Steve Nicholson Memorial Trophy

North Sails

Charlie Cumbley wins the Trophy

The GJW Sailjuice Winter Series continued on Saturday with a record number of entries taking part in the Steve Nicholson Memorial Trophy, hosted by Northampton Sailing Club.

There were two races for the 150 boats that entered the event and they were split into a singlehanded, doublehanded and asymmetric fleet.

The day started with a light breeze and beautiful sunny conditions, but as forecast the wind built during the day finally ending with a squall blowing 40 knots, which resulted in the cancellation of the last asymmetric race.

Christian Birrell and Richard Anderton won the doublehanded fleet in their North powered Fireball and North One Design's Charlie Cumbley won the singlehanded fleet and the overall Trophy.
