Waples Wines Northern Traveller Series - Update after 4 events

by Dave McKee on 12 Jul 9 July 2017

The Waples Wines sponsored series for Flying Fifteens has now reached the 2/3rd stage after completion of round 4 of this 6 round series over the weekend of the 8th and 9th July.

Bassenthwaite SC in the northern lakes hosted the latest event and provided a true champagne weekend with hot, sunny light wind conditions further enhanced by a "fizz reception" courtesy of Steve Goacher and Tim Harper to help celebrate their World Championship success.

There was a good fleet of 19 boats of which 10 were visitors. The sailing was close and taxing and it was good to "rub shoulders" with Steve and Tim who showed their class by winning three of the five races and the overall event.

If you are interested in statistics the series so far has seen 48 entrants with 9 boats so far qualified. The two teams of Graham and Alastair Lamond and Craig Robinson and Hannah Davies have shown great support for the series having sailed in three of the 4 events held so far.

The series this year has attracted an increased number of competitors at this stage from a wide number of clubs. The first nine teams in the standings all hail from different clubs.

The next event will be at Burton SC near Derby over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd September, and the Final event and prize giving will be at Notts County on the 7th and 8th October.
