Dave Acres

Like Mr Bolland I started sailing in a Heron at Cookham on the River Thames with my Mum when I was 9, and loved it. Roll tacking and Gybing up the bank with the wind going round in circles was a great way to learn. At some point (my memory is faded) I became the Southern Area Junior champion. I also sailed a topper on the sea at Bosham where my Grandparents lived. Mine was fibreglass rather than a modern plastic one.  I did a Nationals at Bognor and realised just how much fun waves were. That was followed by an OK (with wood mast and boom) and then one of those really modern Laser thingies. Did lots of club sailing and was lucky to race against Glyn Charles who also sailed at Bosham. He won the Laser Nationals at 18 and taught me a lot. Went to Kingston Poly and got into team racing in Larks. Did some serious drinking and won the BPSA team racing Championships. BUSA was a separate event for clever folk at University. Came 12 in the Lark Nationals as a student and then started sailing Laser 2's with my girlfriend (now wife). Best place was 12th at the Laser 2 Worlds and 5th at the Nationals. Also raced Laser 5000's, RS600's & 700's and then found the 300 which is easily the best boat for harbour racing. 



My Winning Tip
Winning Tip
Try not to take risks and where possible stay out of trouble. Don't bang corners unless you're really sure there is only one way to go and then stay inside the laylines. Make use of the full range of rig controls to try and get the boat fast, flat and balanced. Practice and try different things with other 300 mates. There is always something new to learn and I know I could go much faster given the time. My boat handling is no where near where it should be and nor is my fitness so my challenge for next year is to set some goals to try and improve these areas.
