Nick and Geoff win Southern Area Championships

The first event of the Craftinsure Super 6 series kicked off on 14 and 15 May at Stone Sailing Club. The Club is situated on the Nick and Geoffsouth bank of the River Blackwater where the river is some 2km wide at high tide and the open sea is only a few miles away to the east, giving some interesting sailing conditions, with mostly prevailbing south-west winds.

The event had good support from Welsh Harp SC with Duncan Greenhalgh and Colin Quint travelling the furthest to attend the two day event.

Picking up where they left off last year Nick Devereux and Geoff Edwards from Budworth were worthy winners with Richard Ham and Stephen Browne taking second and Helen Allen top female helm and third place crewed by Maciej Matyjaszczuk.
