Going Old School!

Not strictly Soch Sails news but a reminder of other products that we supply and enjoy racing!

Looking at today’s forecast I thought I should dig out my RC Laser and take a trip up to Fleetwood for a round of the National TT series. Having not raced a Laser in nearly a year I wasn’t expecting too much from the day, especially with National Champion Derek Priestley and other top skippers on hand.

Uncle Dereck showed us all how to do it in less than ideal conditions and took the win with 17 points from 11 races. Second place went to none other than me, tied on 21 points with third place finisher Shaun Holbeche, but on count back I scored more top finishes and took the place.

Not a bad return to Laser racing for me and a return to the class that I started radio sailing with four years ago. Not as quick or responsive as most other classes but probably the only true one design radio sailing class out there and one we are proud to supply and race.
