A small but select group of sailors took to the water on Sunday morning to take part in the Blencathra Trophy long series for Flying Fifteens. The wind was still strong and gusty predominately from a Westerly direction. Mike & Kayla won from Tim and Ian with Alan and Sue in 3rd. As Dave and Lynn were the only GP14 they joined Peter Whipp in his Laser and Alex and Olivia in a RS 200 in the handicap fleet, an excellent battle ensued with less than a minute separating all 3 on corrected time, Dave and Lynn won from Alex and Olivia. The younger members did not take their Toppers out as they were assisting with training recruits from last weeks Open Weekend.
The afternoon race was the Calvert Trust Pennant which was postponed from last week. Dave and Lynn won from Mike/Kayla followed by Tim/Ian, Alan/Sue and Jim and Poppy. This race was also the second round of Sandra’s Salver which is for the best female crew in a series of 7 pennant races. Poppy still leads the series by one point.
