RYA North Zone Championships
Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club 27/28 September 2014
While other Zone Championships were struggling with light or no breeze, North Zone was lucky to have a decent breeze of 12-15 knots on Saturday, as 17 Optimist Main fleet sailors took to the water, racing on the same course as 27 Toppers and 19 Tera Sport’s. Each fleet raced with separate starts, with Optimists and Tera’s using Inner loop and Toppers on the outer loop. 3 races were held back to back at the far end of Derwent Reservoir, with all competitors taking lunch with them. At the end of Saturdays racing, the top positions were held by the older and more experienced North Zone Squad sailors, with Kamran in 9th position, following 3 consistent results.
Sunday morning was much calmer (almost a dead calm), but thankfully, by the time the competitors were ready to launch the wind had built to a steady 5-8 knots. The course was set a little closer to the Sailing club, although competitors still needed to take lunch with them. Despite usually preferring bigger winds, Kamran upped his game on Sunday and achieved two seventh places and a sixth, moving him up to 7th overall.

He is now waiting anxiously to find out if he has gained a Zone Squad place for 2014/2015.
