The final Midland Area results are now available on the Solo Association Website.
Well done to Martin Honner for taking the title this year in what has been a very hard fought series.
110 boats have entered the series, with 13 qualifiers this year with an average attendance of ~18 boats to each event. The Solo fleet is a fantastic bunch of people to spend time with especially with the good humour and laughs we’ve had this year. The racing right throughout the fleet has been close and very competitive. Just like at National level, if you make a mistake at regional level you are punished, very quickly, and it's not easy to recover the places lost. The depth of talent and experience never ceases to amaze me and this year as Midland Rep I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know people much better. A personal thanks to all the clubs who have put in a huge amount of effort to make it a success. The Race Officers, safety boat teams, Galley teams, people taking photos and everyone else do a great job, and give up their time for us to sail around a variety of objects and shapes in the name of sport and enjoyment. A massive thank you to Allen for sponsoring the series, who have been very generous with the prizes and a pleasure to work with throughout season.
The prize giving for the overall series results will be on Saturday 29th Oct at EOS.
