Burnham Week got off to a great start with 20 of the remaining 22 Royal Burnham One Designs making the start line. It is ceratinly the class to be in for hot racing and great parties as they celebrate being 80 years young.
The racing was very tight on the first Saturday. In a good breeze Onyx won the race shortly followed by Blue Jacket and Annette filling the other top spots.
Race Two had the fleet starting upwind in a westerly direction. Amanda was just around the first mark ahead of Onyx and she managed to hold on to win but she was pushed all the way by Annette, Blue Jacket and Quartz. Onyx only dropped down the fleet after it was thought she might have touched a mark, she took the penalty just to be sure it didnt result in a protest.
Race Three was another tight battle. Red Jacket sailed clear to win the day and was followed on to the podium by Blue Jacket and Quartz.
Blue Jacket sailed fast all weekend and her consistancy gave her the overall victory for the weekend. The top four boats were all 100% Dolphin!
