Lightning Open - 2017 Results

This event should appeal to visiting helms and club members alike, and offers some close-quarter sailing on a delightful stretch of the River Thames. The Cookham Reach is also ideal for spectators, with excellent viewing along the Berkshire bank. We aim to sail Races 1 and 2 in the morning, with Race 3 after lunch, completing around 3pm with tea and cakes, or a visit to the bar!
