Fat Face RS Eurocup Day 2 A long hot day on the water. Day 2 of the RS700 Fat Face Euro cup was hot and sultry day. It saw the fleet becalmed, the Jellyfish rising in numbers and cloths flying off as the fleet tried to amuse themselves when the Race Officer had to postpone for a couple of hours. Top marks must go to John Lilley for his somersaults from the wings which kept everyone amused. Eventually a light breeze established itself and allowed racing to commence. Angus Chisholm obviously benefited from a quiet romantic evening in with his girlfriend as he totally dominated the days racing. In race 1 he started from the Committee boat end, and worked the shifts up the left side of the beat to lead at the first mark, a lead which he never lost. John Heissig sailed a good race only to find he was OCS which promoted Eddie Gatehouse to 2nd and Pete Greenhalgh filled out the top 3. 1 Angus Chisholm GBR 2 Eddie Gatehouse GBR 3 Pete Greenhalgh GBR The second race saw Angus again win the start but this time with a port end flier. He proceeded to bang the right hand corner to again lead around the windward mark. This time he didn't have things all his own way as a technical hitch (note to Angus must learn to tie better knots on the pump handle) allowed Tim Dickinson through to take the lead. Tim chose to go hard left, whilst Angus banged right again and benefited from some opportunistic surfing as the committee boat relocated to the windward mark to shorten the course which popped Angus back into the lead with Tim taking second. Mark Pollington sailed an excellent and conservative race to pull through to 3rd at the finish. Everyone was more than happy to see the shortened course flag as it had been a long hard day, particularly for the many jellyfish which were increasingly proving to be a major obstacle. 1 Angus Chisholm GBR 2 Tim Dickinson GBR 3 Mark Pollington GBR
