This is also Round 1 of this years Travellers Series, the best five results from any of the nine events will count towards the 2018 RG65 UK Class Champion Trophy.

A cloudy day with a few light showers greeted seventeen skippers at Eastbourne Princess lake on Saturday morning. Wind direction was more or less straight down the lake all day, strength between 10-14 mph, however the gusts that were forecast never materialised. Most skippers sailed on A rig all day with a few changing to B rig for one or two races.

The race team did an excellent job with 23 races completed all issues settled on the water and the whole event sailed in a competitive but well manned fashion. The top finishing places changed constantly throughout the day and in the end only 5 points separated the winner Phil Holliday from runner up Alex Cory. See the full results (below/above).

A special thanks to the Eastbourne ladies who kept us well supplied with tea/coffee and bacon baps and cakes.

We all look forward to being invited back again next year.

Full results are up on the Eastbourne website and are attached below
