Due to sea state, we raced inside Portland Harbour. An epic battle developed between Archie Massey & Dan Wilsdon and Roger Gilbert & Ben McGrane on the final lap, resolved only metres from the finish line... Full report below. | 1st | GBR 1541 | Selden | Roger Gilbert & Ben McGrane | | 2nd | GBR 1519 | George 1st | Archie Massey & Dan Wilsdon | | 3rd | GBR 1484 | | Tom Heywood & Ed Clay | | 4th | AUS 663 | Irwin Sails/Ronstan | Lindsay Irwin & Andrew Perry | | 5th | AUS 656 | Too Late to Stop Now | Mark Krstic & Scott Cunningham | | 6th | GBR 1509 | Monkey Business | Sam Pascoe & Alex Knight | The fleet launched into a gusty 20 knot breeze, for two races – the first combined the Prince of Wales (PoW) Cup and Race 2 of the World Championship series. Eagerness to get on the water at last meant the fleet were uncharacteristically early for the start and the warning signal was sounded promptly at 11:30. The fleet got away first time and by the windward mark Archie Massey and Dan Wilsdon led, having worked the left hand side of the beat. They were followed by Georg Borkenstein & Big Eike Dietrich, Roger Gilbert & Ben McGrane and then the chasing pack. Down the run a number of boats overstood, allowing Roger & Ben to close in on second and allowing Mark Kristic & Scott Cunningham to cement fourth followed by Tom Heywood & Ed Clay.Up the second beat Roger & Ben pasted Georg and the Incredible Hulk to claim third and Tom & Ed squeezed up inside Mark & Scott to secure fourth. The second lap was a triangle and on the second reach Tom & Ed managed to hold the spinnaker longer and pass Georg and the giant.From there Archie & Dan extended, chased hard by Roger & Ben. Tom & Ed got clear of the chasing pack which was lead by Mark & Scott, Georg & Eike and Lindsay Irwin & Andrew Perry. Over the next few laps the top three remained the same. On the final lap, a triangle, Roger & Ben gained on the final beat by working the left and by the windward mark were right behind Archie & Dan. Ben & Roger delayed the hoist and managed to get onto Archie & Dan’s wind before hoisting. On the second reach Archie & Dan managed to hold the kite higher and were nearly laying the finish. Roger & Ben had to drop and two sail behind them, but in doing so took their wind, making them tea bag to windward. By the finish Roger & Ben were 80 yards clear, and claimed both the PoW Cup (UK National Champions) and the Race 2 win. Archie & Dan claimed second, followed by Tom & Ed, Lindsay & Andrew, Mark & Scott and a fast finishing Sam Pascoe & Alex Knight who grabbed sixth, and the last replica/crews union place on the final leg. ====== New boats and developments ====== ====== Other big stories ====== ====== Crews' Union ======
