Bassenthwaite GP14 Open 2018

An enjoyable weekend’s sailing at Bass. Shifting winds led to some testing conditions on the Saturday.

There was little sign of Dave/Joe in the first race who left Mike/Eric to battle with Val/Ken who were delighted to secure 1st place. Dave had to work his way through to the lead in the next race beating Julie/Chris Waddington (from Bolton). They took the same positions in race 3.

Sunday greeted sailors with a stronger and more consistent breeze more from the south, so the opportunity was taken to use the buoys in the southern end of the lake

The event overall winner was Dave Lawson and Joe Roberts, with  Julie and Chris Waddington (Bolton SC) in second place and Val and Ken Bell in 3rd.
