2021 Marconi Keelboat Championships


The Marconi Keelboat Championships are to be held on Sunday 29th August in our fleet of SB20’s.

Six teams of both younger sailors and adults will race throughout the day following the British Keelboat League format and the winners will be presented with the prestigious Osea Cup and the youth Keelboat Championship trophy.

It’s going to be interesting to see who comes out on top as the summer regatta highlighted just how much progress some of our Keelboat sailors have been making.

  • Team X – Jason Clarke, Sam Featherstone, Mick Jones
  • Team T – Andy Perks, Dave Hewes, Peter Ward
  • Team Z – Jack Collis, David & Dan Nickalls, Hannah Bard
  • Team V – Fia & Oli Southgate, Tom Clayton

An over simplification of umpired fleet racing is:

  • If you think you break a rule = take a turn
  • If you are involved in a protest on the water and wait for the umpire decision and you lose = 2 turn
  • An umpire can allocate a penalty to a boat without another boat protesting = 2 turns

Races will be typically 15 minutes long, can you afford to get into a situation where you have to take penalty turns?
