Endeavour Trophy 2018

Published by under Racing,Sandhoppers

Many of you may be aware of the Endeavour Trophy. Named after the 1934 British Entry to the America’s Cup. The Endeavour is the annual “Champion of Champions” race held at the Royal Corinthian YC in Burnham.

The much coveted (and extremely valuable) trophy can only be entered if you have won a National Class Championship within that year. All classes sail the same dinghy – currently RS200’s over a weekend’s fleet racing in a series of very short upwind/downwind courses.

This year the RCYC have introduced a Keelboat version of the trophy. This will be sailed on September 22nd and 23rd using the 707 yacht. The RCYC have a fleet of these boats, all newly fitted out and ready to race. The type of racing is designed to make exciting, high speed sailing and minimise the spread in the fleet. With a target time of 15 minutes per race, the emphasis is on as many short races in as quick succession as possible. The winner of this event will be invited to compete in the main Endeavour Trophy event in mid October.

Peter Thompson, this year’s Sandhopper National Champion, has put together a team and has entered the event on behalf of the Sandhopper Class and Thorpe Bay Yacht Club. His crew will be made up of: Mark Dell, Paul Beasley and Chris Clarke. All of whom are among our club’s top sailors.

They will be competing against this year’s National Champions from the following classes: Squib, Sonata, RCOD, J24 and Flying Fifteen. All of these will be top class sailors and the racing, now with the addition of the Sandhopper Class, will be very exciting to watch from the banks of the Crouch. So, do come along and support them if you can.

The very best of luck boys!          https://royalcorinthian.co.uk/endeavour/

Whalley Cup – Well done Cadets

Published by under Cadets,Racing

Twenty Cadets turned out to race for the Whalley Cup last Sunday. Seven Lasers, five Picos and a RS Feva were competently sailed, all making a good start and completing 3/4 laps of a Cadet course. The conditions were perfect; 12 – 15 mph winds in glorious sunshine.  Congratulation to all who sailed, but particularly to Katy in 1st place, Henry in second and Luke in third.  Full results click here.  Choose Class: Cadets, Series: Whalley Cup.    Our thanks to Graham Dare RO and his team for a grand job!
