XOD Central Solent Challenge

Richie Bell

Won by 'Lass'

Lass Winners of the XOD Central Solent Challenge

Warming up for Cowes Week, in just a few weeks time, seventeen XODs headed out into the Solent at the weekend for the Central Solent Challenge hosted by the Royal Southern Yacht Club.

In light and testing conditions John Tremlett and Richard Jordan sailing 'Lass' edged out David Palmer on Princess Jalina to win the trophy.
Close finish for second & third place in penultimate race.

The race officer, who had to deal with the light winds, strong tide and the shipping channel, did well to get racing under way on the final day, but it certainly gave the fleet something to think about.

Full results can be seen here.

North powered boats came in 1st, 2nd & 4th.
