6/8/14 It was the Solos turn last week and while we couldn’t quite live up to the standard of the Wayfarers the week before we didn’t disgrace ourselves!
Roger Wilson managed a very creditable 38th out of 72 entrants, despite being the only Broader to capsize all week, slowly improving his performance all week. Ian Ayres spent the week recovering from a poor start and rose to 51st, just piping Bob Hawkins into 52nd who had started with a 9th place in race one, both of them wimped out on the windiest day following a 45 minute dead run out to the start-line.
25/10/14 Congratulations to Phil & Dennis Manning for coming 17th (out of 58) at the Wayfarer Europeans – results which included several top places at the first mark. Also to Mike Mc for winning the event quite convincingly – must be all that training he gets with us over the winter….
Several other Rollesby sailors will be out and about at Nationals, European and even World events over the next few weeks – whilst we are not expecting winners we’ll be doing the best we can – watch out for results on the sailing websites.
