4 out of 5 for Lovering/ Alvarado
25 Flying 15s graced Grafham Water, including 16 visitors, representing 12 clubs from across the UK, including Royal Windermere; Chew Valley; Hayling Island; and Bewl Valley, to complete 6 races over the two days.
Across the weekend there were 5 different race winners, proving the quality and depth of the fleet, with only Steve Goacher taking two bullets. This meant it was all about consistency, with Lovering and Alvarado, regatta winners, counting five top two results.
These results have certainly changed the top of the leader board in the UKGlobal National Ranking list. But with four regatta wins from the first five events Lovering/ Alvarado hold on to the top spot, with Apthorp consolidating second postion, and Cadwallader moving up to third.So far this season we have seen 44 different teams compete in the five events.
Next weekend sees the first of the Scottish Traveller Series at Loch Tummel and the Royal Windermere Open, as the sailors build up to the Nationals at Weymouth in July and contend the Number 1 spot. Can anyone surpass current leaders Lovering/ Alvarado?
