GP14 Open Meeting at North Staffs Sailing Club

by D Martin 30 Apr 2001 08:06 BST

Midland Bell Event
Sunday 29th April 2001

This event was scheduled to be round three of fifteen, but due to the foot and mouth epidemic, round two at Nantwich and Border Counties has been rescheduled to a later date.

A good day was had by all. The weather held up for the most part, with the wind up and down which led to some interesting sailing.

There were fifteen entrants for the day and with only ten days notice of clearance to sail, this was pretty good for our small club.
