Finn-tastic Mr Shinton

The Finn Inland Championships took place at the weekend at Oxford S.C. with Jeremy Shinton representing the club in his first outing to a Finn event. The wind was howling with 3 races per day to challenge the sailors ability and stamina. Jeremy managed to get to the windward mark in the top group in most of the races showing he has competitive upwind speed only to find that the downwind pumping technique allowed in the class required some work and he lost time to the competition on this part of the course.

Overall the event was a great entry into the Finn class racing with Jeremy posting a creditable 16th out of 32 in a competitive fleet.

The only thing that stands between Jeremy and Giles Scott now is a good downwind pumping technique, now who at the club could teach him that....? ;)

Bartley Lasers 1st and 2nd at Trimpley

Bartley Lasers continued their Midland traveller circuit success with a 1st (John) and 2nd (Simon) place at Trimpley SC at the weekend to follow on from a win at Trent Valley the week before. John Ling now leads the series with only Shustoke, Draycote, Staunton Harold, and the series finale at Bartley left to go. It would be great to see our full laser fleet out on the water for our Open on 14th October so if you own or have access to a laser make sure you put the date in your diary.
