Final Day - Friday 3 Aug - last race sailed 

 

** Congratulations to Mike Senior & Chris White from South Staffs SC on winning the GP14 World Championship **

 

Race 9 was sailed in light shifty airs.  Mike Senior was just 1 point ahead of Ross Kearney over night so it was all down to the last race.  Mike made a good clean start - Ross did not.  Ross couldn't get clear air to fight Mike for the championship.  Mike took the race with Neil Marsden taking 2nd. Ross finished 28th.  Good enough to keep Ross in runner up postion.  Neil's 2nd took him into 3rd overall.

 

Shane & Taxi took 4th overall. Ger & Mel take 9th with some of the most consistent results throughout the week.  Mel also takes leading lady crew overall.  Tom Gillard & Andy Thompson finished 10th.  All of these finishers were in the Platinum fleet.

 

Curly Morris & Laura McFarland take 19th overall and 3rd in the Gold fleet.  Next Irish boat was Alan Blay & David Johnston in 22nd.  Keith Louden  & Alan Thompson in 28th.

 

Katie Dywer & Michelle Rowley in 41st position take first lady helm and all female boat.

Worlds Mount St Michael Visit & Irish night

 

All competors were invited to a drinks reception at the beautiful St Michaels Mount.  Lord St Levan and his family still reside there but the Mount and the Castle have been gifted to The National Trust.  Lord St Levan is President of the Mounts Bay SC.

 

This was followed by the traditional Irish night and promoting the next Worlds in 2020 at Skerries.  It was very well attended.  The flyer for the night encouraged the wearing of green.  One of the male sailors could only find a green dress!! 

 

All I can say about the rest of the night - is that 'when the drink is in, the wit is out'.
