Valentine’s weekend was celebrated at the University of Nottingham Sport Sailing Club’s annual Snakebite, with much love shown for the perfectly breezy and sunny weather! Well into the university sailing season, the event was well-attended and saw some fantastic racing from some of the best teams on the circuit. The event hosted eighteen teams, fifteen of which were university teams from ten different universities and three others: West Kirby Youth Team, a Notts County team and Tonbridge School, to team race in Fireflies at Notts County Sailing Club, which happily hosts the event each year.

Following challenging semis, the leaders in the Silver Fleet, West Kirby Youth eventually succumbed to Edinburgh Blue in the Petit Finals, while Cambridge Grey won the event from NOGs in the Finals.

Whilst all the volunteers and officials were thanked for their efforts, especial mention was made of David Jackson, UoNSSCs Vice President, for his contribution to the smooth running and success of Snakebite 2016. Thanks go to Nottingham’s 1st Team Captain, Evie Howarth for her Report, much illustrated, on and off the water, by Notts County SCs David Eberlin.
