Midweek Madness Race #2   

Congratulations to

1st Summer Breeze    Martin Coad
2nd   Windsong Roy Ashcroft   
3rd 2Xtreme Andrew Clark

This series can only grow and get better so line up a crew and get some MADNESS going this Wednesday! 

Friday 13th  December2019:

Ten weeks from the start of the Friday Night Pursuit Series we were able to run our sixth race which was also incorporated the second Lady Skippers’ Pursuit Race.  Although somewhat overcast, it was a great sailing night with a steady south westerly breeze running at about 8-10knots – perfect for safely holding a beer, wine or champagne glass.  It was a great showing with 23 keelboats overall of which eight were skippered by ladies.

This was the last race in the Friday Twilight Pursuit Series #1. 
But don’t fret we do have a Twilight Pursuit Race on next week!   See below for more information.
