The series reaches its conclusion and it looks as though the winners of each section will be decided at the final event.
The first race on Saturday is scheduled for 13.00, there are 5 races altogether and with 3 on the Saturday travellers should be able to get away reasonably early on Sunday.

Waples Wines Northern Travellers Series Update….!!

Waples Wines Northern traveller Series Update

Waples Wines LogoThe 5th event in this year’s series was hosted at Burton Sailing Club last weekend. This proved to be the best attended event so far with 8 visitors joining the 9 home boats. The racing proved tight with the first 5 boats all hailing from different clubs. The outcome was closely contested between the Bassenthwaite team of Simon Longstaff/Jon Denwood and the Datchet team of Jon Hanson/Helen Selden, and was only decided in favour of the Bassenthwaite boat in the last race. First Classic was Pete Needham/Brian West of Burton and first Silver was Dave Bentley and James Geddes.

The series is now reaching its finale with the last event and Series prize giving taking place at Dovestone SC on the 1st/2nd October. This will be a great event. At present Longstaff/ Denwood from Bass lead the series with two wins however the three boats of Jon/Julia ward, Nigel/Gavin Tullett and Hanson/Selden are tied one point further back. The series will be won by one of these 4 teams. The Silver and Classic sections are still wide open. A copy of the current standings is attached.

The series this year has seen a higher level of turnout at many of the events and larger level of competing boats overall when compared with the last few years, perhaps a sign of the success of the series and that enthusiasm for sailing is returning.

We look forward to a bumper event at Dovestone to round off the series. Please let David McKee know if you are planning to enter as this helps with numbers david.mckee@scanlans.com 07836 602084.
