Results for Weymouth speed week, Day 3, 10th of Oct.

Sorry for the delay in updates, we have had connection problems.

Day two & three have not been kind in wind strength or direction resulting in competitors  using big kit & offshore boat course’s. Having said that we have had some reasonable results in 9 to 13 knots of wind turning into 20 + knots of speed. 

We have had two film crews here, this week Noughts & Ones TV who are producing a DVD of Weymouth Speed week featuring archive footage & interviews with the stars including Bjorn Dunkerbeck, David Garrel, David White & Dan Ellis. Plus all the on the water action of the competitors, look out on our web site www. speedsailing.com for details. Also we have Beyond Tomorrow TV from Australia focusing on a program for Discovery Channel looking at the technology of going fast on the water.

The Tushingham Youth Trophy for the fastest was awarded on Sunday night. The under 17’s were amazingly close with all achieving over 20 knots in light conditions with only 2 knots separating the lads.

Winner 1st Dan Simpson 24.90 kts  (made all the more satisfying having pushed French Champion David Garrel into 3rd place on the Sunday)
