Here's the report that appeared in today's issue of the Kent and Sussex Courier.

At Bewl Water, the Boxing Day Bottle event was hugely enjoyed by everyone with sunny weather perfect for winter sailing.

A brisk west north-westerly wind at about 12 to 15 knots with some strong gusts resulted in good planing reaches, when the hull lifts out of the water, over the figure-of-eight course.

Seasonal refreshments were consumed afterwards, and prizes were awarded to the top three competitors, Martin Brooking, Martin Dennant and Phil Carter-Haines in their Lasers.

Why not join them for the Winter Freezer Series which starts on Sunday? There will be three races back-to-back, from 10.40 am. Call 07951 258816 for more details.
