Staunton Harold Sailing Club hosts 4th round of the Midland Topper Traveller series

May 2015 - Topper Open

Saturday May 23rd SHSC hosted the 4th round of the Midland Topper Traveller series. There were 5 visiting boats and SHSC were represented by Ethan Lowing and Paul Moughtin-Leay, unfortunately there were other National events taking place that weekend and the wind forecast had put people off!.

Pete Elver and his team made the most of the forecast, 6 knots max, with it dropping off to 2 knots in the afternoon, with running 3 races before lunch. The last race being a sprint race as the wind had already started to drop.

The wind favoured the lighter and more experienced sailors and Simon Gadsby from Nottingham SC dominated the day with 3 wins.

Paul finished 2nd and Matthew Mc Robbie (Hykeham SC) finished in 3rd.
Ethan Lowing has continued to improve his Topper sailing and finished a credible 6th.
