most of the traffic in his Laser by taking an early lead in front of the Solos of Gareth Jones and Martyn Davies and the Wayfarer of Duncan Bates with Isobel McInnes mixing with the boys in her Laser Radial, each making different tactical manoeuvres to outdo each other.
The finish like the start kept the Race Officers on their toes with the first 10 boats finishing within a 10 minute slot. Cooper finally took the gun from Bates with Davies just 6 seconds adrift. Further personal battles took place behind the lead boats with the first slow handicap boat the Scow of Don Guidon only finishing 10 seconds ahead of the second, David Earee, whilst right behind came the Scows of Peter Pagnell and Grainna Andrews who could not be split.
The final result on handicap was a win for Cooper, with Davies taking the silver and Jones the bronze. See the full BHYC results here.
