Flying 15s Open Meeting at Burton

by BIFFA on 28 Jun 2011
.. .
TNT Travellers series 2011 first event was hosted by Burton SC over 19th and 20th June. The scheduled meeting at Ogston was cancelled due to lack of water.

The meeting attracted 14 entries, including four from Ogston and four from the new host Club. This meeting formed the first component of the TNT series. The weather was fantastic with brilliant sunshine and a good breeze.

Race Officer Dave Bell, recovering from a shoulder operation earlier in the week, was duly ferried out to the start area and set a variety of courses for the Saturday afternoon. Race one went to Andy McKee sailing his dad’s boat (with, presumably a promise to look after it) with Rich Jones followed by Richard Hope and Scott Smith with Chris Swallow with Richard Nurse in third. Arthur and Andrew George took race two with Rod Rowlands and Mick Scoles second and Colin Butler and Robin Smedley third. A pattern for the weekend started to emerge in races three and four with Andy McKee winning both followed by Richard Hope with Andy Goddard in third.

Sunday morning saw the fleet joining in the Ernie Hewkin Memorial pursuit race with a good number of club boats including several juniors who were having their own race within a race for the prize money generously donated by Ernie’s family.

The final race of the open followed immediately after the pursuit with Andy McKee winning followed by Richard Hope with the Georges third. This was also the finishing order for the Open meeting.
