Flying 15 UK Ranking: Rounds 16 – Victory for Steve Goacher extends his lead as Richard Rigg rises to the top of the Crew’s ranking
Another well attended Flying 15 event this weekend at Bassenthwaite saw Steve Goacher win all 5 races to take the Northerns title in addition to the Inland Championship he won earlier in the season.
35 boats from as far as Hayling Island and Parkstone, along with those who travelled south across the Scottish border enjoyed some great sailing in tricky conditions.
Victory sees Goacher pull out a lead of over 500 points to put at least one on the National Ranking trophy for 2014 with six events left and is great preparation for the Europeans next month in Mallorca. Rigg who is also having a great season crewing for Greg Wells has risen to the top of the Crew’s ranking, as the pair look in good form as they seek to defend their title they won so brilliantly back in 2012 on Lake Garda.
