Seavolution B14 Winter Pursuit Series at Draycote this weekend

25-26 February 2012
Marlow Ropes Sponsored
This weekend (25th – 26th February) will see the B14 Flying Circus take part in the Draycote Dash at Draycote Water. Leg 3 is kindly sponsored by Marlow Ropes, one of the key suppliers to the fleet.
Following on from the punishing conditions at the Starcross Steamer and testing climate at the Tiger Trophy, it is hoped that this weekend's conditions will not be so extreme. With a forecast showing mild and possibly sunny conditions with a gentle 8–16 knots, we may at last be in for some less testing weather. With the Dash postponed from last November due to water levels, have been
promised that the water levels have risen and we should be in for a good event.
Anyone interested in the B14, please come and have a chat over the weekend. The new specification Seavolution B14 will be represented by GBR 788 – Seavolution and GBR 789 - Harken.
With one event to go after this weekend, the fleet will then head to the Hoo Freezer (Class Sponsor Allen Brothers) which has always been a good event for B14s. There is still all to play for with some very good prizes on offer. Qualification is best 3 results out of 4.
