Round 5 – Cadwallader wins in the West Country to move into 2nd in the Flying 15 UK Ranking
Chew Valley played host the Flying 15 Open over the weekend of 10th/11th May. It was definitely “breeze on” for the 10 boats including 2 visitors as the final race on Saturday only saw 4 finishers. With no racing on Sunday the overnight results stood.
A win for Cadwallader boosts him up to second place overall. Wright and Shawyer’s 5th place moves them up to 3rd and 2nd respectively in the helm and crew rankings.
It is set to be a great bank holiday weekend at Hayling (hopefully the weather holds out) as we look forward to another competitive Bulwark trophy. The competitors already entered include Richard Lovering (last year’s #1 Ranked Helm), Charles Apthorp (currently leading the Ranking), Steve Goacher (current UK National Champion), Greg Wells with his European Championship Crew Richard ‘Riggy’ Rigg, BIFFA President Jeremy Davy and David Tabb (newly crowned French National Champion) among others.
