Winter Series race 1, Sunday 11 October 2020

The 2020/2021 Winter Series kicked off on a sunny Sunday morning with a comparatively steady NNW breeze and a stream that had moderated a little compared to a week ago.  Seven Lasers, eight Merlin Rockets and two N18s stretched their legs and enjoyed some close racing.

Matt P-J won the Lasers in a close finish, Charlie Morgan and Humphrey Dorrell won the Merlin Rockets, and the on-water winners for the N18s were Henry Defries and Carolyne Vines.

Thanks go to OOD Joe Woods assisted in the box by stand-in at short notice Sue Harris, and Marcus Chevasse and Ken Thatcher in the patrol boat.  All photographs by Jonathan Key.

There are more than 20 races in the Winter Series with 50% to count so there is the potential for plenty more good action over the coming months.
