Strath Dinghy teams have had a busy first semester
SSS League 1
After the first instalment of the SSS leagues, the Strathclyde teams all lie in very good positions to qualify make it into Gold or Super gold leagues. Very little wind on the Sunday meant that only 60 races were competed over the weekend, meaning the pool stages weren’t completed.
The Blue team only raced 4 races. Despite a bad start, losing to Edinburgh Blue they won there next 3 races comfortably all in 1,2,3’s
