Another Chilly one Nov 25/26

The Swansea Spartan had a hard day on Saturday as the wind came up, boats fell apart and someone had to go to Cardiff to get more cutdowns. This meant that only 32 races were sailed. However, by Sunday the problems were sorted and it was possible to complete a further 36 races and have time for semis and finals. 

Leaders Plymouth were matched against University of the West of England (UWE) while Swansea Leavers were pitted against Cardiff 3. Both Semis went 2:0 to produce a final of Plymouth v Swansea Leavers and a peti-final of Cardiff v UWE.

Final and peti final again went 2:0 with the Swansea Alumni team (photo) emerging winners of the event from Plymouth while Cardiff 3 finished third and UWE fourth.

Up North the Angel of the North coped better with the strong winds, although they suffered a number of breakdowns and had to run a number of races as 2v2. With 50 races sailed on Saturday they got to 114 races completed before going to semis and finals. 

Here, the results were Edinburgh Blue first, Hoosiers second, Scottish Sailing third and Manchester Purple fourth.

We will add more detail if we get official reports.
