Solo Open 21st March 2015 - Results

We hosted a round of the Thames Valley Series Solo Open on Saturday 21st March.

We were pleased to welcome 18 sailors from eleven different clubs, including four Kingsmead representatives.

As they arrived, the sailors were met by inhospitable weather with a strong and variable breeze under dull skies. Undaunted they tucked into coffee and bacon rolls, which were on offer with relish! (There was, of course, also a vegetarian option available - thanks galley!)

Afer this fortification the participants sailed three races (or tried to) as they coped with the wind shifts created by Kingsmead's three islands and there were quite a few capsizes and six DNS/DNFs plus one disqualification, making it quite a lively day for sailors, the safety crew and Duty Officer.

Steve Ede (WMYC) won, Alan Bishop (Girton SC) came second and Andrew Boyce (Papercourt SC) came third. Nick Gill was our highest placed sailor. Congratulations to them all.

Thanks to the officers who ran a great day's sailing and to the galley for refreshing the participants, and to our guests - we hope that you enjoyed the day.
