Cambridge Blue finished 5th and top university in a tough Oxford Magnum held at Farmoor Reservoir on 12/13 November 2016. Cambridge Black bounced back from a somewhat disappointing set of results on the Saturday to win all their races on the Sunday and head the Bronze league. Birdham Bandits won the final 3-0 against the Society, but every race was closely fought and only decided on the final short beat to the finish.
There were 10 university, 8 alumni, and 2 school teams in the total entry of 20, which was divided into Gold, Silver, and Bronze leagues for the final stages of the competition. Sailing was restricted by lack of wind on the Saturday, but Sunday more than made up for it with sunshine and a good breeze. Royal Thames Blue (Cambridge alumni) lost 1-2 to the Society in the semi finals. Detailed results are available on the kSail website (opens in a new window).
