Update from Class Chairman followed by Racing and Training in November

Update from Class Chairman followed by Racing and Training in November

Update From The Feva Class Chairman

It is three months since my chance meeting in Medemblik with Mr Webster where he convinced me of the benefits of becoming Chairman of the RS Feva Association.  

"You don't have to do anything" he said, "it is easy" he said, "Lucy does everything" he said.  Well one thing he got right, Lucy does everything!!

Seriously though, what a great class the RS Feva is; I think epitomised by the race team at Parkstone saying it was the most polite class they had ever had the pleasure of dealing with - well done to all our sailors for behaving in such a way that is noticed by "seasoned veterans" of the sport.

I thought I would give you all up update on what has been going on and invite you all to the committee meeting, which we will hold in the bar at Weymouth after sailing on the Saturday of the Winter Champs (have you all entered yet?).  I am keen that everyone has an opportunity to air their views; Parkstone comment was "great event but too many races for the younger competitors" which is fantastic feedback.

So what has been going on, a quick update:

1). We have formalised the class budgets for 2018 and will be projecting through 2019 to ensure we have a sound financial footing.  You will be pleased to know the finances are in great shape
2). We have made representations to the RYA about continued funding for the class and we were able to tell a brilliant story about how successful the class has become and how our past sailors have so impressively progressed in other classes
3). We have a new sponsor that will give additional funding to the class over the next couple of years, more on that soon
4). We have created a new regional training programme, funded by the class, which is open to all and covers many areas of the UK so please look for info on the website
5). You will hopefully have seen more posts on our website as we try to keep our pages current and report on news
6). We are looking at ways to refresh the website and make it more up to date.  We will happily take advice from any budding web designers

So some good progress on many fronts and your committee and regional representatives continue to work hard for the class.

Now to sailing, we are two Grand Prix down and they offered very varied conditions, light (or very light) in Northampton and strong (or very strong) in Parkstone.  But 14 great races were completed and well done to all the sailors who competed and well done to those who made our two squads.  For those that did not make the squads, look on the website because he have some great open training through the winter.

Unfortunately neither of our squads sailed the first weekend of training, too much wind!!  Hopefully that will change for the next weekend.  We have open training in various places the weekend of the 18/19th November (East coast if you fancy the Costa Del Burnham) and then the Winter Champs on the weekend of the 25/26th in Weymouth/Portland.  It will be great to see as many sailors at our final National Regatta of the year as possible and so please encourage all your club sailors to sign up.

By for now and see you all at Weymouth/Portland if not before.




Hi There

Just when you think the sailing is slowing down a bit and you look at the diary and see all the amazing opportunities the class committee and volunteers have been busy organising for our wonderful RS Feva sailors.

You don’t have to be selected for any squad to have access to great quality coaching weekends. Take a look at the weekend 18/19 November 2017 as a great example when we have Class Open Training in both North and East regions as well as some RYA Scotland organised training.


Northern Region Open Training is being headed up by the RS Feva classes very own RYA National Squad Head Coach Tim Rush and will take place at the home club of some of our very successful RS Feva sailors Leigh and Lowton SC.


East Region Open Training will take place at Royal Corinthian YC home club to our very own 2017 National Champ helm. A great weekend is organised with some superb coaches ready to deliver some great training. A great opportunity to get some practice in on the tidal waters there.


All our Open events are exactly that, open to all who want to take part, whatever your level, all are invited to enter. The class are really wanting to take the Open training to the next level and so your support to help this work is really encouraged and appreciated.


To close the season off we have our RS Feva Winter Championships at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy on 25th and 26th November, this weekend is also open to RS 200s so lots of fun to be had on the water. Entry will go up on 17th November so save yourself £10 and get entered and paid up..


Enough from me though!


See you all in Weymouth!

