Congratulations to Andy and Phil on winning the GP14 Northern Championship at Bolton this weekend

Meanwhile in sunny Bassenthwaite, crews filled their water bottles and donned sunglasses, eye shades and sun screen to compete in three of our long series fleet races. Peter Whipp had a good weekend sailing his Laser in the Handicap Fleet and winning all three races. Mike/Kayla did likewise in the F15 fleet, with Ian/Lezli-Ann coming second each time.

Things were not so settled in the GP14 fleet. On Saturday, AJ/Sue were ahead for most of the first race, only to be overtaken by three boats on the last leg. Mike/ Eric took the win. Alan and Sue also did well in the second race, coming second to Dave/Lyn who also won Sunday morning race with Mike/Eric second.

In Sunday’s second race all boats started together for the Jubilee Sailing Trust Pennant. Results also count towards the female crew’s competition for Sandra’s Salver. As it turned out, the race lasted over two hours, with the usual challenges of variable winds down the lake. Three F15s, three GP14s and one single hander finished the course.

On the water the first F15 to finish was Neil/Rory with the Dave/Lynn eight minutes behind in the first GP14 who won by 4 mins on handicap. Phil Davenport also deserves a prize for completing the race in his Musto Skiff, which is not a restful boat under any conditions. Kayla is building a strong lead in the competition for Sandra’s Salver.
