GP14 Open 2016 – Main picture gallery at end of report.
Sunday16 October was the GP14 Open at HSC. It was a nice sunny day which started cool but as the day went on tee shirts broke out. Whilst there was a strong southerly breeze, as is often the case, much of it went over the top with only the occasional crew up situation and this mostly off the club. A course was set by Rob up river within sight and also down river to an I mark off Garricks Temple.
With seven locals and two visitors battle commenced with a spot on start by visitor Ian Dobson, crewed by Emma Marshall. He soon established a considerable lead and with the expert use of his black spinnaker and polished technique he won the first race with ease.
