Overall Standings after TT Rounds 3 & 4

John Tushingham heads the overall TT series after the first two 2024 events at Keighley.

RG65 TT Round 4 @ Keighley – 2/6/24

It was a bright and sunny morning with a decent swing rig breeze that greeted the eleven sailors for Round 4 of this years TT.  However, by the time racing started under the watchful eye of RO Damian Ackroyd, the breeze had started to build and most boats were sporting their full sized conventional rigs.  During the day, the breeze built (needing a change down) and remained from a mostly Westerly direction, giving a course where the windward mark was at the limits for good visbility and boats that were sailing away from the skippers.  There was plenty to be gained (and for some lost) in the gusts and shifts that existed across the course and throughout the day.

However, the one consistent aspect of the day was Graham Elliott sailing an Electronica, which managed to win 15 of the 16 races, with only Peter Baldwin (Uno)  spoiling his clean sweep by winning race 1, although that was by the slimmest of margins having had a good lead throughout the race.

There was a good tussle all day between Peter and John Tushingham (Sliver) to see who might get the second place and by the end, John took the spot with a slightly more consistent set of results over the day.  Special mention should go to Grant Rowe, who only started out Radio Sailing recently and had never sailed an RG65 before this weekend and finished a very creditable fourth in his borrowed Scurry.

This was a great days sailing at a relaxed pace and minimal walking with the course situated in front of the launching area and with some seating for a few as an added bonus!

The next two rounds of this years TT are scheduled to be held at Borunville on 6th and 7th July.

TT Round 3 – Sat 1/6/24

Here are the results for Saturday.

Some close racing across the fleet with everyone in B rigs, all in conventional except for #45 who used a swing rig to good effect in the later races.  A day for an Ivy 1 and 2.
