Dickie Bird scores 2016

Report & scores by Nigel Clarke,

Eight boats arrived for the event, to be greeted by a Northerly wind and bright sunshine. Racing got underway with the first four races being won by different skippers, after a Remembrance Day break for a 2 minute silence, a wind shift eventually resulted in an early lunch break and a complete course change to the other bank.

Out of a total of 16 races Richard Aucott was the most consistent winning 6 and eventually taking the trophy with a 4 point margin.
