ISO Gala - Brightlingsea SC (20th & 21st May 2000)

May 20th / 21st and the ISO class arrived at Brightlingsea SC for the third event in the Multi Gala series. First race and laughter spread through the fleet as national champions Mike Speller and Rob Burridge sailing Team RBRC, hit and hooked the windward mark round the rudder, dragging it 50 yards down wind, despite this slight hiccup, they went on to win, with Alistair Clarke and Pete Lindley aboard Team RWO, second. Team RBRC confidently went on to win the remaining two races of the day with local boys Jeremy Newman and Geoff Gritton sailing Team IES, second in both races.

Sunday and Pin end boys John Payne and Geoff Creese left the fleet standing on the start but were eventually caught by Xtremity sailed by David Cockerill and Guy Ellis from Emsworth Slipper. With a big windshift during the fifth race, the fleet positions were thrown around with Team RWO coming out on top, just finishing in front of Team IES. The final race of the weekend and Team RBRC took line honours with Xtremity in a close second.
