Green Lane off Sandy Lane, Lowton, Greater Manchester, WA3 1BQ
Results There were 18 boats at the Leigh and Lowton Phantom Open on 15 April 2012 - which was a great turnout. Phantom racing in the North is growing. The winds were from the north (and east and west!) and about force 2 (and force 1 and force 3!). I think you get the picture! Cool temperatures and sunshine.
The racing was close and the results showed 5 points ties! Andrew Wilde was
the event winner. I can’t comment on any dual at the front of the fleet as
it was too far away from me! The results will appear on the “events” tab at
the top of this webpage.
The concurrent club racing tested everybody’s “look out” skills. A “figure
of 8″ course was more like Scalextrix / Wacky Races at times.
There are some superb photo’s of the event, so follow this link and then
