Southern Area Report 2017
With Storm Brian battering the UK and the series already tied up there was still a chance to finish runner up to Fraser Hayden. Unfortunately Spinnaker had to abandon the rescheduled final event of the series and therefore Andrew Boyce held second from Doug Latta and Jonathan Otter. Congratulations to Fraser who won three events and his 4th place finish at his home club cemented the title. An absolutely fabulous effort from Papercourt who had 6 sailors qualify, due to the work and enthusiasm from their fleet captain, Andrew Boyce.
Apologies for my lack of time spent as temporary rep but we now have a new man in the seat, Martin Frary, who is not only a very good sailor but is also based in the South.
We will have 12 events in the 2018 series (see below) and with a strong southern contingent making big strides in the majors, should make for a fascinating 2018.
