This years series has seen some high winds, but only one weekend was lost due to gusts in excess of 40mph.
The final two races of the Spring Splash took place in glorious sunshine and a steady F2-3 easterly breeze. The overall result was extremely close with the decider coming down to the last race.
This years winners were Josh Gebhard and Louise Ramsden from Derwent Reservoir in their RS200.

The RYA NE Championship took place on Saturday/Sunday 25/26th October. The conditions were challenging for sailors, race officer, and safety crews with winds gusting in excess of 30mph on both days . Conditions only allowed 3 out of the 5 planned races to be completed with the remainder needing to be abandoned as wind strength increased on Sunday and muscles tired.
Congratulations to Alex and Oscar, winners of the Youth and Junior fleets respectively.
