18 Foot Skiff Euro Tour
Weymouth

The British round of the 18 foot Skiff Euro Cup series got under way at the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy in excellent weather conditions yesterday afternoon.

Fresh from winning the first round of the series at Carnac last week, the RMW Marine team of Rob Greenhalgh, Dan Johnson and Peter Greenhalgh were again in superb form, winning both races today in a pleasant force 3 breeze.

Rob Dulson, Paul Constable and Alec McKinlay on Base 1 finished the day equal on points with Andy Richards, Andrew Fairley and Dave Richards on Radii, with the Base 1 team holding second place on count back.

Hermes, sailed by Ed Browne, Mark Tait and Lachlan Torrance currently lie fourth.

Two skippers normally seen in 49ers, Alistair Richardson and Andy Rice are both acquitting themselves well and enjoying the power of the 18 footers, especially down wind.

Transportation problems have unfortunately deprived the fleet of five boats, four Australian and one American, which are now expected to arrive late tomorrow. They were to have raced as guests in this four day series, and it has been decided that the Euro Cup series will take place over the originally scheduled four days, contested by the European boats which are already here, with the latecomers joining in a second (concurrent) series for another trophy on Saturday and Sunday, for which everyone will be eligible.
