RS200 sailor Maria Stanley became the first female helm to win an adult fleet at a UK RS national championship since the RS classes were first established 25 years ago. Together with crew Rob Henderson, she showed a strong pedigree with an excellent string of results throughout the week-long championship, which was part of the RS Games held at Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy. The RS200 fleet saw the biggest adult fleet, with 116 boats contesting the title.
It rounded off a highly successful 12 months for the duo, who also won the inland championships (in deep snow!)
