The second event of the series was run by Royal Windermere Yacht Club last weekend alongside the Northern championships. The event provided two days of interesting sailing in good weather conditions. On Saturday competitors sailed in the Southern section of the lake and experienced lightish shifting conditions and on Sunday in the northern section of the lake in windier conditions. With good courses and a super-efficient race team allied to the usual welcome at the club this was an enjoyable event for competitors and support teams.
After 2 events it is too early to judge who the leaders will be however setting out their stall early we already have one qualified team, previous winner Andy Goddard and son Tom from Dovestone. Currently Colin Pierce and Mandy Thackray lie first Silver and Rod Rowlands and David Hill lead the Classics. All is however still to play for. A total of 24 eligible entrants from 8 clubs have taken part in the series so far. The next event is at Ogston near Chesterfield on the 13th and 14th June. This is a good event where competitors will be made very welcome and camping is available at the club for those so inclined.
