Dart 18 Open at WYC - Report

Whitstable Yacht Club welcomed the Dart 18 fleet for GP7, which was the last TT event of the Dart 18 season, and the last Open event hosted by WYC in 2018! 28 boats entered, including travellers from as far afield as Yorkshire, with the Dart 18 showing its diversity and ability to attract sailors from across age ranges, and including all male, all female, mixed crews and single-handers. Despite only two races, Whitstable Yacht Club demonstrated once again it's ability to run a quality event, and be a popular destination for sailors and their families! Overall results from the two races saw Rob and Fi from Worthing Sailing Club take the undisputed first place overall, with Dan and Alyesha from Isle of Sheppey Sailing Club in a well deserved second. David and Chris from Portsmouth SC consistently stayed at the top of the fleet, with their 5th and 3rd place putting them in third overall. Top Whitstable Yacht Club boat was Abby and David , and the first single hander was Tony, also from WYC! Full results can be seen at wyc.org.uk/on-the-water/results.
Thanks to all of the volunteers and staff from Whitstable Yacht Club for working hard to put on the event, and thanks to the travelling Dart 18 fleet for coming to the club and being such a friendly bunch!
