Winter Series round 4 (27th Jan) score sheet & report > FE Rd4 27th Jan 2019
It was windy, very, very windy! The water was so choppy the racing was reduced to a slow crawl just trying to keep the boats under control or avoid getting flipped over. After 1 race for both classes all agreed to give up and go home! Dave Lowther won Club Class, Russ Chilcott the Mini Hydro – but everyone was beaten by the gale force winds!

Numbers were down a little but still had a good afternoon with lots of close racing in both classes through all the heats. Mini Hydro is still as much about finishing the race and avoiding hitting the markers or each other as going the fastest! See score sheet for full reports.
