The recent 420 Autumn Championship was hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. Tim Riley & James Taylor won the event, which was sponsored by Curradinghy. They scored just 9 points over the 7 race series. In 2nd were Neil Marsden & Josie Gummer on 14 points and in 3rd Ben Hazeldine & Rhos Hawes with 27 points.

One of the youngest sailors, Robbie King, together with Ryan Orr finished in 4th place with 31 points. Top girls were Jemima Lawson & Lily Summers, who were in 6th place overall.

The fleet faced challenging conditions, with winds up to 20 knots and a 2.5m swell. The event saw many of the new young sailors handle the conditions admirably.