Northern Open Training in beautiful sinshine and perfect conditions

A full days sunshine and perfect conditions at Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club granted ten lucky Feva North sailors a  great days coaching with Paul Brotherton this weekend. He was assisted by Henry Rastrick as a junior coach, whom we anticipated may be kept busy as a fresh northeasterly breeze picked up just as the Fevas launched in the morning. However all the boats managed admirably, especially  the lightest pairing, Felix Stewart/Jake Harris from Windermere School.
After a restoring warm lunch and rest, Paul asked Tom Storey, who is part of the national squad, to explain the rigging set up on his boat to the sailors and parents. Then,after a quick run around the car park to boost energy levels, it was back on the water, the wind had dropped slightly and a super session was spent focussing on boat speed and decision making. Parents were rewarded for their efforts with a glorious walk around the reservoir in the autumn sun and then a grandstand view of the coaching from the clubhouse.
Our next Feva North open training is at Leigh&Lowton 18/19 November. Tim Rush (Head coach for NJS) has kindly offered to lead the weekend.

Feva Sailors Past and Present - What do they get up to when there are no Feva Events?


So our winter of squad and regional training is about to get underway, you might have thought a spot of homework was the order of the day on a quiet weekend in October.

Alas no, we had Feva sailors past and present competing in events around the country and demonstrating what a diverse and talented bunch of sailors the Feva Class creates.

Firstly, the 29er fleet were at one of their Grand Prix events at Datchet Water.  It is fair to say the top ten finishers looked like a who's who of ex Feva sailors with 15 of the 20 sailors in the top 10 coming from the RS Feva Class! Two special mentions; firstly, to Henry Jameson and Toby Atherton who not only won the event but won by 20 points which is an unbelievable margin.  Henry only left the Feva fleet last year but obviously made a welcome return as a Pro-Am at the Nationals and showing brotherly love at the Worlds.  Also, another special mention to Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger, they only left the Feva fleet after the Worlds this summer and finished 5th in the 40 plus strong fleet.  What a fantastic performance, well-done boys.

In Oxford there were hundreds of children taking part in the Eric Twiname Team Racing Championship event with both schools and clubs being represented.  The Junior Championship was competed in Fevas so it was no surprise to see many our current sailors there.  After the round robins were over, the final four teams included two club teams with names that many will recognise such as Tom Storey from Yorkshire Dales SC and Issy Spurway, Robbie McDonald and Dilly Ala representing Hayling Island Sailing Club then those representing their school including 2016 RS Feva World Champion Helm William Pank to name a few. Well done to all our Feva sailors, you clearly demonstrated that straight line speed is not your only skill!!


And finally, to current RS Feva National Champions Ben and Lucy who recovered from a race one, pre- start broken halyard in the Endeavour Cup "Champion of Champions" event to finish 16th overall out of a fleet of 30 Current National Champions (not to mention a few Olympic Squad sailors) and top Junior boat.  Once again demonstrating the quality of sailors we have in our fleet.


Well done to all our sailors on some truly great performances and good luck to all our sailors heading into the first winter training weekend.  I only hope the long range forecast I have seen is not correct........!!!

Grand Prix 2 at Parkstone YC

Parkstone Yacht Club and Poole Harbour was the venue of the second in the 2017/18 RS Feva Grand Prix series and the final event for the Winter Squad selection.

Having left quiet and shifty Northampton two weeks ago, the forty sailors arrived to a blustery and cloudy Poole Harbour for a weekend that promised much more wind and a few more waves.  The PRO decided that four races a day was achievable and so an eight race series with two discards was the aim and with some excellent race management and pretty well behaved (albeit tired) sailors, that was achieved.

The conditions were certainly challenging, as evidenced by Ben Hutton-Penman and Abi Jayasekara (Corinthian Otters) who rounded the windward mark first in race 1 only to put their kite up and be blown flat!  Others were a little more careful as they went round and the race was finally won by Alice Davis and Alastair Brown (Great Moor SC) continuing their Northampton form, 2nd were Tom Storey and Rupert Jameson (Yorkshire Dales/HISC) and 3rd William and Becky Craiger (Sevenoaks School).  Race 2 quickly followed and this time it was Freddy Woods and Lucy Hewitson (HISC) who finished first, William and Becky were 2nd and Ben and Abi, recovering from their first race dunking, in 3rd.

