fleet01The UK Committee need your help! Kathy would like your suggestions for future Nationals venues- Porthpean is certainly on the list for a return in a few years, but we need some other venues in the meantime. Head over to the forum to add your suggestions and offers of help- help is also sought for TT and Inlands venues.

tt01a-2011The first B14 Ullman Sails TT event of 2011 took place at Rutland Sailing Club on the 26th and 27th March 2011.

It was a light forecast but on the Saturday the fleet were greeted by a Force 3 easterly which gave the crews a chance to blow away the cobwebs in which most cases it was their first outings of the year. 

Saturday brought gusty winds which gave the fleet a lot of opportunities for overtaking downwind, making the racing very close with frequent place changes and most races getting decided on the last run.

 

gbr01The B14 fleet arrived at Grafham to be greeted by sunny skies and a fair breeze.

Sharing the course with the 29ers, the B14s were the first fleet to start, sailing on the outer course. The stage was set, in a shifty and gusty force 2 – 3, a story was to unfold.
