 The last weekend of Team Racing action before Christmas was pretty light on wind but heavy on action.

At Chew Valley Lake SC the Bristol Brew only managed 27 races on the Saturday but made up for it on the Sunday getting to 72 races before semis and finals. Semis saw RTYC beat Cardiff 2:0 and Exeter Blue beat Exeter Black, also 2:0. The final was also a 2:0 win for the RTYV team of Josh Adams (Captain), Sam Jenkins, ,Cyrus Ledru, Cat Wallace, Duncan Hampshire, & Ali Hinds. It was, however, closely contested by the Exeter team, particularly the second race which they led for most of the time, losing to 2,3,4 on the finish line.

In the East the Lougborough Lemming managed 92 races before their semis and finals. Whilst intending to have a best of five final the dying wind forced it to be terminated after 2 races with Southampton Red as the winners beating Warwick Red. In third place were Durham Purple. Read the official report at http://www.busa.co.uk/news/wessex-alumni-win-2017-lemming also Mae Franco says there are some great pictures on their Facebook Page

Up North we believe the Hallam Hangover was taking place. This is mainly a coaching event with Chris Kameen, a winner of the Wilson Trophy doing the coaching. Weather should have been ideal for them!

Way down South in Weymouth the RYA Schools Match Racing was taking place.From reading the RYA Match Racing Facebook page it seems they had extremely light weather on Saturday but managed to sail a full round robin on the Sunday. Unfortunately, this meant that there was no time for any finals.

The winner with six wins and only one loss was Alaric Bates of the Oxford Team Racing Academy, second was Dimas Valis Quiros of Royal Hospital School and third Ton Savidge of Abingdon School.
