Datchet Winter Warm Up – Final Weekend

This will have been my 19th FF Winter Warm Up, and I can’t recall one with weather as fickle as this year. The records show that we had fifteen teams race during the series, despite the weather challenge! We lost the first Sunday to snow, on our boat we lost the second to ice (!), but three teams managed to race that one.  The third weekend was simply terrific, and today….

Today, twelve/thirteen teams rolled up, and all we had was brilliant blue sky and perfect reflections – a great day for fiddling with boats, but a tad disappointing for racing.

The Winter Warm Up final results saw an impressive win for John Hanson and Helen Selden. Mervyn and Graziano were second, Ian and James were third.

Next weekend is the lay weekend between Dinghy Show (lots of us are going) and the Datchet FF Spring Open Meeting  on 10th/11th kicks off the UK 2012 Season….
