Cambridge Finish 5th At BUSA Match Racing – April 2017

Cambridge put up a strong showing at the BUSA Match Racing Championships at Weymouth 21-23 April 2017. The team finished 2nd in their group in the round robin on the Friday, but lost 1-2 to Warwick in a closely-fought quarter final on the Saturday. They finished 5th overall after winning a ‘death or glory’ one-race playoff against Loughborough on the Sunday. Well done team!

Exeter (with Gilmore representation in the shape of Laura, sister of Robbie) were the victors in what was very much a light-wind event. At one stage on Sunday it looked as if racing might not be possible, but a zephyr eventually filled in. Congratulations to Exeter on adding the match racing trophy to their earlier BUCS/BUSA team racing victory.

Cambridge Team:
James Pinder (Helm)
Helmi Burton-Papp
