Flying 15 UK Ranking:
Round 4 – Goacher and Evans kick off their season with a win
Last weekend saw the first of the ’Waples Wines Northern Travelers’ at Royal Windermere YC. Twenty two teams enjoyed two days of great racing. With none of the current top seeds racing it opened the chance for several new teams to establish themselves.
So while there were no changes at the top podium positions for Steve Goacher, Dave McKee and Nigel Tullett have propelled them up the rankings. This season has seen 57 helms 60 crews compete, which is double the number after the fourth round last year – this is great for the class and bodes well for the rest of the season.
It’s a busy month for Flying 15 events with the French Nationals in Dinard and the Chew Valley Open next weekend, as well as Llangorse Open. The second bank holiday weekend sees the Southerns (and 60th Anniversary of the Bulwark Trophy) at Hayling Island which is the first Qualifying event for the 2015 Worlds in Hyeres.
