Autumn Team Racing at Westbere Lakes

 
A small but determined fleet of ten teams met on the first properly chilly day of the autumn for a team racing event hosted by King's Canterbury.
 
In busterly and difficult conditions racing was of a high quality with some resulting close matches.  Initially in two leagues of five each teams raced 4 races before being organised into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets for the knock-out stage.  Emerging strongly in the early stages were Ardingly, Norwich and King's 1, they were joined by Sevenoaks in the Gold fleet.  The Suffolk teams, Ipswich and RHS, and the Kent teams, KSSA and King's 2 made up the Silver fleet.  The final pairing of Ardingly 2 and Winchester kept each other company in the Bronze Fleet.
 
The final rounds saw Ardingly 1 and King's 1 into the final with Ardingly winning in the best of three.  RHS and Ipswich making it to the Silver final, but even the threat of walking home wasn't enough to persuade RHS to relinquish the win to Ipswich!.  Winchester won out over Ardingly 2, which made Ardingly both the overall winner and loser at the event.
 
Thanks to both the Westbere Club and King's for hosting the event.
