2017 Dinghy Rope Midland Series - Event 7 Midland SC.


17 boats entered the Midland SC Solo Open on July 2nd. 14 visitors joined the 3 home boats. The weather was kind, 22c sunny, the wind, well we did have some wind around 8knts at times but it was some what fickle which meant for an interesting days racing. 

Alan Bishop showed good speed all day and was the deserved winner of the event with two firsts and a second which showed a mastery of the conditions as he pulled through the fleet on every race. Ian Ingram also showed his class in these conditions collecting two seconds (his recent favoured position) and a fifth to finish second over all. Third was Kev Hall who won the second race and at one point got into first on the third race and thus winning over all but the wind gods had other ideas and sent him back to fourth. Andrew Liddington won his second Fernhurst Books Vintage Boat prize. 

Most people had a go at leading so it made for an enjoyable day for all. Thanks goes to Midland SC for holding the event, Mark McKeever Fleet Captain and PRO who did a good job in the swinging breeze.
