Two travelling events over consecutive weekends:-
Chichester Europe Open (25th March)
Staunton’s Joe Penhaul Smith took 6th overall with two top sails of 4th in a fleet of 15 boats. Definitely an interesting “1st race of the season with a few going around the wrong mark or forgetting if we were on a triangle or a sausage lap as well as a number of capsizes…” To read the full race report courtesy of Yachts and Yachting Online please click here.
Hayling Island Europe Open(1st / 2nd April)
In this, the second race of the season, Staunton’s George Crammond came 13th overall, whilst Joe Penhaul Smith came 18th in a fleet of 30 boats.
“Big swelly waves, and a stonker of a SW breeze…” were key to the weekend’s sailing conditions. To enjoy the full race report (courtesy of Yachts and Yachting Online
