RNLIAZAB Jem and Chris at end

A Cornwall based pensioner and his Somerset crew member have finally completed a yacht race despite some frightening set backs. 76-year-old Jeremy (Jem) Tetley from Grampound and 47-year-old Chris Vickery from Taunton limped into Falmouth today (Friday 29 June) after struggling with gear failure. They had been at sea for nearly 10 days having slowed to help a single-handed sailor who had broken his hand.

No Racing Due To Strong Winds On Day Four

RCYClub Logo 05

The competitors and Race Committee at the 2007 Etchells World Championship in Cowes have spent all day watching the weather and desperately hoping for the wind to drop so they could complete the final races of the regatta. Sadly the weather gods were not on their side and although the sun shone for much of the day the wind rarely dropped below 25 knots with regular gusts up towards 30 knots. This combined with a strong ebb tide made for a particularly nasty Solent chop and racing was never possible. Tomorrow’s scheduled reserve day will now be used in the hope of completing one final race.
