Belton Trophy & EDCS 1

Today saw 19 boat and their skippers gather at Heybridge for the Belton Memorial Trophy Race that also included the running of the first round of the Eastern District Championship.

The weather decided to favour us by providing a brisk top suit breeze and bright sunshine. The breeze was cold but allowed the two fleets to race over the Olympic triangle and sausage course all day.DSCN0319DSCN0325





Lunchtime combined with one of the two protest hearings allowed many time to drop down to second suite for the afternoon races. As you can see from the photographs, the racing was close, this backed up by the points recorded.







This was backed by the change of top boat. Colin Goodman did not start the day well but then bit by bit he remedied that situation, allowing him to take the trophy with just 3 points to spare.DSCN0344

In fact only 9 points separated the top 6 boats.
