Series Results for Fowley Island Race

Report on the Fowley Island Race


The Fowley Island race this year proved to be a light wind affair with opportunities to gain places and too loose them. This resulted in a race where many positions changed with John Dutch and Paul Carter showing a clear pair of heels to the island and for much of the return journey.

Martin, Steve W., Joan W.,P. Wiggins and Tim S. all changed positions on a regular basis during the run down to Fowley. Steve beat Martin to the end of the island and a good tack by Steve saw him pull away with Martin getting caught port\startboard by Joan and Phil. The beat home was where the race was won with Martin staying in the middle of the river trying to maximise the current and everyone else trying to make the corner without tacking. John D., Steve W. and Tim S. all started to pull away during the approach to Faversham Creek. Joan and Phil moved over to the Sheppey side of the river and this proved a winning move maximising both wind and tide they quickly overhauled Martin and the others closer to mainland. Martin moved over to fall in line astern with them but with such light wind he found it difficult to catch Joan but passing John, Steve and Tim who were staying close to the mainland.

During the final marks to the finish Joan maintained her lead and finished 4th on the water and first overall with Martin second followed by Steve W. third. Paul Carter and Steve Sobey fought a grand battle between themselves despite Steve S. boat having over 30 stone on board! Paul took line honours with Steve S. second.
