Over the weekend of the 7/8/9th of October Iain Horlock and Victoria Upton Travelled to Burnham on crouch in Essex to compete in the annual invitation only Endeavour Trophy event.
This is the first time in over a decade that an Exe sailing club team has been invited. Iain and Victoria only managed one practice sail together before the event, so they knew they were in for a challenge! 26 teams of national champions turned up and competed 8 races over two days on the tidal waters of the Crouch and Roach. They managed to place every race inside the top 20, including two 13ths, but as racing was so tight they finished 20th overall. Iain and Victoria were happy with their performance and would like to thank Exe sailing club and its members for their support. Hopefully they will get to go again one day!
