South East Area Enterprise Series 2017

by David Beaney 19 Nov 2017 20:08 GMT 19 November 2017

This year's South East Area Enterprise series involved open meetings at nine clubs and 57 different boats competed, many only in their home event.

The key to a good open meeting turnout remains having a good turnout from your home fleet – we welcome guest appearances from home club sailors who might not normally sail Enterprises and we hope that they will find a boat to borrow in future years as well. The number of travelling sailors remains constant with 10 competitors travelling to at least one event beyond their home club. A positive sign is that eight of the 10 travellers competed in 3 or more meetings; higher than in previous years.

Open meeting turnout was highest at Hampton Sailing Club with 17 participants. Frensham Pond had the next highest with 13 participants including a good number of visiting sailors.

Hammersmith Reach has a handy bend in it One of the many pluses of sailing on Hammersmith Reach is that it has a great big bend on it. So unless a light south-easterly is inflicted upon the members of London Corinthian Sailing Club, if there's any wind to be found, they're going to find it. Posted on 18 Apr
