2017 Dinghy Rope Midland Series - Event 5 Shustoke

Not the windiest of days at Shustoke on June the 18th but probably the hottest and sunniest. 

21 boats entered for the days racing. The wind was light and patchy all day but at least we had some wind, on occasions the lighter helms used the toe straps for short periods. Chris won the first race by a county mile and went straight in for lunch. race two was won by Stuart and it was nice to see Mat winning the third race one of the three boats from Barnt Green. 

Thanks goes to Rachel and Shustoke for putting on the Open and providing a nice tea for after racing, I forgot to mention Northampton's tea in my report last week, I can see a Midland Series bake off competition emerging. 

Congratulations to Stuart Hydon for winning the event, Chris Brown for coming 2nd and Ian Ingram finishing 3rd. Cole Briscoe was the winner of the Fernhurst Books Vintage Boat Prize this week.
