A large variety of classes took to the water for the Banbury Rally on 8th October, from Gull to International 14 and included the first outing for Peter Vinton’s newly restored Swift catamaran which did not race but was sailed.
A good turnout of local boats included a Mirror 16, Lark, Wayfarer, GP14, Solo, Enterprise and a Gull plus Merlin Rockets and visitors added Hornet, Albacore, International 14s, Finn, International Moths, OK, GP14 and more Merlin Rockets for some diverse racing.
The meeting was held jointly with the Merlin Rocket vintage wing and formed the finale of their De May travellers’ series.
Prizegiving was divided into Merlin Rockets and the rest with top 3 in each receiving prizes.
