RBYC at Blairegowrie

Two Brighton crews took part in the first Blairegowrie Women’s Sportsboat Regattas in a fleet of J70s in challenging conditions over the weekend.

After the first four races the team of Lily Richardson, Chloe Fisher, Matilda Richardson, Laura Thomson and Anna Cripsey were in the lead in their group. Unfortunately the second group races were blown out and the Regatta finished without a result.

The second Brighton team Bronwyn McIlveen, Catherine Hurley, Vanessa Twigg and Katie Holroyd also had fun in the first four races. The team usually sails on an Adams 10 but enjoyed their first outing on a J70.

The Regatta was well supported with volunteers and a special dinner where three great women sailors shared their sailing journeys with the team.

The teams look forward to returning again next year to compete in this great new event on the calendar.
