Border Counties Midweek Sailing 2022

by Dave Thomas 14 Oct 2022 01:35 PDT

Border Counties Midweek Sailing has now completed its second year. It was great to get back to normal (mostly) after the hiccup in 2020 then restrictions in 2021.

This year we added Redesmere to our series which currently has seven events at seven different clubs with all of them putting on a great event for us and are all keen to repeat the series in 2023, some dates are already booked and will be published on our website as soon as they are confirmed.

An absolutely fantastic turnout with 61 entries and over 20 boats at five of the venues the other two had reports of no wind at one and big wind and rain at the other but still twelve and nineteen boats (22 sailors)out at these and our best turnout of 26 boats (31 Sailors) making the trip up to Bala.

It just goes to show people want to sail midweek all helped by a very low £5.00 entry fee.

We encourage all age groups with no upper or lower limit our oldest with a age of 162 years were Brian and Ros Herring in their National 12 and at Redesmere we had a great turnout from their juniors as the event was in the holidays.

We try and encourage double handed boats as everyone seems to be in single handed nowadays and so we have a trophy for 1st overall and 1st double handed, but as usual the series was dominated by the various single handers.

The series got off to a calm day at Shotwick with Dave Turtle showing the faster boats how it's done in his Comet and 1st double going to Mark and John Nield in their Enterprise and the series finished in moderate wind(unlike the forecast)and rain with Pete Coop taking first overall in his Supernova and Simon and Julie Dolman taking 1st double handed boat in their Miracle.

The series was led virtually from the start by last years series winner Pete Coop in his Supernova, let' see if anyone can challenge him for 2023.

There are reports on Yachts and Yachting for all the individual events.

We had a prize-giving after each event and then finally the series prize-giving after Winsford the series results are all on our website.

We have an extra prize for the best attending club so 1 point for every sailor that attends and this year it was won by Winsford who put a great touring show bringing a good number of sailors plus their support crew followed by Shotwick.

We feel the series has been a great success with many competitors wanting to compete again next year and want the dates so they can book their holidays.

The series has all only been made possible by all of the clubs putting on the events and all the volunteers from OOD's to safety boat cover to all the others behind the scenes without these people giving up their time none of these events could happen so a massive thank you to all.

See you all in 2023 for another great series.
