The ‘Old Joe’ was hosted by the University of Birmingham Sailing Club over the weekend of the 10th/11th June at South Staffs Sailing Club. Now in its third year, the Old Joe has become a firm fixture in the team racing calendar, timed after exams and before most head off for SailWeek or a long vacation of sailing. The provision of camping, food, marquee, a cool jazz band and beer tent (over and above the Friday social in Birmingham) gave this edition a special edge.

The teams that gathered to race were Birmingham Off White, two Birmingham ‘Old Boys’ teams, ‘Karen and Some Men’, Leeds, London Castaways, two Nottingham teams, South Staffs, Surrey Pink & Green, and Swansea Alumni.

Event Secretaries, Emily Heath and Louise MacIver-Jones provide a full Report with many Photos.
