Miracle National Championship at Netley Sailing Club - Overall

by Brian Jones on 12 Aug 6-11 August 2017

Different conditions with an onshore wind and bright sunshine. First place was sewn up yesterday but there were still places to vie for and a keen fleet tacked out into the channel, trying to work out the shifts and the tide.

The two Mumford sisters were first at the windward mark, helmed respectively by Tracy Amos and Brian Jones. Tracy was trying to move up to second overall and Brian from seventh to sixth. Close watch was kept on some of the following boats. Tracy and Hannah never needed to look back as they sailed away into an unassailable lead.

Miracle Champions for 2017 are Dave Butler and Ross Fleming, congratulations on a well deserved win. Runners up after a brilliant campaign are Andrew and Michaela Mifsud, youngsters from Malta in a borrowed boat, Tracy and Hannah maintained their third and naturally won the Lady Helm as well.

This last points race was followed by a combined single handed, non Spinnaker and the final Youth and Juniors with a good turnout to end an excellent week. Thank you Netley Sailing Club.
