8 B14s descended on SYC for its annual open on the weekend of 6th and 7th August. This was smaller than recently and was largely due to the recent Nationals in Cornwall taking up everyone’s leave and emptying their piggy-banks!

This year the 800 fleet joined in and were sailed off the same start using the PY handicap system, though final results were to be awarded on a class basis.

SYC’s galley crew and race committee did a wonderful job making this one of the favourite’s events on the B14 calendar.

Next year’s event has already been provisionally booked as a Skiff open and will probably be run along similar lines.

Just a test gallery - more to follow...
