ISO Inlands / Gala - Datchet Water SC (21st & 22nd October 2000)

The ISO Inland Championship was held at Datchet water on 21st and 22nd October. On Saturday three races were held back to back in a dull force two, gusting three. In the first race Mike Speller and Katie Keam-George led round the windward mark, pursued by Andrew Gould and Vicky Lewis, 'Team RWO' John Caig and Pete Lindley, Charles Chandler and Adam Savage. These four pulled clear of the main pack with positions constantly changing. 'Team RWO' won followed by Speller, Gould and Chandler, with Mike Perry in fifth.

The second race started in slightly more wind with the same four boats pulling away from the main fleet. Gould eventually won followed by Speller with 'Team RWO' just beating Chandler into third and Perry again fifth.

Gould led the third race around the windward mark, with some close exciting mark-rounding behind. Gould and Chandler pulled clear of the chasing pack with Gould leading all the way round but being overtaken by Chandler on the final beat up to the finish. Speller pulled through to third followed by Penny Gorton and Brian Greensmith in fourth with 'Team RWO' in fifth.

Sunday was dull, damp and foggy with no wind; after an hour long postponement, racing was abandoned for the day, leaving Andrew Gould and Vicky Lewis as the ISO inland champions for the year 2000.
