Roger Gilbert crewed by Ben McGrane continued their impressive season winning the first of the Sailjuice Winter Series events held at Draycote Water.

The pair were consistent counting all results in the top 5 on Saturday and winning the more breezy pursuit race on Sunday.

'The winter events have always been a key part of our season as we use them to maintain performance and learn going into the next year. Particularly Sunday's sort course pursuit race with 11 marks and 90 boats to negotiate gave us plenty to think about with a lot of pressure boat handling moments, varied angles of sailing and constant gear shifting to maximise speed. Really pleased with our performance during the weekend and how well the Hyde Sails package worked across the wind range.' (Ben McGrane's thoughts on the weekend)

With the Hyde Sails offer on 505 sails running until the end of November there is still time to take advantage of the competitive pricing on our proven designs. Click Here for the Hyde Sails Webshop.
