RM Championship 2017 hosted by Ayr Bay at Greenock – 2nd September 2017

Race report by Pat Johnston

Beautiful weather on Saturday 2nd September greeted everyone attending the re-run of the RM Championships hosted by Ayr Bay. The event had previously been postponed and subsequently transferred to Greenock as Irvine was still weeded. The wind was classic Greenock, being light north-easterly flipping to moderate south-westerly and eventually flipping back to easterly at the end of the last of the twelve races that were completed. This contributed to the race team led by PRO Pat Johnston having an interesting day!

Four boats were entered. Unfortunately, Gordon Winton was unable to start having suffered electrical gremlins. This left John Taylor, Robert Rooney and Gordon Neil battling out the day. The boats were closely matched and by the lunch break after race six, the scores were level between John and Robert, each with three wins.

The afternoon belonged to John Taylor who magically found wonderful lifts at key moments and scored six more wins. This score might suggest a walk-over but in reality, all the races could have been won by any of the competitors with plenty of lead changes all afternoon, great battling and good spectator sport.

Final positions were:
1 John Taylor
2 Robert Rooney
3 Gordon Neil
