Trott On

Dave Trott takes 3rd place at the Banbury Vintage Open on the 20th September, sailing Magician (Merlin 522) with Don Brown as crew

Dave and Don took 5th, 4th and 2nd places in the three races to finish 3rd overall from a field of seven vintage Merlin Rockets that took to the waters of Boddington Reservoir on a bright sunny day that was sadly lacking in wind. Although sailing under the flag of Brookvale SC since Dave is a long-standing helm at Midland he's still counting it as a win for this club as well.

Full account and pictures are available on the Banbury Sailing Club website here, with a photo 4th on the right captioned "Ten Sixty Six & Magician". Dave is in the second boat.
