The National 18 Spring Challenge brought out 8 boats, four of the new Ultras and the unique Woodstock, visiting from afar. The 18s had two races in the afternoon in addition to the scheduled morning race and the Handicap series was won on the result of the last race by outport members Ollie Houseman and Jeremy Vines in their new Ultra, Ace, from Colin Murray’s visiting Woodstock. The first over the line was also won by Ollie and Jeremy.
Many thanks to all to those who assisted in the organisation – Mervyn Alan, Martin Adams, Simon Thompson, Jenny Finlayson, David Jerram, Brian Timbrell, George Barber and Howard Thatcher, most of whom stepped in to help out.
A very special thanks goes to Alan Green who invented the event.
