IAPS Sailing Regatta 2015

Two crews competed at the IAPS Sailing Regatta held at Weymouth and Portland Harbour, this was the location used for the Olympics 2012 sailing events.  Our two crews were Theo Sweeney and James Brook in boat 1, William Whitmore and William Waring in boat 2, the fleet totalled 45 boats all sailing Laser Pico's.  The weather was perfect, sunshine and a good wind all day.  With two races in the morning and two in the afternoon the crews were busy throughout the day; each race was a two or three lap triangle.  Theo and James finished 38th, 41st, 35th and 39th in the four races; this placed them 41st overall.  The two William's finished 20th, 12th, 23rd and 29th; gaining 20th place overall.  Both crews admitted that their starts were below par but had enjoyed racing in a large fleet.