By race 3 all the teams were getting in their stride and the wind strength had moderated but was still a good breeze which created a few waves in Poole.  Ben and Abi won this one, followed by an extremely consistent William and Becky with Tom and Rupert 3rd.  Race 4 and the final race of the day saw some tired crews battling it out.  Robbie McDonald and Teddy Ferguson (HISC/Windermere School) sailed very well to win with William and Becky finishing 2nd (though subsequently had to take a penalty) and Ben and Abi 3rd.  So at the end of day one it was tight at the top with Ben and Abi just leading but on equal points with Willian and Becky.

Day 2 had lots of wind and lots of rain in the forecast!!  In the end the former was relatively moderate but the latter did prove pretty wet!!!  Robbie and Teddy were straight out of the blocks and starting where they left off the previous day with a 1st, they were followed home by Freddy and Lucy with a great 3rd place going to Tom Burke and Theo Stewart (Coniston SC/Windermere School).  Top places in races 6 and 7 were shared between three boats, Ben and Abi were sailing consistently and finished both in 1st place, Robbie and Teddy finished 2nd and 3rd and Tom and Rupert 3rd and 2nd.  And so to the final race which saw tired crews and a bit of a change at the front with Annie Hammett and Emma Wells (HISC) winning, 2nd place went to Freddy and Lucy and 3rd to Alexander Ratsey and Issy Spurway (RWYC/Bowmoor/HISC).

So the final count saw consistency pay for Ben and Abi with a net score of 13 after six counting races, 2nd were Freddy and Lucy on 17 and 3rd Robbie and Teddy on 18.  The first girl team was Annie and Emma and the Endeavour prize for great sailing in tough conditions to Rosie Hobbs and Tasha Danbacher (Sevenoaks School).

A huge thank you to Angie, Brian, Matt and all at Parkstone Yacht Club for a great weekend.  But also a huge thank you to a great group of sailors who sailed extremely well in very tough conditions, finished eight races in a weekend and were complemented by the PRO team as being one of the most polite and well behaved classes they have dealt with which is testament to the children and the class in general.

So the totals are being counted now and Squad places will be issued shortly, next stop for the Fevas are the Winter Championships at Weymouth and Portland Academy on 25/26th November and we look forward to seeing everyone there.  In the meantime, there are open training opportunities to hone your skills so take a look at the Class website.

RS Feva Volvo Grand Prix Series Round 1 at Northampton Sailing Club

The 2017/18 RS Feva Volvo Grand Prix Series started with a weekend at Northampton Sailing Club on the 16th and 17th September.  A fleet of 40 boats attended with this Grand Prix also doubling up as one of the indicators for the winter training squads which include the RYA UK Junior Squad, RYA Zone Squads and the Feva Class National Squad.  In addition, sailors attending all six Grand Prix events will benefit from coach support at the 2018 Europeans to be held in Weymouth.



New pairings and new faces were the order of the weekend as this is the time of year when the class sees sailors transition, pairings change and new young sailors joining.  Principal Race Officer Miles Odell’s briefing outlined all that the fresh faced and very enthusiastic sailors needed to know for the 6 races to follow and all set out to the race course in a light but steady breeze. 

Race 1 saw sibling team William and Becky Caiger (Sevenoaks School) get off the blocks well and win, Sophie Dennis and Olivia Bracey-Davis (Hayling Island Sailing Club) were second and Tom Storey (Yorkshire Dales Sailing Club) and birthday boy Rupert Jameson (Hayling Island Sailing Club) finished 3rd.

Race 2 quickly followed, new team Alice Davis and Alastair Brown (Great Moor Sailing Club) showed the fleet how to sail the shifty conditions with a great win, they were followed home by Ben Hutton-Penman and Abi Jayasekara (Corinthian Otters), who had struggled in the first race, with William and Becky again up there in 3rd.



