2017 Dinghy Rope Midland Series - Event 3 Carsington



Sailors were treated to sunshine and a nice F4 for the Carsington Solo Open held on the 14th may. 


33 Boats from the North and Midland areas had 3 back to back races with big shifts and some nice gusts rolling down the lake.

Michael, Oli and Stephen showed some class and looked the best three sailors on the day. Oliver seem to spend the day on a header but came good in the last race with a 3rd to bring him up to 4th.

The points were very close a bit further down the leader board with 2 points separating 4th to 7th. I mention this as I came 7th ! despite feeling I'd sailed well 7th didn't seem that good but this shows how the Midland series has moved on. With the larger turnouts and better quality sailors attending the series you need to sail well to get a prize, John Webster was kind enough to give prizes down to 7th so I came away with some wine.

The Fernhurst Books Vintage Prize went to Jeremy Lane of Carsington. 



Well done to Carsington water, the PRO, John for running a good event.
