In blustery conditions Ian Jones from Dovestone SC claimed the Streaker Northern Area Championships with a race to spare. Issac Marsh, last years winner from Dovestone SC, was runner up and Martin Penty from Beaver SC in 3rd Place.
A fleet of 19 Solos gathered at West Riding Sailing Club for the second event of the northern series. Whilst other parts of the country were bathed in sunshine, heavy cloud hung over Wintersett Reservoir, but a decent breeze blew all day to allow the great tight racing you come to expect in the Solo fleet. At the end of the day only 6 points separated the top 6 placings, and frequently on the water you could throw a pocket handkerchief over the leading 6 or 7 boats, such was the closeness of the racing.
