You couldn’t beat the drama on the last lap of the final race in round four of the Mirror Northern Traveller series on Bassenthwaite Lake.

There were four boats in the lead group constantly swapping places.  But then Robin Dawson (Bass SC) capsized.  This left three boats vying for the lead each of which would win the two-races-to-count series if they were first over the line.

Northern Traveller 3 at Hollingworth Lake SC, Saturday 20th April

At last, Mirror sailors might have said, we have a day of sunshine and a pleasant wind for racing. Hollingworth Lake welcomed 9 visitors to the Open Meeting on Saturday, 20th April. The event was dominated by 3 boats from Beaver SC, with Emma Grayson and Ben Settle taking the win, with a particularly clear margin in the third race.

Northern Traveller 2 at Otley SC, Saturday 13th April

On the 13th April the mirrors gathered at Otley Sailing Club for the second of the Mirror Northern Travellers. The wind was light in the morning for the first race and consequently very shifty. Throughout the day we were met with some very large gusts that came through every now and again, sometimes coming in at different angles.
