2012 RM Veterans National Championship

With 7 first place finishes Mark Dennis, sailing his Prime Number made sure of winning the 2012 RM Veterans National Championship Hosted by Chelmsford Radio Yacht Club at the Channels Lake on Sunday 8th April 2012.RMVets2012

The event was run on an Olympic Course that was allowed to remain unchanged until the last two races when Race Officers George Beacroft and Graham Bartholomew were forced by a wind change to make adjustments.

The whole event was run and sailed in good humour and the few incidents that occurred were all dealt with on the water.

Sadly John O’Brian had a winch break down in the sixth race that forced his retirement from the event. The remainder of the fleet of ten, went on to sail a total of seventeen races on the best weather day of the long weekend.
