RS Feva Open at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club
RS Feva Open at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club 2011


It was the old "tale of two halves", well as far as the weather was concerned! In the morning a decent breeze, force 3-4 occasionally gusting to force 5, then after lunch the wind... dropped (sigh). However, at the top of the leaderboard the battle continued with four boats vying for the podium positions.

The congratulations went to Anna Prescott and Jess Eales for winning the 2011 RS Feva Open at Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club. They gave a master class in Feva sailing. Though both lightweights, their boat stayed level in even the worst morning gusts upwind, with heavier crews around them healing and skidding sideways, their gust preparation not quite at the same level. Anna and Jess extended their leads downwind with classic 'soaking' in gusts, 'up' in the lulls technique - their light weight did them no harm down wind, either. Three wins from the five races ensured they took overall first place from Samuel Grade and Katie Prescott. Island Barn's James Curtis and Harry Phelps finished in third place by one point from Matt Hill and Joe Reeve.
