DB Week 2010 report

Well the week went by in a flash but then it was compressed from the usual 6 days sailing into 5. After a blustery start for the first two races on Sunday we had superb sunshine for the rest of the week even if the wind was on the light side until the final race on Thursday. The Long Distance race was cancelled by the Race Officer when there was no wind at the start time of 10:30.

The racing was dominated by James Hewitt and Rachel Bullingham sailing in DB 635 borrowed from Wendy Davies with four straight wins. For those interested in such facts James is only the second non PYC competitor to win the National Championship in a clinker type hull. ( The first was J. Harrison in DB 32 in the first championship in 1957).
