Report from Noel Donaldson:


A cool but bright morning greeted us at Two Islands Milton Keynes on Saturday, however not much (if any) wind. Unfortunately that was to be the story for both days, plus two hours of heavy rain from 3pm on Saturday.


However as we do, we made the best of it and the 23 skippers sailed 16 races (mostly in two heats) and thoroughly enjoyed the proceedings and the interaction with fellow skippers.


As well as the regular UK skippers we had guest skippers from France, Spain and USA, I hope they enjoyed the experience; we enjoyed having them join the fleet.


The wind was constantly coming & going between 0 and 3mph with the occasional gust of 5-6mph, as well as changing direction, so setting a course was something of a nightmare, however the skill & experience required to cope with these conditions soon became apparent as in most races the fleet was split between those who could read the conditions and those who were less experienced but learning from the exposure.


The first five skippers always made the better decisions and therefore caught what little wind there was to catch; the winner was John Tushingham who was the most consistent across the two days in in whatever conditions he was faced with and a worthy winner. (see results sheet for full details)


Thanks and congratulations go to Mike, Keith and all the club members who gave up their weekend to run this event, it was much appreciated by everyone.
