Champions Profile

Dave Acres 2015
Started sailing a Heron at Cookham Reach on the River Thames when I was 9 and loved it. Then sailed a topper on the sea at Bosham where my Grandparents lived. Mine was fibreglass, before polypropylene was invented. Did my first Nationals in the Topper at Bognor and realised just how much fun big waves were. That was followed by an OK (with wooden mast and boom) and then one of those modern Laser thingies. Did lots of club and youth racing with Glyn Charles who was close mate and taught me a lot. He won the Laser Nationals at 18. Went to Kingston Poly and got into team racing in Larks. Learnt to drink and won the BPSA team racing Championships. Came 12 in the Lark Nationals as a student and then started sailing Laser 2s with Lea (now wife). Managed a 12th at the Laser 2 Worlds (~200 boats) and 5th at the Nationals. Also raced Laser 5000s, RS600s & 700s and then moved on to the 300 in 2009. Easily the best boat so far.


My Winning Tip

Don’t take unnecessary risks. It is best to stay upright. Same rule applies when drinking. Don’t do the Yard of Ale (unless you can do it without pouring all over yourself). It rarely pays to bang corners (unless you’re last). Stay inside the lay lines and try and be on the favoured tack as soon as possible. If it’s windy use lots of kicker and keep the boat, flat and fast. There is always something new to learn so try different things and see if you start going faster than the guys around you.

Remember, ‘Bars’ are good. Good for waves, good for drinking and good for chocolate. Get well acquainted with your bar. You may well get caught in one with Mr Bolland, so acclimatise your body. Stay up late the week before the Nationals and drink a large range of beverages. Practice the Boom of Doom or Mast of Disaster with your mates. Always start a championship with a full breakfast or a good bacon butty and don’t drink lager unless you can burp.

Good luck and look forward to sailing against you all at the Nationals next year. Dave
