The skies cleared for the final day of the Gul B14 Championships at Paignton Sailing Club after two days of bad weather. The breeze was at a steady 8 knots and this made the final day an ideal environment to race. The organizers wanted to get the remaining four races to be completed on the final day.
The Race 7 was a good one for the Blue Badge. Torquay chose the right-hand track and established a solid position at the start. The Blue Badge rolled over Torquay to win this race. Tim and Anna had to settle for the 4th position after a final burst put up by Tony and super Meg to win the 3rd position.
The Race 8 saw a restart. Blue Badge took the right-hand route once again and set up an easy win quite early in the race. Trunky did its best to settle for the 2nd position a little bit ahead of the Brightmile that had Mark Watts and Matt Johnson on board.
After the 8th race, it was clear that Blue Badge was in the winner’s seat. But, they did not take any chances by staying off the final race. They hit the right once more to lead over Brightmile and Trunky. The breeze started to be softening on the 2nd and this slowed down Blue Badge a bit. This gave Trunky the chance to lead to the top, but got rolled on the hoist by the inform Blue Badge at the finish. This way Blue Badge was adjudged the overall winners.
