Merlin Rocket Nationals – Day 1 or BFD day

Chris Jennings and Pete Horn of Burghfield SC survived the four recalled starts before the fleet finally got away to win the first race of the Merlin Rocket Nationals at Whitstable.

Second were Ben Saxton and George Yeoman, a nose ahead of Tim Fells and Oli Wells with Simon Potts and Luke Shaw a couple of boat lengths back in fourth.

Several major players were removed by the eagle eyed start team: including Nick Craig, Jasper Barnham, Ollie Turner, Ian Sharps and Jon Gorringe, who were all named as trigger happy helms.
