13 skippers gathered at the Bournville lakeside on Rememberance Sunday to be briefed by PRO Peter Moore. He welcomed everyone explaining the race format and course. He also announced that we would stop racing around 11:00am and gather in the boat house to observe a 2 minute silence.
A very welcome appearance was made by Mike Harris who had the opportunity to watch Chris win a heat or two whilst catching up with friends. Racing continued at a relaxed pace allowing for an early afternoon teabreak, this gave the race committee a chance to hear the only protest.
We achieved 14 heats by 15:00 so we could prepare for the Midland District AGM. Click here for the full results: IOMMDWCS18-19R1BournvilleRS&MBC
Congratulations go to Chris Harris (Windrush) for the win and new Midland District IOM Champion, Mac Colyer Trophy winner for 2018.
Thanks to Peter Moore (PRO) and the Bournville RS&MBC club members for hosting the event and providing the race committee.
