NoR for the Felpham Open Meeting can be found here.

 


Seven Bytes ignored the weather warning and turned up for the event. (8 if you count John Futcher who came just for a blast on Sunday but did not qualify). Four races were held on Saturday and two on Sunday. Only Stu, Rachel and John braved the big winds on Sunday! They all sailed magnificently. I know as I was out in the Patrol Boat!

Byte National Championships at Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy
by Emma Pearson

Day 0

With a healthy 35 entries and a history of stiff competition, the Byte Nationals is always a readily under-rated dinghy racing event. For the past 8 years the over all trophy has been alternating between Rick Whitehouse and Louis Saunders but with Louis taking a sabbatical and a mixed weather forecast Rick appeared to be the only one to watch.
