Good Easter Weekend for TeamOrigin

Bright sunshine and decent wind gave the competitors in the RORC Easter Challenge a final day to remember. Eddie Warden Owen, Chief Executive of the RORC was out on the water coaching everyday and commented after the conclusion of racing.

“Today was brilliant, stunning weather, decent breeze, shifting both ways, classic west Norwest Solent conditions with the breeze coming down the Solent and out of Southampton Water. Early bias on the left gave way to advantage on the right. Great sailing and a real challenge for the competitors.”

TEAMORIGIN Rio won the class by some distance but that is not why they came.

Mike Sanderson, Team Director of TEAMORIGIN, summed up the RORC Easter Challenge, “It’s been huge value for TEAMORIGIN to be here, we’ve had everything from 10 to 30 knots! When we showed up a few days ago we were pretty rough around the edges and by the last race today we were starting to make it happen as a team, for sure a very important team building exercise for us all. The Solent, as ever, has proven itself to be a great training ground with its variety of tides conditions and wind strengths. Many thanks to RORC and all the other competitors for making it such a great event.”

Johnny Vincent’s TP52, Pace was second and Grey, Laidlaw & Hayward’s Farr 52, Bob was sailed well all week and picked up third.
