01 May 2017 FF Editor 1781 Northern Travellers, Classic and Silver Waples Wines Northern Traveller Series after Round 1 Previous Article Classics celebrate class 70th year Next Article Round 2 of Waples Wines Series at Dovestone this weekend The first round of the 2017 6 event series was hosted by Royal Windermere Yacht Club over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th April. The forecast was not encouraging however proved to be glorious with unseasonal sun and warmth. The wind was not quite as accommodating as the winds proved fairly light and fickle.The club were able to run the full program and the weekend proved very enjoyable for the crews of the 20 boats that took part. 2017 marks the 70th year of the Flying Fifteen class and it was therefore fitting that the 20 boat fleet included the early classics Sail No 202 Silver Fox, 617 Fettercairn and 759 Flame. These boats were in magnificent order and were sailed competitively with their more modern sisters in the lighter winds and flat water conditions that prevailed.Hopefully this year these old ladies will be joined by other classics out on the water. As usual the Waples Wines Northern Traveller Series results do not include the top 15 teams from the previous Qualifying series (Northerns, Southerns, Inlands, Scottish and British Nationals). The final results after Round 1 are therefore as follows; 1 4031 RWYC Nigel Tullett Richard Rigg 2 3641 B&FYC Mike Preston David Manifold 3 4024 GWSC Dave Lucas Phil Evans 4 4017 RWYC Phil Snewin Ros Coleman 5 617 RSC Graham Lamond Alistair Lamond Classic 6 3751 RWYC Julian newman Amamda Wilson 7 3573 RWYC John Atkinson Elizabeth Moreton 8 3539 RWYC Dave Heron Chris Ducker 9 202 RYA Bobby Salmond David Hill Classic 10 3623 BSC Angus Corry Shaun Billany 11 3517 USC Craig Robinson Hannah Davies 12 3130 SWSC Jordan Aspin Jason Benn Silver 13 3210 RWYC Adam Cowley Lawrence Clabburn Silver 14 3903 RWYC Keith Jamieson Pierre Labatt 15 3379 BSC Gary Butler Paul McCarthy Silver 16 3602 B&FYC Peter Mountain R Mountain 17 3627 SSC Rob Goodison Jon Mallory 18 3791 RWYC Richard Bartholomew Sarah Bartholomew Rate article No rating Rate this article: No rating Tags Silver waples wines classics Share Print Switch article Classics celebrate class 70th year Previous Article Round 2 of Waples Wines Series at Dovestone this weekend Next Article Related articles 2019 Notts County SC Open - Report & Results Llangorse Open & Classic Nationals 2018 Flying 15 Waples Wines Open 2017 Rutland SC Classics celebrate class 70th year Waples Wines F15 Northern Travellers Series 2017 Comment Collapse Expand Comments (0) You don't have permission to post comments.
