Well done to the North powered team of Tim Riley and James Taylor on finishing 2nd Overall in this weekend's Tiger Trophy held at Rutland Water SC. Saturday's forecast big breeze arrived shortly after the boats had launched, with gust over 35kts, making it a wild day of everyone. Sunday's pursuit race saw a perfect 15-22kts, where the youth teams sailed well to hold off the chasing pack of faster trapeze boats. The Fireballs of Nathan Batchelor/James Clark and Christian Birrell/Sam Brearey finishing 5th and 6th overall, both using North Sails.
