Here is a big CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all 21 WS Racers who have helmed a 2.3, 303, Liberty, 2.4 or Martin for a total of 142 times during the fourteen Races that comprised the Spring Series 2016!
Since 28th April the reasonable to good weather has meant that all the Races have taken place. The smallest fleet in the Race on 26th May had 5 entrants whilst on 7th July 14 entrants vied for honours!
Peter Gregory did not race in Race 14 nevertheless he had already been crowned champion of the Spring Series. Congratulations to Peter and I am sure you will join me on wishing him every success in the big open RYA Sailability Multiclass Regatta in which he is competing next weekend (August 6th/7th) at Rutland Sailing Club. But the final Race was useful for Kim Sparkes who claimed 2nd overall pipping David Mason into 3rd place. Similarly Peter Wagner (6th overall) just squeezed by Steve Farmer (ending in 7th place).
The final Results for all 12 WS Racers who qualified in the Spring Series are now on the WS website – under the Racing tab. Well done to you all and I do hope that your enthusiasm and infectious enjoyment to compete will continue into and throughout the Summer Series!
