2017 Dinghy Rope Midland Series - Event 6 Chelmarsh



The weather was kinder to us this weekend after the winds of Northampton and light winds of Shustoke with a nice F2 in the morning and a f2-f4 wind in the afternoon. 23 Boats 12 visitors all managed to arrive at the lake despite most satnavs trying to send you down a gravel road. 

Chris Brown got off to his now usual first race win (what does he have for breakfast) but in the afternoon slipped to a 3rd and over the line. Ian was Mr consistent gaining three 2nds which was very impressive as the first ten places where very mixed. Race two was won by Bob Suggitt and race three was won by the star of the day, I can say that as I'm writing the report , me , Nigel Davies. In the end the top three all had the same points but I came out on top, woowho.

Gareth Wilkinson won the Fernhurst Books Vintage Boat Prize coming 5th and first Chelmarsh boat.


Thanks to Chelmarsh SC for holding a great event, to the PRO, Joint Fleet Captains and to the Galley for suppling food all day and nice cakes post racing. 

From left to right, Chris Brown 2nd, Nigel Davies 1st, Ian Ingram 3rd.
