2017 Janeway Series
At the end of September the Janeway Memorial Regatta at CSHBC finished off the 2017 season. With only seven boats, this year was not as well attended as usual, a victim of unlucky timing. Still the ever-hospitable host club members went out of their way to make all welcome.
It was breezy on Saturday, with a good 15-18 knots of wind, but by Sunday morning this had totally died away. The wind blew fitfully from almost every direction in the last race, never more than a couple of knots, and the final weather leg was completed running under spinnaker.
Overall winner was Guy Gurney sailing A16 Savvy, crewed by John Withington, Bill Stout and Holly Spezzano. Tom Carroll of CSHBC started well by winning the first race in A56 Tara, and ended up second on points. Third, and surely the most impressive, were Stephen Jay and Mark Feck who raced the series with only the two of them aboard A148 Alliance.
