Six boats defied the forecast and made it to Mumbles YC for their Open event yesterday and a chance to get some practice ahead of the Nationals next month. It was a Bowmoor 1, 2, 3 with Matt Banbrook winning, Toby Banbrook 2nd in his CI and Will Morris 3rd. Well done to Matthew, David and William from Himley Hall. Saturday was brutal with very strong winds and only one of the 3 scheduled races completed. Sunday was a totally different day - champagne sailing with breeze and plenty of sunshine and 4 great races.
 
Mumbles YC were brilliant hosts and the venue is perfect for a Byte Nationals - if you've not yet signed-up, what is stopping you?
