The second event in the hotly contested GP14 Midland Bell series is set to be hosted by Staunton Harold Sailing Club on 23rd April.

The second event in the Midland Bell series, the Staunton Open follows hot on the heels of last month's Chase SC's event. The big question is will the race leaders be contesting their top spots! The leaderboard is currently showing, Ian Dobson and Andy Tunnicliffe (Burwain SC) top of the Gold Fleet, M Cleal and Romak (Wembley/Welsh Harp SC) heading up the Silver Fleet and Cath Grove and Rob Slack (Chase SC) winning the Bronze Fleet.
