Exciting Racing at the Burnham Dragon Easter Regatta 2022

Friday 15th – Sunday 17th April 2022

‘We couldn’t have wished for better’, was the prevailing sentiment following a wonderful event sailed in beautiful weather.

Courses were set just to the east of the moorings, except the first race on the third day when fickle winds and a building flood took us to the Jubilee area of the Roach.

Racing was competitive to say the least, with the first five races of the eight-race series all having different winners.

The event was not settled until the final mark of the final race, resulting in two teams on equal points with a double count-back to the highest number of seconds determining the winner, “Quicksilver VI” (Rob Campbell, Penny Anderson, Jonathan Hill & Matt Walker) ahead of “Beauty & The Beast” (Peter Marchant, Katie Cole & Andrew Norden).

It was wonderful to welcome a visitor from the Medway, “Fit Chick” (Chris Grosscurth & Emma York, joined by RCYC’s Harriet Norden), who were amongst the race winners. [scroll down for full race results.]

The social side was lively with excited chat in the bar after racing, a fish supper on the Friday night and a superb dinner on Easter Sunday.

Thanks all round to so many, but naturally to Class Captains Ian & Gerry Gray, Race Officer Edwin Buckley and his great Team Phoebe, to RCYC staff for looking after us ashore but probably most of all to the weather gods.