Following a course reset to allow for the shifty conditions, Race 3 started in a building breeze and it was Tom and Rupert who lead from start to finish with Ben and Abi chasing in 2nd and Alexander Ratsey (RWSC) and Issy Spurway (Bowmoor SC/ HISC) in 3rd.



The forecast for Sunday looked light and with a constant breeze the race committee decided to get a fourth race in and trigger a discard.  The race started in a good breeze but this started to drop soon after the start and swung which made it a challenging race for all.  However the front boats kept their concentration and finished well with the race time, those that didn't finished were whiskied.  Ben And Abi held their nerve in the shifting conditions and showed the fleet a real masterclass in light wind sailing, reading the shifts and keeping their concentration from beginning to end to take the win and with it the overnight lead, Ralph Nevile and Luke Anstey (Frensham Pond) were clearly comfortable in the shifty conditions and finished 2nd with Josh Davis and Ian Ratnage (Sevenoaks School) 3rd


Further down the fleet there was confusion as the shortened course sound and flag was misread by some as an abandonment which led to some not sailing the course and having to retire, others decided they would propel their boats by any means possible given the light conditions.  There are always lessons to be learn't as this is a junior class, the following morning a full debrief of race 4 was completed by the Principal Race Officer and the Feva Class Chairman which led to voluntary retirements from very sporting sailors who realised they had either sailed the wrong course or who had not always relied solely on wind propulsion.  Everyone then took to the water happy and many with a clearer understanding of flags and sounds!


Two races were the order of the day for Sunday in a light but reasonably constant breeze, race 5 had Tom and Rupert winning, a fantastic result for Caitlin Morley (Burnham Sailing Club) and Joe Blaker (Benfleet Sailing Club) in 2nd and Robbie MacDonald and Teddy Ferguson (HISC/Windermere School) in 3rd.


The final race was sailed in very light and shifty conditions with three teams in with a shout for the overall title.  The race was lead from start to finish by Ben Tuttle and Jakey Wood (Hayling Island Sailing Club), who opened out a huge lead, and whilst Regatta leaders Ben and Abi and contenders William and Becky got bogged down in the fleet in the shifty conditions, Tom and Rupert sailed an excellent race finishing second and with it taking the overall win.  In 3rd place finished birthday girl Alice and Alastair which ensured a great end to their very well sailed Regatta.

So the top three were Tom and Rupert in 1st, Ben and Abi in 2nd and William and Becky in 3rd.  The Endeavour prize went to the very young twin pairing of Rosie and Susie Sheahan who sailed a great first Regatta in very difficult conditions.



The next Feva Grand Prix is the weekend of the 30th September/1st October at Parkstone Yacht Club.  The organisers are busy working to deliver a super weekend for all with sailor’s supper and prize giving tea all included in the entry price!  If you fancy joining us then entry is open on the RS Feva UK website.

Introducing the new UK RS Feva Class Association Chairman

Hello Everyone

I thought I would introduce myself as the new RS Feva Class Chairman.  My name is Nick Hutton-Penman and my son Ben has been sailing a Feva for about a year now.  We are located in Burnham-On-Crouch, Essex where we have a thriving and building Feva class.

Whilst Ben's Feva career has been relatively short, I have been involved in the class for a number of years as my elder two children have both competed, in fact our first family Feva event was the Abersoch Nationals in 2011.  We have since competed in various Grand Prix, Nationals and Worlds before taking a break as there is a five year age gap between Ben and his older sister Kathryn (who some of you may have met in Medemblik as the Corinthian Otter support coach).

Having come back into the class, I am amazed at how the standard throughout the whole fleet has improved.  In 2011, whilst the front of the fleet was as competitive as it is today, there was a significant gap in ability across the whole fleet.  This gap has been much reduced and I believe that is down to two key factors:

1). The accessibility to good training for all levels of ability in the RS Feva class, and
2). A very active Class Association that looks to promote the boat and all sailors throughout the fleet

I have not had much time to chat to people since being convinced to take on the role but I will look to do so as we move into September and the events start again.  I am however very keen to hear what you all have to say so if anyone has any thoughts/ideas that they would like to share then please do not hesitate to contact me, my details are below.

