Summer Traveller Series 2008 Report

The Summer series was well attended with 66 people taking part from all accross the country. The winner was Charles Watson from Halifax who sailed a very consistent series but never actually winning an event lots of runner up places though just deserts after coming in second in last years Summer TT series.

Defending champion Kevin Dutch was distracted with expecting a baby in the later stages and thus was unable to attend as many events as he would have liked but congratulations to Kevin and Jo.
