Breezy day today meant the girls only had two starts which were then abandoned due to umpire interference and breakages! Unfortunately, this left no opportunity for movement in the results. Definitely a huge amount taken away from a challenging weekend and “sure, it was good craic anyway!”
Tough day at the office down in Weymouth at women’s match racing today. Sailing in conditions of high teens and a thunder storm or two, provided a rather exciting baptism of fire to the relatively new team to match racing! However the girls are in good spirits and enjoying the close racing, especially the acrobatics […]

The newly formed 3rds were flighted in bronze but held their own today with victories against a highly competitive fleet. 2s scraped into gold fleet after sailing some tricky teams yesterday.

Despite light and tricky conditions the 2nd team topped the leaderboard with not a single race lost and the 1s finished just behind, conceding their only race to the 2s in a tightly fought battle that was too close to call from the shore. Congratulations to both teams who have qualified straight through to finals […]

The 1s were unbeaten on Saturday, leading the event overnight and comfortably qualifying for Gold. Our 2s conceded races to strong teams from Imperial and Cardiff but after a tense re-sail, also secured a spot in the top flight. Sunday dawned chilly and light and the 1s remained unbeaten. The 2s first results were mixed […]
