U.K. National Championship
June 03, 2014
This year’s International Paints Poole Regatta in England was blessed with great breeze and awesome race committee work, making it fun and exhausting for all. The regatta is a huge bi-annual event held over the three days of the late May Bank Holiday Weekend. This was the U.K. National Championship for J/24s, who had one of their local hotshots from Parkstone YC take class honors—Duncan McCarthy sailing Madeleine to a dominating win with just 18 points net. Bob Turner & Ian Brown’s Serco from Castle Cove SC took second place followed by another local PYC boat, Nick Phillips’s Chaotic in third.
