Two great days of racing at the Volvo End of Season Championships at Datchet Water SC this weekend. The 73 boats of the main fleet of RS100s, RS200s, RS300s, RS400s, RS500s and RS800s raced on the far side of the lake while the 42 RS Fevas and 43 RS Teras, pro and sport rigs, raced closer to shore in full view of the eager shoreside audience.

It was a truly inspiring sight to see so many different shape and size RS dinghies being handled so well by different age and stature sailors across pretty much the whole range of sailable weather the UK has to offer. The weekend’s conditions ranged from 29 knots on Saturday to zero knots on Sunday keeping everyone concentrating throughout. The DWSC race team worked really hard to make sure everyone was given top class racing.

We were superbly looked after by the Volvo team who hosted a colouring competition and remote-controlled car driving for the young shoreside supporters and real car test driving for the adults. Team Volvo sailor and London 2012 Olympic silver medallist, Luke Patience competed in the RS200 fleet, hosted a question and answer session and presented all the prizes.

The photos used here were taken by Jonathan and Beverley at LPB Aerial Imagery – www.lpbaerial.com – plus there were other photos taken by DWSC member Tristan Beckett on both days which you can see in two separate albums, one per day at: www.tristanbeckettphotography.co.uk

Thank you to everyone involved for making it such a great big fun RS family racing weekend!
