An award for the Offshore winner in 2017 to represent PSUK during the 2018 season.
The PSUK Offshore championship 2018 took place as a combined event with the NCA's annual regatta. The event was run at a loss and an award will now go to the organisers to compensate for the loss.
Dinghy championship organisers 2018 (Hampshire) made no claim for financial support
The award for the winner of the Dinghy Nationals 2017 to represent PSUK during the 2018 season was not awarded this year.
The report indicated a small closing balance.
The courses were all triangle-sausage type courses and the racing well run by the sailing club. Turn out was low however.
The event was won by Frances Gifford.
There was an informal consultative meeting and it was tentatively agreed for Avon and Somerset to run the event next year at Chew Valley Lake.
