Topper Midland Championships at Notts County Sailing Club

by David Eberlin 13 Jun 2022 11:06 BST 11-12 June 2022

The Topper Midland Championships took place at Notts County Sailing Club over the weekend of 11/12th June. The wind was gusty on Saturday, but for the most part it was sunny and warm, Sunday saw lighter winds, but still sunshine at times.

Saturday saw Joe Rowe from Draycote dominate by winning every one of the four races, Jessica Powell (Draycote) was the first under 13 and second overall with constant results at the top of the fleet, Samantha Mason from Notts County was third, there were not many points separated the first six so it was all to play for on Sunday.

There was less wind on Sunday for the three final races. Joe Rowe continued his dominance winning overall with five firsts to count. Meanwhile Charlie Hopkinson from Notts County started building on his results on Saturday to finish with consistently high results in second. Jessica Powell was third and Katherine Gunn (Notts County) forth, Samantha Mason finishing 1 point behind in fifth.

Mike Powell (ITCA area rep) and Russ Dent from Topper thanked the sailors and Notts County SC for another well run and managed event and look for to the 2023 Champs.
