Champions Profile

Jerry Wales 2015

Ever since my first sail in a friend's Mirror dinghy in the sixties all I ever wanted to do was mess around on the water. While at school I sailed Mirrors, built a few Moths but mostly canoed. In what I hoped would be a prelude to a career in the marine industry I spent the summer of '76 building Flying Dutchman, listening to “Going to Barbados” on the radio and living in a caravan. Living the dream?  Well, no, 1976 was a bad time for the marine industry so the boy from suburbia went home and started counting beans for a living.

Fast forward through all that stuff that gets in the way of sailing like rebuilding houses, working in the States and the inevitable Laser years and RS was starting to come on the scene in a big way and that seemed the obvious place to be (it was and still is) so I got an RS300 which despite its cult status is still massively under rated.  We had some very good times concluding with a Nationals win in 2000.

It was probably in 2002 when an RS700 was left on my drive on a sail or return basis. Spinnakers, trapezes and masts with wires on, what’s all that about? It  was going to be ugly but after a year learning the tricks I was third in my first Nationals in 2004.  Work took over again and I had a few years in the Musto Skiff, but eventually I saw the light and got another RS700.  On reflection coming back to the RS700 was like coming home after a tour of duty in Iraq.

Three Nationals and three Euro wins later and I feel I am just starting to get on top of this sailing lark.  But, coming off the back of this year’s Nationals I have a list errors and cock ups (yes, that tack onto port in the second race) to put right over the Winter if the body allows.



My Winning Tip

It’s obvious really - practise!
