Youths get flying start to team racing

The first match in the team racing series saw the youth team take a convincing 7-0 win over the Solo team. One of the Solo team said "it was a demostration in roll tacking by the youths and we didn't stand a chance!".  

This Saturday (18th) it is the turn of the Cadet Parent team to face Ian Bartletts team.  Will the Cadet Parents show the same skills as the youth team or will Ian Bartletts team take a victory?  The action kicks off at 14.30 and subject to wind conditions the course will be right in front of the clubhouse so it will be great for spectating.

Don't forget that bar meals are available after the racing, pre-book your meal with Pam Weeks;, 01793 762962.
