Champions ProfileNick Craig
I started sailing when I was 8 in Cadets at Frensham Pond. It was and remains a great place to learn as the fleet is strong so there was competitive racing from the outset. Frensham is a perfect place to learn about windshifts with a lot of trees surrounding a small lake!
After Cadets, I didn't fancy the RYA sponsored classes of the 420 and Laser so I moved into Enterprises and OKs. Enterprises were huge at the time and lots of local opens really sharpened up my close, tactical racing and I learnt a lot being beaten by the legends of that era in the 90s. The OK has great international racing which was also an excellent learning curve and provided fun travels.
I bought my first RS400 in 1998 sailing with Keith Bedborough for 6 years. We were 13th in our 1st Nationals and after many hours on the water (and bar!) and a few near misses we finally won the Nationals in 2004 in North Berwick. I've sailed RS400's for 16 years now and will be back for more as it is such a great boat to sail and race.
