Date published: 04 July 2019

Many club sailors were out racing elsewhere over the weekend of 30 June.

Six of the junior sailors were taking part in another round of the North West Junior Travellers series at Bassenthwaite. In light winds on Saturday (30 June 2019), followed by strong breezes on Sunday (31 June), they acquitted themselves well, all being in the top third of the results.

At the Filey Regatta, Chris Massey and Tom Daniel scored second, in a Scorpion, in the Fast Handicap category.

At home, the main battle was in the Solo Class. Nick Brook won the first and third races, while Martin Brennan scored a couple of second places.

Richard Whitworth, visiting home territory, took out a Phantom and won the second race.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday (2 July 2019), twenty boats took part in the local region Senior Travellers series.
