Ullswater Week 2014
18 August 2014 (0 reads)


37 boats took part in this years Ullswater Week, with 19 visitors from as far away as Loch Lomond, to the

south coast of England. The weather for the week ranged from wet and windy at the start of the week to Thursday when the lack of wind prevented any racing. Despite this, all fleets managed 6 out of the scheduled 8 races plus the Island Race was sailed on the Tuesday.

Congratulations to Josh Moran, UYC, who won the Asymmetric Fleet, and to Ben Ratcliffe from Scammonden SC who won the Conventional Fleet in his Streaker.  Sally Ratcliffe made it a family affair from Scammonden SC by winning the Junior Fleet, also in a Streaker.

Just how well will this year's Air Jordan gamma blue 11s retro do give that it's a colorway we've never seen before? We can�t exactly imagine an Air Jordan XI sitting on shelves for too terribly long, but we have a feeling they won't fly off shelves as quick as previous years'"Concord" and "Bred" releases. The sneakers will land a bit earlier than we're used to seeing them-December 21st is the due date. Stay with us after the break for extra images on the "Gamma Blue" Jordan 11 gamma blue 11s and watch for them soon at shops like Nohble.
