21-24th September 2023
The class National Championships took place over 4 days in Portland. 50 boats signed in for the event and the early arrivals were greeted by Storm Nigel with lashing rain and high winds. After this there was excellent racing conditions out in Weymouth Bay until the next storm arrived on Saturday resulting in a wild and windy race in the harbour.

Day 3: After the champagne, the flat lemonade! Day 4: Consistent wind again!
Day 3 was a day when the battle between the northerly and the sea breeze ended in a win for the north. Result: many unexpected results and only 3 races run. A struggle of a day for sailors and the Race Officer.
Day 4 started fine with a forecast southerly that got augmented by a sea breeze. 3 races no problem! Graham Vials and Chris Turner are 2022 National Champions.
Day 2 sun and breeze - all a sailor could ask for
Today we had the three planned races in a freshening sea breeze. Champagne conditions by the end.