I am pleased to take on the responsibility of Class Chairman and I would like to thank Jonathan Webster for his guidance of the class as Chairman.  My focus for the next year will be to ensure we maintain a thriving class that is seen as the main pathway boat for asymmetric sailing and that we maintain a coordinate training programme that is assessable to all.  I would also like to ensure that our various events give opportunities for all to compete and win prizes, very much supporting the "Pro-Am" concept that Jonathan created for the 2017 Nationals.

I would like to wish you all a great rest of the summer and looking forward to seeing you all in September when we commence our Grand Prix and selection series.

With every best regards

RS Feva World Championships Final Day

The dinghy park was buzzing on the final day of the RS Feva World Championships presented by PA Consulting and Allen Sailboat hardware. This championship was still wide open as there was only one point separating first and second place in Gold fleet. Henry and Rupert Jameson (GBR) were leading overnight from Eli Liefting and Rose Dickson (NZL) by that one point.



The fleet were released from the beach in overcast condition with 8-10 knots on the race course. The PRO wasted no time in getting the Gold fleet away.



Eli and Rose nailing a bullet in the first race today gave them a one point advantage going into the final race, as Team Jameson finished third behind Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger (GBR).


Silver and Bronze fleets were also away on the course with very tight racing. Leading the Silver fleet was GBR's Tim and Abby Hire, and at the front of the Bronze fleet was the Czech paring of Štepán Mann and Jan Richter. The Silver fleet offered fantastic entertainment, where spectators felt as if you could throw a tea towel over the entire fleet at any one time. 60 boats would round each mark in less than a minute!


So after seven fantastic races in Gold fleet it would simply come down to the last race: Eli and Rose against Team Jameson. In simple terms Eli and Rose needed to beat Team Jameson on the water, or Team Jameson needed to win to guarantee the championship. As they went up the first beat both boats had clearly been nervous of starting and were buried in the pack.


At the first windward mark Eli and Rose had dragged themselves out of trouble, up into fifth place, with Team Jameson rounding in 22nd.

By the time the fleet had reached across to the outer loop Team Jameson had made up ten places, to twelfth, but at the second windward mark they were unable to improve their position. At the final leeward mark Eli and Rose rounded in fifth, five places ahead of Team Jameson, and simply needed to sail a short beat to the finish to be named World Champions.


For the first time in ten RS Feva championships the trophy has gone to the Southern hemisphere, with Eli and Rose being crowned overall RS Feva World Champions 2017. Team Jameson were second, and Pierce and Alfie took third.


Sian Talbot and Eloise Clapson McBride (GBR) had a fantastic week and were named RS Feva Ladies World Champions.


The Junior category was won by Austrians Johanna Böckl and Benjamin Kogard.

VOLVO RS FEVA Grand Prix 4/4
Volvo RS Feva Grand Prix 


The fourth and final RS Feva Grand Prix at Whitstable Yacht Club started with excellent conditions. 


Saturday morning brought light yet sailable wind and non-stop sunshine making the day lovely for both on land and shore. On the water, the first race was a light one with large shifts and patchy wind providing an tactical race for all sailors. Tom Storey and Ollie Kent Yorkshire Dales SC won this followed by Alice Davis and Alastair Brown Great Moor SC and Sophie Johnson and Becky Caiger Blackwater SC and Sevenoaks School. The second race provided more wind with close racing and a difficult start line. Will Caiger and Caitlin Morley Sevenoaks School and Burnham SC took the race win, Tom and Ollie 2nd and Sophie and Becky in 3rd. The final race of Saturday had much the same conditions with wind still building causing a tight finish with Tom and Ollie just beating Sophie Johnson and Becky Caiger. 


