The very first Streaker open event (Northern Paddle Series) on 10th June at Beaver SC was a great success. Eight visitor boats attended alongside eight home boats in very blustery conditions. Thankfully the rain held off and sailors enjoyed exercising their muscles and testing their inner core in a variety of wind strengths around a very manageable figure of eight course. Sadly for some the experience extended overboard with a number of capsizes not least on the approaches to the jetties after the races had finished. Thankfully there were warm drinks and food served in the galley to help them recuperate.
Beaver sailors were in contention with Jon Aldous winning the first race and Martin Penty the second but overall on points and final decision was Ian Priest of Scaling Dam Sailing Club. Congratulations to first three places and thanks and a warm welcome to all who attended. Results sheet here.
Thanks also to race officers and support along with galley team.
