First Day of 2020 University Trials – October 2020

A strong breeze provided good racing at the first day of the 2020 University Trials held at Grafham Water on Saturday 10 Oct 2020, but necessitated a switch to cutdown mains after an hour or so of racing.

The trials took place under the watchful eye of Olivia Jacklin (Capt) and Ollie Jagger. Numbers were restricted to 7 boats because of transport and social distancing considerations. The trials have therefore been spread over two weekends this year.

There is quite an array of talent participating in the trials, which augurs well for the future. The big question, however, is how much external competition will be possible this term in view of increasingly strict COVID-19 restrictions.
