In a year of cancelled events, they managed to hunt down those allowed to happen, showing their versatility by winning a pre-Covid Northampton, and post-lockdown Salcombe and Frensham Opens. As the name 'Travellers' Trophy' suggests, they had to travel to get it!

They win the coveted Belle Isle Trophy, past winners of which is a 'Who's Who?' of top Lark sailors. Amazingly, Harry wins it for only the first time, having been runner-up in 2010 and in the Top 10 a dozen times. Hopefully, it will be presented at the Lark Nationals 2021.

Dan Watson also racked up the miles - and showed his great ability to do well with various crews - by finishing runner-up. Talented youths Sam Bailey & Finlay Morgan completed the podium, edging out last year's winners Neil & Sue Firth.
