HD Sails produced another championship winning performance at the GP14 Northern Championships over the 14th/15th July. 29 boats competed at this years event hosted by Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club. 2 races were held on Saturday in light and variable conditions. HD Sailors Mike Senior and Chris White put in a solid performance on the first day to win both races, only to find out later they were found to be OCS in the second. Pressure was then on for Sunday given their discard had already been used.
Motivated by their mistake on Saturday and a good force 5-6 Mike and Chris managed to take the overall win from current GP14 World Champions Ian Dobson and Andy Tunnicliffe posting a 3rd and two 1st’s in testing conditions. For a full report visit the GP14 site here
Mike and Chris have just one more warm-up event for the Worlds at the Irish Nationals over the 21st/22nd July, where they will be looking to fine tune their HD set-up ready for Looe in August. Will keep you updated.
