The Cambridge Uni Nautical Team Sailors enjoyed a clean sweep of victories at a qualifier for the UK Team Racing Association (UKTRA) Championships at Bowmoor on 27 January.
All five teams raced each other twice in a fleet of six evenly matched Vanguard dinghies. The winners secured their route to the Championships which are to be held at West Kirby in late March and are recognised as the team racing national championships. Spinnaker II, which included sailors like Dave Ellis, Fiona Coates and Nigel Wakefield, may yet qualify as one of the best losers.

The sailors on the winning Cambridge team were Rob Sherrington and Rosie Barnes, Archie Massey and Mark Carlton, and Nick Craig and Keith Bedborough.
