Congratulations to Madeleine and team.
A challenging set of conditions for the very efficient Race Committee at Poole Yacht Club didn’t prevent four fantastic races being sailed in heavy winds.
Madeleine showed her usual consistent form and sailed four fantastic races, finishing first, in each one. It was a tightly packed and competitive fleet, Jive and David Cooper followed closely in second, with local Poole YC sailors, Jambalaya and Joe Cross, in third. Good to see some new faces on the water, both new teams and returning J24 sailors. Welcome back to Jim Anderson and Rob Libby.
A special mention must go to Izzy Savage, first outing as owner and helm on the much loved, Pheonix. Congratulations! We are also excited to welcome to the fleet an all female crew, Athena XP and Octavia Owen, who sailed 6 up. Despite the conditions being challenging, they raced a great event and we hope the smiles onboard mean you’ll be back again!
We all know why this boat remains ever popular. The J24 fleet has one of the best bunch of people to spend a weekend with, both on and off the water. Our thanks to all involved, especially to the team at Poole Yacht Club, who provided a brilliant event both on and off the water.
