2017 Match Racing Results
Congratulations to Oxford Team Racing Association who are now this years Match Racing Champions! They were the highest placed NSSA team in the RYA schools Match Racing event last weekend.
Only three starts were achieved on the Saturday and these races were abandoned when the wind died completely. But on Sunday it was great match racing conditions and even some sunshine and so the full round robin was sailed.
Thanks to all the other NSSA member teams who entered to make it a great weekend. Thank you to the RYA, umpires, race officials and everyone else who gave up their time.
