GP14 Open – Report and results

Sunday, 20 June 2021 Off By stouty

Eleven boats took to the water in the 2021 GP 14 Open. There were four visitors and seven boats from Trimpley.

In a quiet day with variable winds John and Jack Telford from Bassenthwaite SC took the honours winning the first and second races – a good return for a four hour drive from the North.

Trimpley sailors sailed well and managed a Silver fleet first for Simon Fletcher and John Cookson and Dave Beechey and Ian Patterson won the Bronze fleet category.

Leslie Freeman ( the only female sailor on the day ) and crew Andy Blakeway were always in contention and finished in an admirable 7th place.

Trimpley results;

4th Simon Fletcher & John Cookson

5th Dave Beechey & Ian Patterson

6th Keith Budden & Ben Roberts

7th Leslie Freeman & Andy Blakeway

Thanks to all race officials and safety boat helms as well as helpers in and around the galley.

A good day was had by all !
