Corden Cup & EDCS 4

Twenty one skippers turned out to contest the Corden Cup and EDCS 4, hosted by Harwich and Dovercourt on Sunday 21st July 2013, and were faced with top suit weather and a windward leeward course which was to see very little, if any change , throughout the day.

Racing was very close but was dominated by the two Grahams , Bartholomew and Bantock who occupied first place in all but one race when  Agustin Moreno won race 6.

Officer of the Day Geof f Earle set a sensible race  pace with 8 races being contested. The observers , taken from the fleet lead by local Matthew Vincent,, did an excellent job and only two incidents had to be settled off the water, which also resulted in retirements.

Throughout  the fleet racing was  keen with just a few points separating skippers. Mark Dennis kept the pressure on the two Grahams early on but did have mixed fortunes in the afternoon session.  The final result saw Graham Bartholomew take the trophy from the previous holder Graham Bantock with Mark Dennis third just  two points ahead of Agustin Moreno.  Close racing throughout the fleet was evident all day with only six skippers failing to make the A heat.  The general opinion at the end  was that it had been a successful and enjoyable meeting for all involved.
