Great weekend for National 18 English Championships on the Blackwater River hosted by the Blackwater Sailing Club

Saturday’s light conditions were followed by a solid planing breeze on Sunday. Five races had three different winners, but in the end it was Jess Berney’s Panther that prevailed overall.
