grb 2014 inlands 1With a large percentage of the UK D-One fleet only arriving home from their Gold Cup just days earlier in the week a depleted fleet of D-One's attended their Inland Championships at Oxford Sailing Club over the weekend of the 25th/26th October.   Saturday was shared with the D-Zero's and International Canoe's. The aim of the day was for short action packed racing and minimal faff and that's exactly what the race officer served up with four 35-40 minute three lap races back to back.
