2014 Endeavour Champions
Monday, 03 November 2014 00:00

sun3Piping their nearest rivals to the post in the final race of the series was just enough for Matt Burge and Toby Lewis, representing the Osprey class, to secure the 2014 Topper Sailboats-supported Endeavour Championship.

A sixth place in the penultimate race for the Osprey team and a third for the Merlin Rocket boys, meant there was just one place between the leading contenders going into the final race. For the Osprey team to win, they had to finish ahead of the Merlin Rocket team.

The final race showdown was exciting with Ian Dobson and Holly Scott (GP14) establishing an impressive one-minute lead over Mee and Pygall (Merlin Rocket). Dobson and Scott maintained their position to the finish but in the closing stages of the race, Burge and Lewis (Osprey) were back in contention after being buried at the start and were able to take advantage of a favourable shift at the final leeward mark and just managed to beat Mee and Pygall across the line.
