SAVE THE DATE..

 

more details to follow. 

 

Note the Cardiff event on the same date is cancelled. This is due to unfortunately lack of response from the club after many failed attempts and loss of local B14's

 

Stokes Bay B14 action

Round 2 of the 2014 B14 Travellers Trophy Series took place at Stokes Bay Sailing Club over the 12th & 13th of April.

 

The arrivals were greeted by a beautifully sunny Solent and a slightly fitful looking breeze, with the promise of better to come. The PRO had consulted the weather tree and planned on getting 4 races in on Saturday while the going was good, leaving the remaining 2 races to the fate of Sunday's fickle looking forecast.

Cold start to the 2014 Circuit!

A compact B14 fleet arrived at Rutland to find much colder conditions than previous weekends and a depleted turnout with a range of excuses from buying new houses through to too cold to get out of bed.  For many it was the first sail since the Inlands in October following a winter of hibernation.
