Ovington Solution Inland Championships at Grafham Water Sailing Club

by Kathryn Hayfield 22 Nov 2013 11:10 GMT 16-17 November 2013

The Solution class finished off their 2013 Travellers' Trophy at the Ovington Inlands at Grafham over 16 & 17 November. The weekend offered some of the closest racing seen all year as the 5 sailors played snakes and ladders with their positions.

Once again Sam Davy proved that the good sailors are always lucky by managing to finish first in 4 of the 6 races, taking both the Inland Championship and the Travellers Trophy in doing so. Dave Harris won the races that Sam didn't which was enough to secure runner up for both trophies. Kathryn Hayfield stole 3rd place in the Inlands from Martin Tubb on count back, but in return Martin finshed 3rd in the Travellers series.

Kevin Clark, with nothing to play for in the Travellers series, was free to escape the freezing cold and windless conditions of Sunday. He was lucky enough to be able to accept 5th place in the Inlands and chose to play with Ovington's new VX One instead.
