Southern Area Championships – Day Two

Southern Area Championships – Day Two

After Saturday night’s champagne reception, supper and Mad Medway Quiz (including a special round on Kent Trivia for our visitors from Derby) racing resumed with three more windward/leeward races on Sunday in a slightly increased wind of 15-22 knots. Inevitably this contributed to a capsize or two but racing continued to be very close indeed. Andrew and Tom Wilson continued their fine form by winning races 4 and 5. Guy Marks and Mel Titmus, who had a much better Sunday than Saturday, won race 6. Bill Whitney and John Shelton continued their consistent form. As for the rest of us…..

The prize giving took place on the terrace under a sunny sky. End of a wonderful weekend of racing.

1st Andrew and Tom Wilson
2nd Bill Whitney and John Shelton
3rd John Clementson and Paul Grace
