Ralph Nevile and Tom Stratton Brown win for Eggar's

Last week Itchenor Sailing Club held its  67th Schools Sailing Week. There were ideal conditions in Chichester Harbour for almost 300 competitors in Fevas and Fireflys from across the country. 

After practice day on Sunday,  Ralph and Tom started competition for real on Monday and Tuesday, sailing against 90 competitors in the Feva class. By Tuesday morning they were firmly in the lead. This lead was consolidated in 3 further races and neither crews from Weydon nor Portsmouth Grammar were able to overhaul it.

The full RS Feva results were as follows:                                                                                                                 1st Ralph Nevile and Tom Stratton Brown - Eggar's School
2nd Tom and Tristan Ahlheid - Weydon School
3rd Ben and Tommy Millard - Portsmouth Grammar School

Congratulations boys - fantastic effort!
