A Bough Beech SC team (with two Oxford and one Cambridge helms) won a vintage Oxford Magnum 2017 held at Farmoor on 11/12th November 2017, from a maxi-entry of 21 teams. A (Royal) Thames Exiles team was 2nd and the Society took Bronze. Cambridge Blue were top university, finishing 4th overall. Sailing was restricted by very light and fickle winds on the Saturday. However, a stiff Northerly provided many thrills and not a few spills on the Sunday.

 
The loss of time on Saturday meant that the overall results were decided on Sunday’s round robins for the various fleets. A big thank-you to Organiser Lauren Davis, Oxford SC, Umpires, Race Officers, Finisher Amanda Hebbert, and student helpers for contributing to a most successful event. Detailed results will be available for a time on the kSail Events Portal.
