‘The Thursday night Saga series has just passed the halfway mark, with 3 races left. We have been cursed by very light winds but 15 different boats have taken part so far. Of these 7 have qualified already (4 races), and the rest able to do so if they sail the remaining 3 races.
To date Ken Duffell and his grandson, Matthew Valentine, have completed 4 wins but were beaten on handicap in the last race by Tim and Ed Medcalf in their Firefly Scallywag. At the moment the other podium places are also taken by Merlins, with Barry Mourant and Carolyne Vines in second and Rupert Fletcher and J shepherd in third. However with 3 races to go there is still time to catch these two. Even if you can’t the next 3 races can be good practice for the next series.
So see you on Thursday.’
