RYA North Zone Championships 2016 Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club
A new generation of Ripon sailors is emerging.
Congratulations to new comers to the racing circuit Christopher Hampshire taking 19 place in the highly skilled and competitive Optimist fleet in his first open event away from home as a solo helm.
Matthew Rayner took first place in the RS Tera regatta fleet and was rewarded for his bravery for just getting on the water in high winds.
Esme Barraclough smashed the fleet by taking second overall and first female in her 3rd ever away open regatta. Esme enjoyed the average 12 knots of wind with gust of over 21 knots after day one was called off due to heavy winds.
Esme had to fight back from her less experience starts in each race to finish with two 2nd places, a 3rd and dropping a 4th postion.
In the RS Feva XL Class Ellie Clark and Katie Scott fought hard in gusty winds to take 6th place overall and the 2nd Female spot.
They were followed by Ben Dearden and Emma Hampshire in their first open Feva event finishing a credible 8th overall. Intelligent sailing by these two as they choose not to fly the asymmetric while the more experience sailors capsized around them.
Other up and coming sailors from Ripon were:
RS Tera: Oliver Rayner 5th, Eilish Graham 6th, 2nd female, Holly Brayshay 9th, Tilda Brayshay, 10th, William Bailey 11th, Elizabeth Miller 14th, Jessica Peeters 15th, Holly Brayshay 16th, Joe Ellison 18th.
