Boxing Day Races

Boxing Day Races 2014.jpeg

The annual Boxing Day races took place at Roswell Pits in a pleasant force two south westerly breeze. Five boats started the first race and Andy Wilcox crewed by Scott Bilham, sailing an RS 400 soon found the lead. Jack Knight in a laser and Simon Leeks in a Solo vied for second place. However when times were corrected Andy dropped to third, 12 seconds behind Jack Knight who was 36 seconds behind Simon Leeks.

The competitors needed a warm up with coffee and mulled wine plus mince pies and Stollen cake for sustenance.

With a second race everyone made a great start but again Andy and Scott found themselves leading the fleet. Again on corrected time Simon Leeks was the winner and so he retained the Boxing Day Trophy.

Final results:

1. Simon Leeks 2 points.

2. Jack Knight 4 points.

3. Andy Wilcox and Scott Bilham 6 points.

4. Simon Loach (Solo) 10 points.

5. Eric Christan (Laser Radial) 11 points.
