7th July IOM racing postponed

As there are several other regional races taking place on 7th and also the small matter of the England Quarter Final match taking place on the same day we have decided the racing is better moved to an alternative date to ensure a good turnout.

The IOM racing scheduled for 7th July will now be held on 11th August instead.

Marblehead World Champion

In case anyone hasn’t already heard, Brad Gibson successfully defended his Marblehead World Champion Title in Germany, making it 4 in a row.

There is an excellent report by Darin Ballington on the MYA website  so I won’t bother repeating the details here, but once again congratulations to Brad.

 

10r Worlds

Congratulations to Brad Gibson on retaining his 10r World Championship Crown at Biblis in Germany.

Christofe Boisnault (FRA) took second place and Mateo Longhi (ITA) third.

This Monday sees the start of the Marblehead World Championship at the same venue, where Brad will be joined by fellow club members Martin Roberts and Bill Culshaw. That event can be followed here
