South West Travellers 2014

Esther & Scarlett win Gul SW Traveller at Plymouth on Countback

Sunday the 7th of September saw Red sails reappear in Plymouth sound for the 5th and final round of the Gul SW Mirror traveller series 2014 combined with the Ullman Enterprise open at the Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club.

With the forecast promising a maximum of 4 knots of wind and settled weather, the race team discussed long and hard about cancelling the event on Saturday. Only on a visit to the race area was it found that a sea breeze had developed and it was hoped it would return again for the event the next day. So with a delayed start posted late on Saturday evening and emails and texts flying around the ether late into the evening, the fleet made their way across the border to Devon.

With a steady southerly 12-17 knot breeze in Falmouth harbour, Restronguet sailing club's open meeting and Gul SW Traveller series was a success, with 2 traveling from Looe and the locals sailing, it lead to some great racing.

In race one Scarlett Shepherd & Harvey Martin sailing 70716 "The Bootle Bumtrinket" made the best start, but Martin Egan and Geroge Lenney in 69667 "Bold Forester" were first to the windward mark with Esther Bowdler & Scarlett Crago in 70537 "Complete & Utter Chaos" second with Scarlett & Harvey close behind.
