SigneT Open at Paxton Lakes SC.

This year's Paxton Open was held on 15 and 16 May. Michael Stevens picked up Robert Briton to crew for Richard Cannon and ST368 was the sole Aquarius dinghy to go up this year and so its right and proper that he should complete this article . Over to you Richard...

Richard was hoping that there would be better sailing moving away from the river but no; it was still very light variable or non existent wind.

As usual Paxton had courses of many marks that changed every race. It was a lottery as to which side of the islands it was best to go.

Richard was to generally get things right and won each race. Michael helmed ST872 but couldn,t make it go.

There was a very enjoyable evening at Tom Field’s 18th birthday party up near Peterborough. Many of the Signet crowd were there.

As Sunday didn’t count for the Annual Series Richard gave Robert ST368 to sail and Richard Sailed ST872; he couldn’t make it go either.
