Single Race Results
Girton's Tony Bleasdale finished in second place behind the dominant Tim Hand. Our own Eddie Johnson took fifth including a fourth place in race two. In the battle of the Girton girls, Joanne Daubney pipped Amie King due to a much better finish in the first race allowed her to drop one of her later scores when Amie and Jo were battling for places in the second and third races.
Six Girton Sailors attended the annual Tiger Trophy at Rutland Water Sailing Club. It’s a hotly contested race attracting some of the very best sailors including Olympic medal winners and class champions looking for some winter time on the water. A fleet of 128 boats was greeted with a mixed bag of conditions, with no wind on Saturday and strong winds, sleet and a bitterly cold Sunday.
The strong conditions along with the cold got the better of many sailors with only two GSC boats finishing the three races.
