Kev Greenslade and Zara Davis win UKWA speed championships two years in succession.
UKWA National Speed championships sponsored by Spartan wetsuits took place at Weymouth Speed week last week and delivered the goods in terms of wind. Racing took place over seven days with Monday and Tuesday being the best.
We had 34 UKWA entrants this year for the Spartan Wetsuits UKWA Speed Trophy including the cream of the UK sailors making an appearance and racing was close. Kevin Greenslade took the top spot for a second year on the trot ahead of speed specialist from Guernsey Martin Ogier in 2nd place and Ant Baker hoping for a Speed and Slalom double had to settle for third. Zara Davis won for the ladies for a record 4th time and came a creditable 10th in the overall UKWA rankings.
