After all the crews enjoyed a great night sampling the hospitality of Rothesay it was back to business for Day two of the Luddon Construction RC35 Scottish Championships last weekend.
The first race began with a gusty 15 to 20 knots from the northeast. The increased wind strengths were more to the liking of Triple Elf who secured a good second place in Race 1 behind Jacob and Banshee in third place. This left the overall scores very close between the Animal, Banshee and Jacob with only the final race to go.
The winds decreased slightly for the final race and Animal got a cracking start setting them up for the hard-earned victory over Triple Elf that they needed to try and secure the event. Banshee was hot on the leaders heels and almost caught them after taking advantage of a big shift on the final beat, however, they could only manage a third place by nine seconds.
This meant Animal was crowned Scottish Champions on countback from Banshee with Jacob and single point further back.
A big thanks for the support from our sponsors, Luddon Construction and the hosting club, Royal Northern and Clyde Yacht Club.
