The weekend of 8 and 9 March was big for university team racing. Fifty-eight teams competed at three of the most prestigious team racing events of the calendar: Manchester & Liverpool’s Big Lash at West Kirby SC, Exeter’s Excalibur on Roadford Lake and the London Duck at BTYC Sailsports Club on the Welsh Harp Reservoir. Current university students, alumni, clubs, youth and schools competed.
West Kirby won the Lash, but Bristol OBs the prizes! Itchenor rode the Duck, ahead of the Irish Alumni. And Plymouth OBs beat Alumni at the Excalibur.
