Noble Marine Supernova Travellers at Scammonden Water Sailing Club

by Derrick Jackson 15 May 2018 14:21 BST 13 May 2018

This was the second day of the Northern Pots and the weather was sunny and warm. Given the nice weather there were 4 club boats and 7 visitors competing in the first race which started promptly at 11am.

There was some very close competitive sailing throughout the fleet first place, this was swapped several times with Scammonden Steve Yates (Scammonden) finishing in 1st place, closely followed by Derrick Jackson (Scammonden) and 3rd place was Frank McMullen (Bolton).

After a delicious lunch, races 2 and 3 were run back to back. The second race again saw very close racing for the majority of the fleet but somehow Derrick Jackson (Scammonden) made a break for it and came 1st with Frank McMullen (Bolton) 2nd and David Scott (Elton) in 3rd place.

The 3rd race had everything to play for with 3 sailors able to win overall. All three rounded the last mark together, however, Phil Davies (Scammonden) stormed past to take the win, this in turn gave the overall win to Derrick Jackson (Scammonden), 2nd was Frank McMullen (Bolton) and 3rd was Steve Yates (Scammonden).

Thanks to the OD and his team for a well organised event and to the ladies in the galley for the food.

A very enjoyable day for all involved.
