Well it was at the Oxford Magnum, which had 21 teams taking part. while it was quite light on Saturday it more than made up for it on Sunday. Gold Silver and Bronze leagues were established from a HLS league early on Sunday, coinciding with the move to cutdowns.

At the end of the Leagues there was no time for Finals so the winners were Bough Beech SC followed by Thames Exiles and Oxford & Cambridge Sailing Society. RTYC won the Silver League and London White the Bronze league.

I am told that it was warmer for the eight teams competing in the Plymouth Pasty but It sounds as if Sunday was pretty windy here as well and the racing might have had to be curtailed but Bristol Beige appear to have been the winners.

Glasgow were hosting the first of the Scottish Qualifiers, in what appears to have been much lighter conditions, although I am told it was pretty shifty on the Sunday. There are four events in this series and this event was mainly used to seed the 23 teams taking part. Thanks to Ailsa Muskett of Aberdeen University, the Communications Officer of Scottish Student Sailing you can read the official report if you Click Here. Photos of the event are Here

The Sheffield Shuffle We didn't have any spies at the event and we are still awaiting the official report, but Pete Collings tells me that there were 20 teams at Pennine Sailing Club.  Swansea 1 beat Manchester in the final while in the peti-final Liverpool beat Swansea 2 (winners of the Silver League), then it was Birmingham, Leeds and Durham Freshers. There are lots of pictures on their Facebook page

In the Northern Team Racing Tour Manchester are in with a shout of catching Edinburgh, much will depend on the outcome of the Angel of the North in two weeks time.
