Draycote Water SC hosted the 2nd RS Pursuit Race on 2/3 November 2002. This year was a 2-day event, with a longer race on Day 1, a shorter one on Day 2. Day 1 started rather unpromisingly, with hardly a whisper of wind. However, after a short delay, the Race Officer started the 4 RS Fevas for their 1st RS Event since joining the Assocaiton. The racing was close, in a light and frustrating wind, and the final results saw Steve Irish and Martin Gotrell leading the 800 pack. The racing was followed by the 2002 AGM, Gul Grand Slam prize-giving, with Mike 'Mr Gul'Pickering presenting the prizes. Then fireworks and a party. The party did for a few of the sailors, but the stalwarts were on the numerous start lines for a shorter Pursuit Race on Sunday, in a sunny force 3-4. Again very close finishing, with Steve Irish/Martin Gotrell cleaning up, despie the fact that Steve got married on the Friday! A great event well organised by a refurbished Draycote. The course saw every point of sail used and, as they say, a change is as good as a rest ...
