Waples Wines Northern Traveller Series
Written by Dave McKee
Series Update after 2 events
With the first two events of Royal Windermere and Ogston completed in this five race series the results show a good level of interest. So far, 13 clubs have been represented and there have been a total of 29 entrants.
It’s early days yet for the series however at this point the lead is held by 3627 Rob Goodison and Johnathan Mallesary of Scarborough Yacht Club who have completed two events and are therefore now qualified for the series.
The event at Ogston took place on 14th and 15th June. Full results are available on the Ogston Sailing Club webpage. The sailing conditions proved testing with the event won by Andy Goddard and Mal Hartland from Dovestone Sailing Club who have previously won the Traveller Series and were putting down their marker for the 2014 series. Second were Jon and Julia Ward of the host club .
The next event in the series is at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club on 23rd and 24th August. This event is also the Northern Championships and a qualifier for next year’s World Championships, so this should be a great weekends sailing.
