Royal Southern Match Cup Event Roundup
Royal Southern Match Cup Event Roundup
Ian Williams emerged as a worthy winner of the first ever World Match Racing Tour event to be held in the UK, the Royal Southern Match Cup 2015. But this ISAF Grade 2 event posed a real scare for Ian from the Club's own Academy member Mark Lees in the semi-finals.
Five-time World Match Racing Tour (WMRT) champion and the current world number one, Williams had kept a 100 per cent win record until he ran into Lees in the first of the knock-out series. Lees took the first race and an early lead in the best-of-five, before Williams hit back taking the next two. In a declining and shifty Solent breeze, and despite a coming together at the top mark, Lees kept the tie alive with a win to level the scores. Article is a round-up article of all 4 days

Royal Southern ISAF Grade 2 Match Cup - Day Two Report - All set for a thrilling finale.
It's all set for a thrilling finale to the Royal Southern Match Cup 2014, held in association with the RYA and Raymarine, with the four highest ranked sailors set to go head-to-head out on The Solent on Sunday.
The sun shone - mostly - and the breeze stayed in for the concluding Round Robin matches followed by the Quarter-Finals. While the pre-regatta favourites progressed to the semis, all were kept on their toes by some determined opposition.

With conditions from fresh to frightening, 14 teams from eight Yacht Clubs across the Solent and beyond, entered this year's Interclub Youth Keelboat Nationals on Saturday 29th March for the Griffin Trophy, kindly donated by RORC.
