Allen Burrell was presented with the prestigious solid silver Travellers Trophy at the Warsash end of season event on October 18th. Burrell with 76pts from the 7 event series was the clear winner from Martin Hughes on 100pts and John Heyes with 125 pts. A very healthy entry of 94 sailors contested the series, with the National Championships attracting the biggest single entry.
The scoring does not include any discards to help promote attendance at events and so Ed Thorburn who was awarded a prize for attending all 7 events nearly walked away with the famous trophy, finishing a close 4th on 126 pts.
This year the Travellers Trophy was used as the qualification event for the new Junior funding programme , with Jack Arnell and Cameron Tweedle the two highest placed Juniors for 2015.
