Four season across race day as Girton Sailing Club members take part in second week of Spring Series Pursuits

Only the most hardy sailors took to the water as wintry conditions provided a challenge for Girton Sailing Club’s members.

In the second week of the Spring Series Pursuits, nine boats participated during the usual three-race schedule.

The mixed bag of conditions, which ranged from calm, sunny periods to raging blizzards, some of which caught one or two out, and those who capsized suffered the harsh penalty of feeling the still icy cold water.

The top three was also made up by Whiles (Supernova) on eight and Daubney (Supernova) on 15.

Fourth to sixth proved to be competitive and it was Macrus and Lily Shaw who led the way (RS200) with 24 points.

Johnson and Maclachlan (Supernova) both finished on 28 points to make up fifth and sixth, respectively.
