Overall Results

Great Bear V and YoHoHo win Royal Southern Oyster Week 

Congratulations to Oyster 625 Great Bear V on winning Class 1 in the RSnYC Oyster Week with the overall win being won on the last of 5 races.  Good close racing on the first three days saw Oyster 72 Infiniti of Cowes and Oyster 655 Sotto Vento also vying for the top place as yachts started the last day's race after a splendid and privileged dinner the night before on the platform of the Royal Yacht Squadron. 

In Class 2, results were even closer with two yachts ending the week on equal points and with Oyster 45 YoHoHo taking first place overall on count back. In second place, Oyster 435 GT Mythos owner Tom Tibbits sportingly congratulated YoHoHo in his flamboyant style – he had been seen all week in Tweeds and Trilby dressed more as if for Cheltenham than Cowes!

A wonderful event, superbly organised by the RSnYC and at the final prize giving, David Tydeman, Oyster CEO secured loud rounds of applause as he thanked the club on behalf of all the participants with the words "we'd love you to do it again please!"
