Noble Marine Supernova Traveller’s Trophy By Chris Watts

Despite relatively small turnouts in the previous two years that this event has been held, it was decided to have another go this year, especially as this is still the only event south of London.  In fact there was one more boat than last year with 6 visitors joining 4 club boats.  Although the forecast was for force 4 southerly gusting 5, with some sun later, those arriving to sail on the 250 acre reservoir, set in attractive North West Kent countryside, were greeted with a very light south easterly.

Finn Open 2018 Report

1st   Allen Burrell 2nd Dan Patten 3rd Richard Sharp Race Results 2018 Finn Open On Saturday 7th April 2018 Bough Beech hosted a Finn open meeting which was shared with Supernovas and Streakers.

This enabled the race team to use the full length of the lake and set a challenging course that was ideal for the Finns. In Race 1 Richard Sharp used his local knowledge to escape up the [...]
