Flying 15 Open at Middle Nene Sailing Club

by Wilf Kunze 17 Oct 2017 07:43 BST 14-15 October 2017

Close racing in perfect conditions brought together sailors from the Classic, Silver and Gold fleets. The fleet sailed five races plus a Crews' Race over the weekend in a highly competitive spirit. The Saturday evening ended with a tasty dinner organised by the MNSC House Team and a few drinks from the bar.

The MNSC Open was also the final event in the Southern Traveller Series and the winners were:

Open Fleet: 4051 Bob Tait/Pete Comber
Silver Fleet: 3359 Derek Harrison/Tim Greeves
Classic Fleet: 2433 Mark Greer/Jim Reid

In the Crews' Race, the winners were 3965 Kato Greer/Simon Childs.

Congratulations to all winners and thanks to all visitors and local sailors! The next Flying 15 Open Meeting at Middle Nene SC is scheduled for October 2018.
