RS Fat Face Circuit Highcliffe SC

Highcliffe Sailing Club was the final venue for the 2002 Fat Face Racing Circuit. We were welcomed with a gentle S/E wind with a great backdrop of the Isle of Wight. Race 1 got under way with Brian Greensmith who led from the windward mark, with Alex Southon in close pursuit. Southon took Greensmith down the last reach to claim 1st, with Colin Turner 3rd and Ian Montague 4th. The wind was getting lighter in Race 2; Montague and Turner led from the start, with Greensmith 3rd and John Hessig 4th. Race 3 Montague showing his light wind pace lead from the start and won while Turner and Greensmith were fighting for 2nd and 3rd Nick Lowe coming back to get 4th. Sunday was looking more promising -12-15 knots with big channel swell was going to make some very interesting sailing. Race 4 Greensmith and Montague port tacked the fleet, both of them seem to be very nip-and tuck all the around the racecourse. Greensmith won while Southon, Hessig, and Turner were battling it out for 3rd. Southon come through to take 3rd with Heissig very close behind in 4th. Montague port tacked the whole fleet again in Race 5, and led around the racetrack, winning with a impressive victory. While Greensmith got another consistent 2nd, followed by turner3rd and Griff Turner 4th. Final race 6. Greensmith and Montague were going to be battling it out for 1st overall. Greensmith won after a very tight race with Southon.
