1st and 2nd Rudyard Lake Northern Area Solo Open Meeting

Andy Couch sailing his brand new Boon solo 5418 took the event in shifty gusty conditions with two clear wins. He was closely followed home by Andy Friar also in a Boon sailing 5397 also new this season amongst a turn out of some 22 boats. Steve Thomas sailing 5419 came in 6th as a newcomer to the fleet. Both he and Andy collected their boats on the Friday before the event from the factory. Quick straight out of the blocks. Well done to all.

1st GP14 Midland Area Championships

Mike & Liz Senior sailing their new Boon GP14 14132 took the event comfortably on points held over a weekend of where consistency paid. The weekend saw 30 plus boats compete for the title held at Staunton Harold SC. Saturdays racing was held in predominately light airs and bright sunshine. Sunday saw a little more breeze but still shifty. Each race saw a different winner so consistent pace was required to take the event. Mike and Liz produced just that, consistency.
