The third and final leg of the SW Challenge series took place with the Exmoor Beastie 3 hour pursuit race at Wimbleball Sailing Club on Sunday 20th March.

Three Ospreys, Ben and Simon Hawkes from the home club, Terry Curtis and Peter Greig and Ros and David Downs joined around 50 other boats for the race. The quite light and shifty breeze didn't seem to suit the Osprey particularly well, but that did not seem to cause Ben and Simon any trouble as they worked through to finish in eighth place.

The results of the South West Challenge have now been worked up. Ben won the Junior trophy with one race in a Laser and two in the Osprey. In the senior results Terry and Peter were 2nd and Ros and David third, so not a bad showing for the Ospreys.
