After the Laser Nationals finished on Friday night a group of us (obviously crazy) Laser sailors drove all the way down from Scotland back to my home town for the Swanage Regatta. Despite getting less than 5 hours sleep we arrived on the Saturday morning keen to battle it out to try and win the £100 prize for winning all 5 races over the weekend.
Whilst the Saturday went pretty well for me, winning all 3 races, the Sunday proved much more challenging with a variety of fun, but uniquely tricky, courses. Whilst I did not win the £100 prize with my 2, 4 scoreline on that day, I still won the regatta. Very happy. I seriously would encourage everyone to come and attend next years regatta. It is a lovely area with some awesome sailing. there is always so much going on in the local area and even better there is a huge free BBQ on Saturday night. Check out some of these awesome photos from the weekend:
Thanks to Ben Childerly, Joe Drake and Jake Bowhay for coming down and pushing me all weekend.
