The RS100 fleet met at Chew Valley Lake for their first open meeting of the year, the aptly named Winter Championship. A select group of 13 sailors turned up over the cold weekend. Three races were sailed on the Saturday in shifty conditions with some heavy rain and big gusts, including one measured at 27 knots.
