A calm  Solent weekend dished up some very tricky Squib racing at the 2023 South Coast Championships hosted by the Royal Victoria Yacht Club over the weekend of September 9/10.

Three races in light wind was probably more than expected on the Saturday, when crews first looked out on the Solent on Saturday morning,  Some even ventured out for wakeboarding/waterskiing in the postponement!

Three different winners, well done  Surprise: Duncan Grindley & Paul Goldman, Seven David: Lloyd & James Brown and Aquabat: Dan Henderson and Steve Warren-Smith.

Better conditions greeted the fleet the following morning. Aquabat dominated with two more bullets, with Nine doing enough to comfortably secure second place overall. Martin Harrison in Lee Deck finished on equal points with Surprise, who took the final podium place on a tie-break.

Many thanks to everyone at ‘The Vic’ who worked hard to make this yet another successful event.
