Wanlip Sailing Club

The season is now well under way with the first series, The Icebreaker, being completed over seven Sundays, three races taking place each day.

It was a nail-biting end as there were three boats with extremely close points, vying for the cup, meaning it was all to be decided on the last day!
This was a very blustery windy day, making exciting sailing and equally exciting spectating with a few capsizes and rescues.

It was won by just one point, with Neil Burgess in his Laser being the victor. Elaine Trewick  and Tony Vance in the RS200 finished second by that elusive point.
Members are now making sure their boats are ship shape and Bristol fashion ready for the next series, The Netley. I hope this will prove to be as exciting as the first one!
