News from Minorca Sailing

Minorca Sailing staff turned out en masse on Sunday to contest the "Blockhead Challenge" Laser race. The Blockhead is an annual event and in this edition 32 boats took to the water for some well contested racing. A new 3 race format was used with the racing in as close as possible to the beach and jetty, making the event more spectator friendly than previous years. The evening breeze, although a little light towards the end, was sufficient for nice racing.

Laser specialist Tom Hayes took 2 wins and with one discard applied took the overal win. First windsurfer with highly consistent top 6 placings was Ben Easton, Honor Fell was 3rd overall and comfortably first Radial and Ian Aldridge just beat Tom Hall to finish first manager.
