The Foreign Competitors

Second Place went to Buzz Coleman (Coalhouse Fort). Sorry Buzz but I didn’t get a photograph, but a very well deserved place.
Third Place, Max Kettner (Madrid).
Fourth Place, Mike Weston (Swanley) even after falling into the lake on day one.
Fifth place, Peter Spence (Brentwood) a good win considering this was the first MM competition he has sailed in this year.
Sixth Place went to Jorge Camilo (Portugal) unfortunately Jorge had to dash off to Heathrow to catch his flight his prize will be forwarded on to him.
Congratulations to the winners and all that took part in the event both organising it and racing, it was a very good weekend despite the weather.
Strong blustery SW winds made it difficult for most skippers with several retirements D rigs used by most and later on during the day some changed to E rigs
Initial results show John Tushingham, Mike Weston and Buzz Coleman are the top 3.
Wind slightly lighter this morning.
