Developing Solo sails with Richard Lovering Hyde Sails

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Hyde Sails are committed to working and racing within class to improve sail designs.

Our Head Sail Designer Richard Lovering is looking to work his magic from previous classes such as the F15 in the Solo class. Read below on an update from the recent Solo Nationals.

 

The Solo Nationals were held at the Royal Torbay Yacht club from the 8th July to the 14th July.  We had 90 boats competing in this Nationals with boats coming over from Holland to take part. With very little time in the boat to develop my sails and get used to sailing the boat  I was aiming for a top 12 result and would have been very happy with a top 10. I knew Torbay was going to be a very challenging place to sail as the wind mainly comes from the land causing it to be shifty. With 6 sailing days 2 race a day it was going to be a long week! We had big wind shifts and pressure across the race course which made it very hard to get right. I manage to achieve my goal of the week and finished in 8th place which I was very happy with. I will be working on a new sail in the next few weeks with some small tweaks I would like to make to my sails.  All in all I had a great week and met many new friends and look forward to doing more racing.
