Congratulations to this weekends winners, Society Exodus (Photo) at the Magnum, Birmingham White at Leeds Halloween Howler and Bardowie Beasts at the Scottish Womens Team Racing Champs.

The Oxford Magnum managed 80 races for the 20 teams entered, using cutdowns on the Saturday, this was followed by some 59 races for stage two in leagues on the Sunday and then Semis and Final. Full results can be seen on KSail

Semis saw Wessex Exempt beat Exeter Blue 2:1 while Silver league winners Society Exodus defeated Cambridge Blue 2:0. The finals went to three closely fought  races and it was looking good for Wessex Exempt, as they came into mark 4 on the third race with a 2,3,4. Unfortunately, failure to give mark room changed that to a losing combination and at the end of the beat the final score was 2,3,4 to the Society Exodus team of Peter Gray, Hermione Stanley, James Goss, Emma Mackeley, John Platts-Mills and Maddie Jackson.

In Scotland they were nearer to the low pressure, which had been threatening the weekend and lost almost all of the racing on Saturday. On Sunday the Scottish Womens Team Racing Championships managed 36 races for the 9 teams entered under the HLS system before going to Semis and Finals. Semis were decided 2:0 with St Andreas beating Edinburgh Gals and Bardowie Beasts beating DUSC1. Edinburgh Gals won the sudden death Peti Final to take third place while Bardowie Beasts needed three races to defeat St Andreas 3:0 and become Scottish Womens Team Racing Champions.

Leeds Halloween Howler lived up to its name, with some blustery winds for their 20 teams on Saturday. David Bickerton reports that they managed 120 races and then semis and finals. Birmingham White went undefeated all weekend to win with Newcastle Blue second then Loughborough and Durham.
