Albacores from the midlands and south coast converged on the picturesque and friendly Whitefriars Sailing Club in the Cotswolds for their open meeting on 29th October.

Unseasonably warm weather and moderate but gusty conditions were the order of the day.

Five shortish races were held which led to close racing throughout the fleet however Cameron Moss and Jake Stow from Lyme Regis came out best with a series of firsts sailing the Albacore class association demo boat.

Boats ranged from new all singing and dancing plastic Ovington to a couple of wooden Woofs which were nearly 45 years old. Helm ages also ranged from the over 70s to teenagers which showed the longevity and versatility of the class.
