Sailing into Third Place

Posted by & filed under News.

Back in June, two members of the RTP team took part in the Savills 2014 Sailing Regatta which was hosted at Mylor Yacht Club.

John Darbyshire and Richard Collett manned a team of 6 sailors on board ‘Per Elisa’ (pictured above) and raced in Falmouth Bay before crossing the finish line in the Carrick Roads, off Mylor Yacht Harbour.

Conditions were ideal, with a light to moderate Southerly breeze allowing good progress and close racing in the sunshine. The race officer set a fairly long course with plenty of mark roundings and fortunately enough time in between for refreshment!

The race went well, with our team coming a respectable third place and receiving a bottle of champagne to celebrate their achievement.

A big thank you to Savills for holding the event, a wonderful time was had by all. We look forward to competing again next year.