Saturday evening gave us a beautiful sunset and a warm marquee for sailors to checkout they're sun tan, or burn in many cases. Whitstable town’s restaurants and shops provided much entertainment for the majority of the sailors throughout the evening.


Sunday morning didn't seem hopeful with patchy wind and strong tide, however gradually the wind filled in to a nice North-Easterly covering the course. As race 4 started the wind dropped off completely, swung round 180 degrees and picked up again meaning the race officers attempt at race 4 had to be abandoned. Once the wind had filled in on the opposite direction the race team quickly re-laid a course, race 4 was on the way again. Large shifts and on and off wind meant hard but interesting sailing eventually ending with Tom and Ollie taking first,William Caiger and Caitling Morley in 2nd and Ethan Gerrell and Tom Barnes from Queen Mary SC and Royla Torbay SC in 3rd.


The final race provided us with much the same. As before Tom and Ollie took the first with Will and Caitlin in second. This meant, once all boats were ashore and the bananas donated to the sailors were kindly distributed, Tom and Ollie took first in both the overall Grand Prix series and the Whitstable event with Will and Caitlin second in the event and Sophie and Becky in third.


The UK RS Feva Class Association would like to thank Whitstable YC for a super weekend, the club and surroundings allowed all those who made the journey to have a super time, the event management was top class and the members of the club made all competitors and their families feel very welcome.


Next for the RS Feva class, the BIG one the RS Feva WORLD Championships in Medemblik – Netherlands!

Inalnd Championships at Draycote Water

Draycote Water Sailing Club played host to the RS Feva class for the RS Feva Inland Championships. The forecast was set to be a challenge with fairly decent conditions for Saturday but very light for Sunday. PRO Ally Jones briefed the fleet and set to the water to complete as many races as possible in 1 day taking the heat off for the Sunday given the forecast and taking full advantage of the superb sunshine but light wind! 


Race 1 and the fleet all behaved on the start line with all clear. The middle of the fleet suffered from lack of clear air and there was many a melee on the marks! It was Sian Talbot and Elouise Clapson McBride from Leigh and Lowton SC who read the shifts and found the right part of the course on every leg who took the win, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger Windermere School followed in 2nd and Matt Taylor and Will Carron from Brightlingsea and Burnham Squiddies in 3rd


Race 2 and the wind still giving enough to keep the racing going. Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson from Wormit Boating Club and Windermere School finished 1st, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger had another 2nd and William Pank and Finlay Campbell Norfolk Broads Yacht Club in 3rd.


The final race before a break for lunch and luckily, we still had a gentle breeze. Blake Wilson Southport Yacht Club Australia and Sam Dickinson from Hayling Island Sailing club recovered from their black flag in race 2 to take the win, Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson came in 2nd and National Champion Ben Hutton Penman with a crew Abi Jayasekara from Corinthian Otters came in 3rd.


After a break for lunch the sailors headed out again and PRO Ally Jones had every intention to try and get in as many races as possible, the fleet a little over keen on the black flag start with 10 boats being called over the line and therefore sitting out of the race.


New faces at the front but not to the fleet showing their winter of training has really paid off was Quinn Edmonds and Fin Oliver of Chew Valley Lake SC, 2nd Jamie Rastrick and Madeline Bristow Yorkshire Dales SC and 3rd Matt Taylor and Will Carron.


Final race for the day and another 6 black flags! Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson finish the day with a 1st, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger in 2nd and a great recovery from the black flag disqualification in race 4 for Freddy Wood and Phoebe Peters finishing in 3rd


Sunday was as expected light and hot, so very hot! An indefinite postponement resulted in an abandonment and so it would be Ewan Wilson Wormit Boating Club Teddy Ferguson from Windermere School who take the title of RS Feva Inland National Champions. Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger of Windermere School took 2nd overall and Sian Talbot and Elouise Clapson McBride Leigh and Lowton SC finished 3rd over all and 1st Girls. First Mixed team went to Freddy Woods and Phoebe Peters Hayling Island Sailing Club.

