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.

update:   We  now have some additional prizes provided by Spinlock.  In support of the launch of their exciting new range of 50N PFDs this season, Spinlock will be supplying a number of WINGS as prizes for key events.

Already the choice for team BAR, the WING offers the performance sailor a fresh approach to PFD design, focusing on the speed, athleticism and high agility of the new generation of sailors in a compact minimalist design.
