Just because it’s too cold to sail at Bolton doesn’t mean everyone stops sailing!

Quite a few members headed down the A580 to Leigh and Lowton for their Winter Tipsy Icicle Series and they all did very well…

In the Junior Fleet, 6th Place went to Michael Platt in his Topper.

2nd place in the Handicap Fleet, pipped by a National 12, was Andy Flitcroft in his RS300, closely followed in 3rd place by Mark and Sam Platt in their GP14.

The Handicap Fleet also consisted of a large contingent of Bolton Supernova sailors with Stuart Catterall in 4th, Roger Price 8th, Eddie Waring 11th, Alex Collins 12th, Iain Thompson 16th and Geoff Ditchfield in 23rd.

In the Lazer fleet, Zena Martin fought off a lot of competition to come 14th out of 43 boats.

Peter Mackin also ventured out but headed over to Southport Sailing Club to take part in their winter open series.

Well done to all who travelled and see you all soon back at Bolton.