RS Feva Vice Chairman Ian Jameson thanked the Draycote SC team for all their support to the class and hard work to help make the event a success, Principal Race Officer Ally Jones and his race team and all the competitors and their families and supporters for attending the event

PA Consulting UK RS Feva National Championship 2017

The PA Consulting UK RS Feva National Championships was expertly hosted by Royal Torbay YC.

222 sailors from around the country descend on Sunny Torbay aka Torbados for what was set to be a superb 4 days of racing. The event set to have 2 days, 6 races of qualifying and then the all-important Championship series with a further 6 races scheduled. Each series would allow the teams to discard their worst score, but qualification rank would be carried to Championship series and cannot be discarded.

There are many titles to fight it out for at a Feva National Championship and this year a new category was introduced, the idea of current Class Chairman Jonathan Webster the category named the Pro-Am would see Ex-RS Feva sailors, or "Pros" return to the fleet accompanied by a young inexperienced sailor who has never competed in an RS Feva before. Current 29er and RS 200 sailors as well as some keen Dads a couple of sibling teams and a Mum made their guest appearances back in the fleet, giving their young crews a real life experience of racing in this highly competitive event.

PRO Bill Butcher and his teams slick race management allowed little waiting around and racing kicked off. Sailors enjoyed really superb racing if a little windy for some. Flights 1 saw Henry Chandler and 2016 National Champion crew Louis Johnson, both of Hayling Island Sailing Club come in 1st, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger Windermere School in 2nd and Sophie Dennis and Delphine Ala from Hayling Island Sailing Club 3rd. Meanwhile, Ben Hutton-Penman of Corinthian Otters and Lucy Hewitson of Hayling Island Sailing Club started their event with a race win, Tom Storey and Ollie Kent, Yorkshire Dales SC came in 2nd with brothers Harrison and Fergus Pye Draycote SC in 3rd.

Race 2 and a mix up of flights, meaning sailors race against a new batch of competition and its Henry Chandler and Louis Johnson, who take a 2nd win of the day followed by Ben Hutton-Penman and Lucy Hewitson and Ewan Wilson from Wormit Boating Club and Teddy Ferguson of Windermere School in 3rd. The Pye brothers took race win in the other flight race with Matt Taylor and Will Carron Brightlingsea SC and Burnham Squiddies in second and Jamie Rastrick Yorkshire Dales SC and Madeline Bristow from Leigh and Lowton SC in 3rd.

Wind still up and sailors beginning to tire for race 3 and a second race win for the day for Ben Hutton-Penman and Lucy Hewitson, Dylan McPherson and Dylan Collingbourne from Burnham SC in 2nd place and Father and daughter team Richie Bailey and 7-year-old KT Bailey in 3rd. Henry Chandler and Louis Johnson finished their day with a clean sweep and banked another 1st. William Caiger Sevenoaks School and Caitlin Morley Burnham SC took 2nd and Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger came in 3rd.

Day 2 can only be described as frustrating! Race team and sailors faced light shifting winds making laying a course a challenge, to say the least! Conditions gradually improved only to go light again for the final flights finish, quite a contrast to Saturday's windy conditions so this makes qualifying a true test of the sailor's abilities across all conditions. We did see some seriously impressive racing for the final day of qualifying with a standout performance in race 4 by Freddy Woods and Phoebe Peters Hayling Island Sailing Club winning the race by a whopping 3 minutes!

Bank Holiday Monday and the fleet now divided into Gold and Silver the pressure building for all. The day started with a postponement due to lack of wind and thick sea mist, sailors spent the time chilling out, chatting and playing cricket. Visibility improved enough to launch the fleet only to roll very quickly back, forcing the fleet to turn back to the safety of the boat park for a little while longer. When finally the mist lifted and the wind started to come in the fleet launched and made their way to the race course. With the building breeze throughout the afternoon sailors were treated to some more fantastic racing. Race 1 of the Championship series and it's Ben Hutton-Penman and Lucy Hewitson 1st, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger in 2nd followed by Pro-Am team Henry Jameson Hayling Island SC and 10 year old Jake Harris from Windermere School (and Pierce Harris little brother!) in 3rd.

