A brace of 7 brave Fireflies braved a cold day with plenty of breeze at the 2013 Tiger Trophy at Rutland Sailing club.
The event, formally called the ‘Rutland Challenge’ is one of the SailJuice series, which includes some of the big winter handicap events all over the country
Steve Tylecote and Elysia Dooley, sailing at their home club led the field of Fireflies, finishing in 90th place (approximately 90 places more than Steve is accustomed to – it must have been windy!) The rest of the field were close behind in the 186 boat fleet.
The next event at Rutland is the 2013 season Finale – the Inland Championships.
