Classic beats Gold at the Flying Fifteen Open Meeting at MNSC
(6th/7th October 2018)

Day one was a good albeit grey and chilly sailing day with close, higly competitive racing. Day two, however, brought just about enough wind to complete the final two races, with a very tight overall result - Mark Greer/Jim Reid in their Classic 2433 made sure that the trophies stayed at home thanks to their one point lead over Chris and Marion Bowen from Northampton SC in their Gold 4013. Many thanks to all visiting and home crews for taking part, as well as to Race Officer Andrew Connellan and his crew and the catering team led by Marion Vessey.

The next Flying Fifteen Open at Middle Nene SC is scheduled for early October 2019 - details will be published in good time.