Silver fleet and it was Tonbridge School Max Beverly and Sam Rawlins takes the win, Pro-Am team Harry Jones and Robert Byne from Draycote followed by father-son team Jon and Frankie Ellis Keyhaven in 3rd.

Matt Taylor and Will Carron win race 2 of the day with Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson in 2nd and Katherine Byne and Phoebe Jones Draycote SC and Burnham Squiddies taking 3rd.

The Silver fleet saw a change at the top with Joe Slipper and Tea Sirolla of Queen Mary SC and local sailors Julia Barnes and Emily Jansen RTYC 2nd followed by Issy Leach and Libby Petit Rutland SC in 3rd.

Conditions by this time are really hotting up for the final race of the day. Pye brothers come over the line in 1st with Henry Chandler and Louis Johnson in 2nd and Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger in 3rd.

Silver fleet had a change in the top 2 again with Sam Edwards an Amelia Greene Hayling Island Sailing Club 1st, Julia Staite and Raulf Berry Hayling Island Sailing Club in 2nd and Harry Jones and Robert Byne in 3rd.

Final day and it's all to play for in both fleets. It was an early start for all, the conditions great and no waiting around, launching as slick as ever thanks to the superb team on beach and we saw the fleets head out to finish the championship and secure their titles. After nine races in very tough conditions, the final three races were played out in ever strengthening and shifty conditions which definitely challenged all the sailors across both fleets. With the maths done, teams knew exactly what they had to do.

First race of the day was silver fleet, race 4 of the series it was Julia Staite and Raulf Berry who kicked off with a 1st, Harry Jones and Robert Byne in 2nd and Max Beverly and Sam Rawlins in 3rd.

Gold fleet and it was tight at the top, Pierce Harris and Alfie Cogger start the day as the leaders with a 1 point lead to Ben Hutton-Penman and Lucy Hewitson. Ewan Wilson and Teddy Ferguson finish the race in 1st, Pierce and Alfie in 2nd and Ben and Lucy came in 3rd, this would equalize the top 2 putting Ben and Lucy at the top of the board on count back.

Silver fleet and Julia Staite and Raulf berry banked another 2nd and another new name in the top 3 it was Sandy Bailey and Jack Francis from Exe SC in 3rd

Golds, a tough race for the leaders of the championship with both top boats on the wrong side of a shift, both Ben and Lucy and Pierce and Alfie found themselves down in 11th and 10th place, this was to be both teams discard for the championship. It was Tom Storey and Ollie Kent taking race 5 win followed by Pro-Am team Henry Jameson and Jack Harris and Sophie Dennis and Delphine Ala in 3rd.

Golds Race 6 and it was all to play for. Henry Chandler and Louis Johnson finished their event with a 1st, Dylan and Dylan came over in 2nd and Tom and Ollie in 3rd. It was Ben and Lucy who followed in 4th with Pierce and Alfie in 8th, this would be enough of a gap between race leaders to give Ben and Lucy the RS Feva National Championship 2017 title.

To say the racing at the top was tight would be an understatement, indeed the standard across the fleet was incredibly high and extremely competitive. This is a class to be truly proud of and on behalf of the UK RS Feva Class Association Committee and the team at RS Sailing we would like to thank all the competitors, their families and supporters for making the class such a wonderful place, we would also like to thank the team at Royal Torbay YC for a tremendous few days, superb hospitality and faultless race management. We would also like to thank our fantastic Sponsors PA Consulting who have been a huge support to the class over the past 3 years, again this year the class has been able to give every competitor a PA Consulting and RS Feva branded top quality dry bag which proved a to be very popular with all our competitors, it has been super to be able to award all our competitors something so special.

Congratulations to our new National Champions
