Match Racing: we have a winner!

Congratulations to Neil, winner of the first ever Match Racing day at Croydon Sailing Club!

The day saw a series of closely fought 1-on-1 races around an Olympic-style course, with racers using a combination of their sailing skills and mastery (perhaps we won’t go that far) knowledge of the rules to out-sail and outsmart their opponent in any way they could, but after all the races were run, and despite some great sailing by all, Neil was able to stay just far enough ahead to remain undefeated and become our 2015 Match Racing champion!

A big thanks to Phill for taking up the role of Match Master (sounds much better than DO, right?!) and helping to make the day such a success.
