It's cold and wet outside but sailing still continues in the UK and around the world. We're delighted to announced the October and November winners of the Report of the Month sponsored by Henri Lloyd!

October's winner was the report on the 49er and 49erFX Nationals at the WPNSA. Coming straight after Rio 2016, no-one expected a high turnout in these Olympic classes, but a very healthy fleet of 18 boats took part in the racing. The report was co-authored by Gillies Munro and Ellie Aldridge so there could be a fight on for the Dri-Pac!

For our November winner we go from the purpose-built London 2012 Olympic sailing venue to proper grass-roots club sailing and the report from the Dyer Cup at Blackwater Sailing Club. 24 dinghies took part in this race, which is traditionally held at the end of the club's season.

Many thanks to Christine Brown for sending this in and also highlighting the shorter race that the youngsters enjoyed at the same time.

These two reports again highlight the diversity of our sport - one of the aspects which make it so enjoyable.

Both authors will be sent Henri Lloyd Dri-Pacs for their efforts. As well as writers winning prizes, all those who nominate winning reports are also in with a chance of winning a Henri Lloyd Dri-Pac. Our lucky winners in this draw are Ryan Donaldson who thought it was great to hear more about domestic 49er racing and Sarah Bakewell who thought the Dyer Cup report captured the day perfectly.

Keep nominating when you see a great report - simply fill in the form at the top right of reports that have happened in the last couple of months. We love recognising our contributors and maybe you can win a prize too!
