    The 2018, District 3, Traveler's Series has finally come to a close. We began racing in the Spring with the Windy 500, followed by a mid summer event at the Great Lakes Championship and our final wrap up at the Riff Raff this last weekend. In total we had 28 different skippers racing in the series. 4 raced in all 3 and 1 raced in 2 of the events. I didn't score the North Americans, because it was a National event, but if I did add that in, we would have another 15 Skippers on our list.

    Thanks to everyone who helped plan an event and thank you to all the sailors that left their home waters to show their skills at a different body of water. Traveling is what puts the Serious Fun in Snipe Sailing.

    Congratulations to Jno Disch for winning the 2018, District 3, Traveler's Series.

  4. Budworth Snipe Open - North Western Championship
    Budworth Snipe Open - North Western Championship

    Budworth, UK, September 16, 2018

    Report by Iain Marshall

    23 Boats took part in the Budworth Snipe Open meeting on the 15th and 16th September. 7 Travelers took on the local sailors including Malcolm and Iso Tipler all the way from the Orkneys. The first days racing got underway at 1.15 in very shifty and gusty conditions, as the day progressed the wind built from a force two to a three and swung more westerly which settled down the conditions slightly.

    ...

     

    Race one saw a very competitive start throughout the fleet, a trend which continued all weekend. Mark & Tracy Antonelli and James Prestwich & Caroline Carwood managed to get to the front in the first few legs and from then on sailed away from the rest of the fleet to take 1st and 2nd respectively. Peter and Myself managed to come out on top of a very tight tussle with Mark & Tracy up the last beat to take the second race win. Race three was a very hotly contested affair with the lead changing on most legs, Eric Paalman & David Leyland sailed very well to win that one.

    We were of the water by 4 that afternoon before meeting for the AGM at 6 followed by dinner. Huge thank you to the galley team for our meal that evening which was a fantastic 3 course event. It was also very nice to wake up to a cooked breakfast the next morning. Sundays wind was again a force two/three in the morning and like the previous day very blustery and shifty being over the trees from the south.

    Race 4 began at 10.30 which Peter and I won after being forced out to the left hand side on the first beat, not what we wanted but in the end it worked allowing us to be first to the windward mark from where we managed to hold our lead to the finish. Race 5 was a very tight battle between, Mark, Phil & Emma Hackney, Ian Gregory & Mike Kerr and ourselves. The lead changed many times although we managed to win in the end after a lucky gust got us back in contention after dropping behind a bit.

    We came in for lunch after the mornings racing during which time the wind shifted westerly again and dropped off to a force 1. The Hackney's and Peter & I had a tussle at the front for Race 6. We passed Phil on the first run but he got us back on the second and managed to hold onto it till the end as the wind dropped to almost nothing.

    The final results were Peter and myself, from Mark & Emma followed my Iain and Callum Marshall, Callum did a great job all weekend being only 6 with Mark bidding for his services in the future. Huge thank you to Budworth SC for hosting and everyone who helped organise the event, the race officers and race team who did a fantastic job in tricky conditions and as mentioned before everyone involved in the galley for the great food all weekend.
