Coventry Trophy & EDCS 2

Brentwood Model Boat Club hosted the Coventry Trophy and second round of theBrentwood MBC Lake Eastern District IOM Championship Series on Sunday 16th march 2014. It was a warm, sunny spring day at the lake with a typical Brentwood swirling wind primarily from the West North West but swinging occasionally to the West or even West North West. This obviously made setting a course difficult as well as making if difficult for skippers at times.

Whilst some minor course changes were made in the morning, the course was a triangle and sausage with the start in the far corner at the car park end, the first mark near the landing stage; the second mark in the far corner at the fishing lake end; the third mark one of the start marks and the finish 2014-03-16 12.25.38between the first mark and the bank.

Whilst there were incidents on the water and most were resolved actually on the water with skippers doing the required penalty turns, there were a couple of incidents that required a brief arbitration on the bank which very quickly resulted in a skipper retiring without a full protest – our thanks to all skippers in enabling the event to run without a full protest hearing.

2014-03-16 12.25.07It was quite clear from the start that the event was going to dominated by four skippers, namely Mark Dennis, Malcolm Harris, Vernon Appleton and John Torrance. By lunch time only four points separated these four skippers and so it was after lunch that Mark started to pull away such that at one point he had a seven point lead over Vernon.

However, a couple of good races from Malcolm Harris and a bad race from Vernon, saw Malcolm take second place and close the gap on Mark who had a bad penultimate race, but was the winner on the day – congratulations to Mark.
