The second Team 15 North Borderlands event for 2015 took place on Sunday 14th June at Kielder Water Sailing Club. The weather was overcast, with wind from the north-east. Force 4-5 had been forecast for the morning, but in fact this was an overestimate, and the wind got still lighter during the afternoon. Although no speed records would be broken, there was at least enough wind to race.

All fleets managed nine races, with three discards so six to count. The 3.5 fleet sailed from the shore, with three competitors from the Kielder Kestrels and three from the Derwent Devils. Jack Chelley of Kielder took the top spot, with Tom Russell, also of Kielder, a close second.

In the 4.5 fleet Ben Russell of Kielder won every race, leaving his opponents to fight among themselves for 2nd, 3rd and 4th. In the 5.8 Archie Dodd (Kielder again) took first place, winning six out of nine races, and in the 6.8 Aaron Hobb (Coquet Crushers) won every race. It is rather impressive to be able to discard three first places to get your score.

In the team ranking, the Kielder Kestrels were solidly in first place with ten points, followed by the Derwent Devils with 22 and the Coquet Crushers with 31.

Quotes of the day: "Oh my goodness it was deeper than I thought!" (Euan Davis), "Great, cold but not much wind, still love it." (Jack Chelley), "It's great fun plus we have hot chocolate!" (Eimear Hanley).

We look forward to the next event in the series, on Sunday 5th July at Derwent Reservoir.

1st Jack Chelley (Kielder)
