GP 14 Southern Travellers - WHSC Victor Trophy
Saturday 24th October 2020
The Victor Trophy was contested by sixteen crews in testing conditions culminating in 25 knot gusts, and short sharp showers. Four races were closely fought back to back save for a short break for on -the-water snacks. A Committee Boat peppered in red and green meant a challenging course - set by Race Officer and resident sailing guru -Norman Brown - that included two long beats and a ripping reach, making the most of the predominately SSW wind cutting across the lake.
While capsizes were frequent and frequently spectacular, Covid concious safety crews kept everybody safe. Despite periodic bouts of weather induced chaos visitors Sam Watson and James Hockey (Nantwich SC & Lough Foyle SC) closely followed by James Goodfellow and Richard Cornes (Harwich SC & Burghfield SC), serenely dominated proceedings, with our own Commodore Maciek Matyjaszczuk and Chris Lomax taking well earned third place honours.

Racing: Regular racing takes the form of class racing - boats race only against their own kind. This makes for bigger, better fleets. WHSC racing classes are the GP14 and the Laser. Club members participate both here and at other venues.
