The south west zone teams were greeted by perfect flat water, sunshine and a gentle force 2-3 as all the teams rigged and readied themselves to do battle. With such perfect conditions the course was quickly set and a briefing signalled the start of what was set to be a fantastic day on the water. What’s more, the introduction of the new ‘open fleet’ meant it wasn’t just the T15ers who were chomping at the bit to get out there as kids and parents alike donned wetsuits and headed to the start line. The conditions remained consistent for the entire day leading to some excellent races and close finishes as all competitors found their feet and start pushing for the top spots.
As the day came to a close and the dust started to settle a prize giving was called to announce who had done enough to get on the podium in their respective fleets. However after the first few podium finishes were called it quickly became apparent that the Polkerris Pirates had exceeded all expectations and blown most of their rivals out of the water (so to speak)! Incredibly when the winning team was announced it was made clear that the Pirates had won by a whopping 12 points clear of the nearest team. After never winning an interclub event before the whole team were ecstatic, setting a very high precedent for the up-n-coming events and have clearly shown themselves to be a force to be reckoned with this year! Well done all of you!
