Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Racing Open – Ribble to Blackpool – April 25 Re: Re: Open – Ribble to Blackpool – April 25


Five of us took part, on a lovely sunny, but relatively windless day. We were upwind along the river then on a reach or run as we aimed in for Blackpool south shore.

An Osprey came first, followed by a Fireball, then another Osprey. I was 4th, then last was the club Wayfarer.

I should have done a lot better but anyone following my mast tribulations will know why my upwind performance (esp in light airs) is under par
