Jil McGinley Takes Lead in Burns Trophy

Jil McGinley at the Burns Trophy Photo: Bob BatemanJil McGinley took the lead in the Burns Trophy Optimist series for September after two fine wins in testing conditions yesterday. Meanwhile, the copper fleet sailors found the conditions to be on the limit of their capabilities with a number of swampings and capsizes. However, in spite of this, most of them battled on and finished and will have learned a lot from the experience. The complete results are available in the results section above.

Coaching for the copper fleet and the beginners continues next weekend as usual. There will be no league racing next Saturday because of the Naval Race. There will also be a beach party for junior sailors on Sunday. More information on both these events to follow later
