Club member Alexandra Rickham together with crew Niki Birrell were crowned SKUD 18 World Champions at Weymouth yesterday..........
WE DID IT! 2011 IFDS SKUD 18 WORLD CHAMPIONS! THE HAT TRICK IS COMPLETE ON HOME WATERS WITH A DAY TO SPARE.
We had to work really hard for it today but managed to get the job done. very shifty and gusty conditions in Portland harbour with 10 to 14 knots. A second in race 9 and fourth in race 10 did the business. The USA team French/Creignou passed the Aussies with 2 bullets but we managed to maintain our week long lead.
Tomorrow weather permitting as the UK is being hit by a big low pressure system which included 46 knot gusts last night, we will race the final race relaxed but of course aiming to win and end on a high.
Thanks again for all of your support and please know that it does make a difference to our 2012 campaign knowing we have all of you behind us.
