The Solo Open was held in wet, miserable condition, with a little wind, but it was cold. Given the conditions it was great to see half the fleet as visitors coming from all over the Midlands, including Sheffield Viking, Draycott, Ogston, Earlswood, Carsington and Liegh on Lowton, and of course a good turnout from the home Notts County fleet.
The all female Race crew provided some good racing on a relatively short course managing 4 races in the poor conditions. There were couple of spills as the wind gusted, and the cold seeped through in the final race.
Tom Gillard of Sheffield Viking won with four firsts. Nigel Davies from Draycott finishing second with seconds and thirds. Martin Honner (Ogston) and Ian Ingram (Earlswood) were equal on points with Martin ahead in the final race so coming third. The first Notts County Sailor (and Junior) was Jake Willars finishing in 6th place.
