Great result for Staunton GP14 sailors
Congratulations to Staunton sailors Peter Nugent and Charles Saunders 5th in Bronze Fleet .The GP14 Nationals saw 56 boats competing and some interesting conditions with racing postponed due to not enough wind and too much wind. Nonetheless there was an opportunity for some great, hugely competitive sailing at the South Caernarvonshire YC. Congratulations to overall winners – Sam Watson and Andy Thompson.
