VX Ones at The Silvers Marine Scottish Series



AT7A50651 AT7A40057 AT7A40030The Whitsun weekend brought around the Silvers Marine Scottish Series, and for the second time the VX One fleet having its own class start. Six VX Ones made the trip to Tarbert, Loch Fyne from as far afield as Aberdeen, Darlington and Rhode Island. The weather was not typical Scottish Series–light winds and sun were the norm for the regatta, ideal for the après sail beer and scallops. Racing was dominated by the USA father and son team of Brian and Hayden Bennett. They were consistently quicker in the light to medium breezes encountered. The fleet was appreciative of the ‘chalk talks’ put on by these two during the regatta, enabling all sailors to up their game and learn some of the nuances of rig tuning the American way. Best of the rest was another family affair–brothers Jono and Benji Shelley finished second in Abracadabra. In third place, having had been adjudicated a photo finish with Abracadbra in race one was The Lead Sled sailed by Neal piper, Euan Dunn and Nathan Batchelor. Interestingly all boats but one were crewed by members of the same family, four of which were father and son combinations. First under 18 was Rhys Lewis sailing on Battlecruiser from Ullswater YC. Next regatta on the 2016 VX One circuit is the Inland Championship at Ullswater YC on 25/26 June.
