BSDRA Southern Championships (British Schools Dinghy Racing Association)

posted 27 Apr 2016, 01:15 by Caroline Payne
The first event of the summer term saw our team of 6 sailors arrive to cold, but sunny and unusually windy conditions at Spinnaker Sailing Club for the event hosted by Winchester College.
With 3 new crews for the experienced helms due to a number of boys on a study trip to Ypres, this meant that the team would have to work hard together to gain the wins against the more experienced sixth form teams from other schools.  In the seeding round, Claires Court won 4 out of 6 races, beating Charterhouse, Winchester (who lost in the final), Clifton and Eton.  This placed them in the Silver league where they finished equal second having beaten RGS Guilford.
One of the umpire team at the end of the day commented on how well the team had worked together during the races.
