Series Results for Hilda Rusdell Series

Report on the Hilda Rusdell Series


The Hilda Rusdell series was sailed over a weekend of brilliant sunshine and winds ranging from 3 - 5 which provided a challenge for the combatants especially on Sunday. 4 boats competed for the cup although more had entered on Sunday but the stronger winds putting paid to their racing, with only 1 boat actually completing all of the races.

Martin Searle won in his laser with a clean sweep of firsts but this masks the true story!

On Saturday the wind was lightest and the short course provided by the race officer made for some interesting laps with Martin lapping fellow competitors Mike Lennon and Lyndsey Shefford there was some close racing between them with positions swapping on the water a number of times Lyndsey scoring 2 firsts. Ben Hutchison and crew Alex Jones were late for the start of the first race and elected to do some practice and then missed the start of the second race!

Sunday was the windier of the two days. Mike rigged up but never ventured out in his old solo, David Johnson also sailing a solo ventured out but retired before the start of the first race. Thus the races turned into a match race between the Laser of Martin Searle and laser II of Ben Hutchison and Alex Jones. The first race saw Ben and Alex capsize twice (it was the first time they had capsized the boat!) but it wasn't until the second capsize that allowed Martin to catch up and beat them up until that point they were easily in the lead and all set to claim the top spot. In the second race Martin managed to hold them to a short lead by taking better lines up the beat and run despite a terrible start by Martin.

All in all a nice weekends sailing.
