The TT series 2012 opening event was held at Rutland Water Sailing Club on 24th and 25th March. However, the big event of the weekend was to be the Saturday evening's prize giving at the Whitehorse Pub in Uffingham Morcott. It kicked off nice and early and rocked on till late with some great food and company.
